FTSE 100 index chart pattern


The following remark appeared in last week’s post on the daily bar chart pattern of FTSE 100: A convincing close above the previous (Apr 23) top of 7529 is required for bulls to regain control of the chart, and technically confirm completion of a bullish ‘cup and handle’ pattern…”
