FTSE100 - 28 February 2019

Tags

Fundamental Highlights

Despite the persisting uncertainties related to the UK’s withdrawal from the EU, the pound continued to gain ground and weighed on the Footsie that ended 0.6% lower on Wednesday. While a steady sterling keeps a lid on the FTSE’s gains, Investors await Brexit clarity ahead of Parliaments meaningful vote on PM Theresa May’s deal on March 12 and remain attentive to US-China trade headlines to impact market sentiment.

Technical Analysis

The Footsie continued its streak of losses and ended lower at 7107 on Wednesday. A bearish outlook is at play as the shorter 20-period MA is looking to cross below the longer 50-period MA while the daily RSI reading sits slightly above the 50-midline separating the index from negative territory. Meanwhile price would need to break below the 7060 level to reinforce bearish pressure and suggest a move towards the trend line support at 7000.

Support: 7060/ 7000
Resistance: 7180/ 7260
