Daily chart for FTSE
Volatility

Monday's trading range was £70.37 (0.97%), that's slightly below last trading month's daily average range of £77.58. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is way below the markets average with the monthly volatility being slightly above average.

Support/Resistance

After trading as low as 7195.46 during the day, the stock index bounced off the key support level at 7197.80. The failure to close below the support could increase that levels importance as support going forward. The market was sold again around 7265.83 after having seen highs at 7275.00, 7266.60 and 7270.30 in the last three trading sessions. Obviously there is something going on at that level.

Trend

Although the index is experiencing a short-term up trend, this might just be a correction, as both the medium and long term trends are still in negative territory.

Conclusion

Both sentiments, the classical technical analysis and our quantitative statistics are in perfect alignment today showing a bearish sentiment for the next trading day.
