The UK Financial Times Stock Exchange 100, more commonly known as the FTSE 100 or 'Footsie', is an index of share prices of the largest 100 companies listed on the London Stock Exchange (LSE) by market capitalization. The index was launched on January 3, 1984 at a base value of 1000, and the index level is calculated in real-time. The FTSE 100 represents approximately 81% of the entire market capitalization of the LSE, and even though it doesn't encompass the whole market, it is widely viewed as the best indicator of the heath of UK stocks. In recent years, however, given the uptick in international companies counted in the FTSE 100, this particular market index is no longer viewed as the best health indicator of the UK economy - that goes to the FTSE 250, which has a smaller proportion of multinationals among its constituents.

7550 and then down to 7415

I am thinking that the current leg up might run out of steam in the 7545 to 7560 area and then we get a leg down toward 7415 before the year end rally. The FTSE is struggling to push higher and lagging the Dax and SP, cable is pegging it too. We have a rate rise (potentially but pretty likely 0.25% increase) and that might well see an initial spike higher in cable ...

Bounced to 7520 - leg down to 7400 then year end rally

Hit the 7450 which was the target on the 7550 short. Ended up going a bit lower, hitting the lower support at 7430. Having now bounced to 7520, we might see a leg down to 7400 before a larger rally, but the bears need to break 7475 which is short term support.

Looking like 7565 is the short term high. Drop down to 7450

FTSE 100 might well have topped out at 7565 recently and is about to start a leg down to the 7450 support area. Dow is about to hit 23k, while the S&P is struggling to break 2560.

I think this needs a nice drop, before heading into the Christmas rally. This recent bounce by the GBPUSD, is certainly not helping the FTSE 100. Now, I strongly recommend to watch the Pound/US Dollar pair, because it will definitely show the direction for this UK index. Currently aiming for it to touch the trend line and then, if we're lucky, the break of it. ...

DOW and NIkkei are down. Others are up. Currencies under pressure due to the Yellen speech. I was long at open and short at 7310 which worked well. Trade positive. It really helps trading through the day and just general mentality, you grumpy bastards. Even if I'm down I'll try to enter a mentality where I feel like I have been profitable all day and caught the ...

A big move down at open made trading the break out of the opening 5min bar a tricky one. The opening 1h bar has not broken either.

We've had a bit of movement already in the FTSE. Down because of NK and further selling at open. Up again after hitting support (not other reason to be seen).47 5min opening bar break up worked though risky. We have not broken the opening 1h bar yet. Other trackers are mixed.

The trackers are consistently down .25% and the ftse fell overnight too stopping me out. I went short at 8am but the 5min opening bar of 15points broke up and is still hovering at that level. The 1h opening bar is broken upwards but I don't think that it has momentum.

The 5min opening bar break up got stopped out. I'm still long anticipating the breaking of the 1h opening bar to the upside. The other trackers are mostly down a little bit but we have a bit of a climb ahead after NK and Parsons Green.

I've been away on business but now back in London so let's get started! I've been able to make some money on my zulutrade account by following boi prod. Opening 5min bar break down failed Opening 1h bar is trying to break upwards. Hesitant to enter with trend because of mixed sentiment in the other trackers.

We have been looking to take advantage of the GBP strength however the move doesn't seem to want to pullback just yet. Correlating this with the FTSE100 we may be able to get into the GBP strength by shorting the FTSE100. A retracement into the 7390.00 level into previous price would be ideal for a short opportunity.

We've had abig jump down at open. Looking to close the gap by buying now. The other trackers are down a similar amount. 5min bar is risky but is still in profit. Wanting the 1h opening bar to break upwards.

We just had a bit of a move down so I am now long trusting in the support of 7400 and looking that the other trackers which are up. 5min opening bar break didn't quite work. 1h opening bar also failed. I don't think it was the CPI data that caused the drop.

Bit late today - on business in India. All the trackers are up. Not sure what weekend news made the FTSE jump yet. I'm finding it difficult to go long or short today because of no reason to do either apart from: The 5min opening bar broke up and is trending and still active. The 1h opening bar broke up and is trending and still active.

I was thinking long this morning but looking at the other indices, I've adjusted to a non moving plan today. We still haven't really broken the opening 5min bar let alone the 1h bar.

The trackers are all up bar the DOW which has dropped a huge 1%. I have my eyes on the 18th and 29th which opened to huge gaps down. 5min bar breakout was too risky because of the huge move at open - why did it move so much?
