FTSE pullback may be ending as crude lends support
Bearish signals in each of the last two days have been confirmed; investors selling futures on Wednesday to post a fifth lower daily low in a row and a loss of 41½ points on the day. However, the pullback is probably corrective and temporary and buying into the close has been assisted by crude attracting buyers at the $40 level. This has improved the immediate outlook as signals have switched back to bullish.
