Rallies in FTSE/Dax spread look like downside opportunities

partner and technical analyst / 3 c analysis
United Kingdom

The second-quarter call to sell the FTSE at 6,325.0 points has been confirmed as initial gains in April and also in June have attracted sellers. Last week’s signals continued to point to selling rallies, and despite initial gains of 273 pts, the rally has been sold for sentiment to deteriorate by over 500 pts from Thursday’s 6,334.0 top. 

The FTSE/Dax spread is breaking a weekly bear trend, which is negative, but with daily sentiment oversold, bounces similar to last week's should be expected. These should remain temporary though as signals continue to point to selling into any strength.
