Daily technical analysis candlestick chart for FTSE 100 Index (FTSE) as at Sep 14, 2018

Friday's trading range was £42.26 (0.58%), that's far below last trading month's daily average range of £67.75. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is way below the markets average with the monthly volatility being slightly above average. Prices continued to consolidate within a tight trading range between 7220.50 and 7325.30 which it has been in now for the last trading week.

Prices are trading close to the key resistance level at 7325.30. The index ran into sellers again today around 7323.83 for the third trading day in a row after having found sellers at 7319.60 in the previous session and at 7325.30 two days ago.

The trend is clearly bearish, showing an intact downtrend in the short, medium and long-term.

Buying could accelerate should prices move above the close-by swing high at 7325.30 where further buy stops might get activated.

With five out of the other five Major European Indices closing higher today, the ones that stand out on the positive side are TECDAX gaining 1.2% and DAX closing 0.57% higher. None of the markets ended the day in the red. Read more
