FTSE FOR FRIDAY (FTSE:UKX) We started this week with a commentary which suggested caution if believing the doomsayers who've been suggesting the index is in trouble. Our analysis revealed 7217 points was probably going to prove important. The FTSE still has not bettered this but...

By some miracle, the index appears to be regaining the post Brexit vote uptrend. While optimism risks being crushed by a set of dodgy US Payroll numbers, the US influence on European markets - certainly from a Payrolls perspective - appears to be waning. Though we could not help but wonder at the tentative moves on the US Futures during Thursday evening, suspecting some nerves may be present. However, FTSE Futures briefly bettered our 7217 trigger, so perhaps hope is in order.

The immediate situation for the FTSE signals movement above 7217 should now generate near term growth to a useless 7235 points. If bettered, secondary computes at 7355 points. As always, we'd a tad cautious with the secondary for Friday due to;

a.    Expecting another stonking up day on the back of a 160 point Thursday is unlikely.

b.    US Payrolls could spoil things

c.    There is the immediate 2018 downtrend at 7260 - BLUE on the chart.

Before we'd take any near term reversal seriously, the index needs below 7071 points as this looks capable of generating 7031 points. If broken, secondary calculates at 6871.  In the event of such a movement triggering, stop can probably be at 7156 points.

SUCCESS above means both FAST & SLOW targets were met. 'CESS means just the FAST target met and probably the next time it is exceeded, movement to the SLOW target shall commence.

Please remember, all prices are mid-price (halfway between the Buy and Sell). When we refer to a price CLOSING above a specific level, we are viewing the point where we can regard a trend as changing. Otherwise, we are simply speculating on near term trading targets. Our website is

UPDATE. We often give an initial and a secondary price. If the initial is exceeded, we still expect it to fall back but the next time the initial is bettered, the price should continue to the secondary. The converse it true with price drops.
