The Daily View for FTSE 100

  • At the moment, UKX’s price is down -17.77 (-0.25%) from the day prior.
  • This move is a reversal from the day prior, which saw price move up.
  • Regarding the trend, note that the strongest trend exists on the 50 day timeframe.
  • Price action traders may also wish to note that we see a pin bar candlestick pattern on FTSE 100. Given that we see downtrend on the 20 daily candle timeframe, and that such candlestick patterns often denote reversals, this may be worth noting.
  • The moving averages on the daily timeframe suggest a choppiness in price, as the 20, 50, 100 and 200 are all in a mixed alignment — meaning the trend across timeframes is inconsistent, indicating a potential opportunity for rangebound traders.
  • Divergence between UKX’s price and its RSI may be manifesting. As such, be on the lookout for trend reversal in UKX’s price.
