FTSE THIS WEEK (FTSE:UKX) The index remains somewhat reticent of exceeding our 7217 points mentioned on Friday. Despite the highest achieved being 7214 points, we're still fairly hopeful some upward travel is possible, if only to celebrate children returning to prison (school)!

Near term, the market needs better 7258 points to exceed the downtrend since the start of the year. This is apparently going to prove possible with movement now above 7217 as a cycle to an initial 7350 should commence with secondary, if bettered, at 7510 points. Visually there's a fly in the ointment at the 7300 level as it appears a Glass Ceiling is auditioning. In reality, this is very liable to promote some sort of stumble on the way up but closure above the Glass Ceiling will tend make a challenge of the highs from January a reality.

That's about the end of the good news as until the market actually closes above that BLUE line, it remains in a position where reversal to 6,800 is the primary consideration.

We'd certainly raise an eyebrow or three should the index wither below 7050 points as this is looking certain to provoke 7,000 points initially. With secondary down at 6820, reasonably close to our 6,800 calculation.

For now, there's some hope and when we look at what some shares are doing, it will prove sensible to keep a weather eye on the banks.

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.
