FTSE 100 (UKX) Down 1.09%; in an Uptrend Over Past 90 Days

The Hourly View for UKX

Last Updated January 12, 2021, 02:018 GMT

Currently, FTSE 100’s price is down -7 (-0.1%) from the hour prior. This is a reversal of the price action on the previous hour, in which price moved up. If you’re a trend trader, consider that the strongest clear trend on the hourly chart exists on the 20 hour timeframe. Of note is that the 50 hour changed directions on UKX; it is now pointing down. 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.
