FTSE 100 Forecast for the Week

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.


FTSE 100 Forecast for the Week

Source: Refinitiv


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.

    • In the previous year, #bullrun2024 had been a trending hashtag as most crypto enthusiasts continually drooled over the prospects of witnessing another bull cycle. 2024 is finally here and so far so good has produced only fireworks. BTC has soared to 60k+, the market is green, and there’s a general sense that the bulls are returning. If there’s one thing that pays most in such bullish market, it is the flair to spot early gems and position oneself before a breakout. In that regard, Bitget has been my plug for a few years running. The early listing of $ORDI last year for instance before Binance listing 7 months after, and a surge ultimately is well documented. This year alone, Bitget has continued its wealth creation for users nicely, coins like $PORTAL, $GPT, $GTAI and so on have gone on to print for investors as depicted in the picture below. Web3 rewards not just active participation, but strategic positioning. There’s no gainsaying that the key to securing insane profits in this market is by positioning early and strategically too. Bitget’s eagle-eye for spotting early gem is a flex. Numbers don’t lie.  
    • Portal itself is awesome. Those who haven't got any airdrop, I think it's best time to accumulate for them.. tho, I'm gonna DCA....
    • Nope the hype is worth it. The project is dope itself as well as the team. Already deposited my bag at Bitget... Let's hope for the best 🤞
