    FTSE 100 Index Price forecast for the week of November 20, 2017, Technical Analysis

    The FTSE 100 Index fell during the week, breaking below the 7400 level. Now that we are below there, it’s likely that we will continue to drift a bit lower, perhaps reaching towards the bottom of the recent consolidation area, which I see as the 7200 level. The 7400 level is essentially “fair value” in … Continue reading FTSE 100 Index Price forecast for the week of November 20, 2017, Technical Analysis

The FTSE 100 (.FTSE) marked its second week of losses as a worldwide sell-off took the shine off risky assets, and Thursday's bounce proved to have little staying power. Corporate news drove the most attention-grabbing moves, from Sky on the blue-chip index to Carillion among small-caps.
