FTSE 100 (#UKX)
The FTSE had almost a flat week up +0.03% in a consolidation as we highlighted: given the current moves, we will look for a break of specific levels for the new targets.
For the week ahead, a break of 7,000 may lead the Index to test 6,900. On the contrary, a close above 7,050 may lead to current resistance at 7,145.
From a technical perspective, we can clearly see both upward and downward trendline that are now arriving at conjunction: a break of one of the two levels may lead to stronger moves.
MACD and RSI are not giving, at this moment, particular direction.
A positive note is for sure given by a rising 50MA which can act as strong support in case of pullbacks.
Support at 6,900 and resistance 7,035
