FTSE 100 (UKX) Outperforms All equity indices, 2 Day Down Streak Snapped; Breaks Above 20 Day Average

The Hourly View for UKX

Last Updated May 14, 2021, 00:018 GMT

At the moment, FTSE 100’s price is up 2 (0.03%) from the hour prior. FTSE 100 has seen its price go up 8 out of the past 10 hours, thus creating some compelling opportunities for bulls. If you’re a trend trader, consider that the strongest clear trend on the hourly chart exists on the 50 hour timeframe. Price action traders may also wish to note that we see a pin bar candlestick pattern on FTSE 100. Given that we see an uptrend on the 10 hourly candle timeframe, and that such candlestick patterns often denote reversals, this may be worth noting. The moving averages on the hourly 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.
