Short relief for the FTSE

Director / PIA First
United Kingdom

While we remain bearish over the long term, our medium-term perspective is market neutral/bullish after the reaction rally from the UK referendum vote.

We highlight a reverse head-and-shoulders pattern and target a move above all-time highs towards 7,400 over the medium term. The bullish outside monthly candle indicates a move higher over the summer months and beyond. However, drilling down to the short term, evidence of a corrective move lower or temporary pullback is more than likely.

The weekly chart shows rejection from the approach to the previous long-term upwards trending support, now turned resistance. This recent bar looks likely to form a bearish shooting star and this will assist in a corrective move into next week.

Daily and 4-hour charts have shooting star, bearish outside and bearish engulfing candles so adding to the negative theme.
