Daily technical analysis candlestick chart for FTSE 100 Index (FTSE) as at Oct 09, 2019

Wednesday's trading range has been £56.51 (0.79%), that's below the last trading month's daily average range of £81.39. Things look different on the weekly timeframe, where the market's trading range of the last week has been slightly above the market's average weekly trading range. The longer-term, monthly volatility is currently higher than usual for FTSE. Prices continued to consolidate within a tight trading range between 7133.00 and 7223.90 where it has been caught now for the last three trading days.

One bearish candlestick pattern matches today's price action, the Thrusting Pattern.

Prices are trading close to the key technical resistance level at 7199.40 (R1). FTSE 100 found buyers again today around 7139.90 for the third trading day in a row after having found demand at 7143.20 in the prior session and at 7133.00 two days ago. The last time this happened on September 19th, FTSE actually lost -0.16% on the following trading day.

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

Buying could accelerate should prices move above the nearby swing high at 7223.90 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 1.28% and DAX closing 1.04% higher. None of the markets ended the day in the red. Read more
