FTSE 100 ANALYSIS AND NEWS

  • FTSE 100 Testing 7300 Amid Greenlight for BoE Dec Hike.
  • IG Sentiment Changes Signal FTSE 100 to Reverse Lower.

FTSE 100 prediction: Where the United Kingdom's market will reach in the  coming years?

FTSE 100: Modest underperformance in the FTSE 100 following the latest UK inflation data and given yesterday’s labour market report, which provided initial details of the furlough expiration impact. This provides the green light for a BoE rate rise of 15bps next month. However, there remains a risk of a hawkish disappointment amid the aggressive tightening cycle priced in for 2022 and thus leaves UK Banking stocks at risk of a pullback. Elsewhere, softer oil prices have also played their part in weighing on the FTSE 100, which now tests psychological support at 7300, with the 20DMA slightly below at 7282. Should the index close below ST moving average, risks are for an extended move towards 7200. That being said, the path of least resistance remains higher, with another test of the trendline stemming from the all-time high.

IG CLIENT SENTIMENT: FTSE 100 MAY SOON REVERSE LOWER

Data shows 47.39% of traders are net-long with the ratio of traders short to long at 1.11 to 1. The number of traders net-long is 18.77% higher than yesterday and 11.21% higher from last week, while the number of traders net-short is 12.42% lower than yesterday and 6.36% lower from last week.

We typically take a contrarian view to crowd sentiment, and the fact traders are net-short suggests FTSE 100 prices may continue to rise.

Yet traders are less net-short than yesterday and compared with last week. Recent changes in sentiment warn that the current FTSE 100 price trend may soon reverse lower despite the fact traders.

    • The #meme hype surrounding #Solana may have slowed down with the emergence of the Ton network, but it seems that the enthusiasm for Solana is not fading away entirely. While new networks like Ton are gaining attention, Solana has previously generated significant interest and wealth for investors. However, there are concerns about scammers exploiting the Solana network with various honeypot and rugpull schemes, leading some traders to explore other chains like Base and Ton. Despite the rise of Ton blockchain, a new Solana meme project associated with Pepe the Frog has started to gain traction. One such project, LandWolf, has already amassed over 5,000 active Telegram members and 5,000 Twitter followers, indicating early interest and community engagement. The project aims to unite Pepe fans with the broader crypto community, offering a unique value proposition. LandWolf's ability to secure listings on top-tier exchanges like Bitget showcases the developer's influence and the project's potential. Some enthusiasts have already dubbed $WOLF as the biggest meme coin on Solana, highlighting the ongoing interest and excitement within the Solana ecosystem.
    • Meme coins are cryptocurrencies inspired by internet jokes, like Dogecoin. They're inherently risky due to their extreme price swings. While some meme coins remain purely for fun, others are trying to develop actual uses in gaming or finance. These high-risk, high-reward investments often attract "degenerates" (or "degens") who chase quick profits by jumping into unproven projects without much research.   The potential for massive returns with meme coins can't be ignored, however. Dogecoin's 9800% surge in 2021 exemplifies this. A $100 investment could have turned into a life-changing $9800. This experience highlights the potential regret of focusing solely on "safe" investments with lower potential returns.   Taking inspiration from this, some experienced investors are now allocating a small portion of their portfolio to latest meme coins.one of the latest is Miggles listed on Bitget. This strategy allows them to potentially benefit from future bull runs while limiting their overall risk.
