FTSE 100 Technical Analysis: Big Inflection Point Created at Support

The FTSE 100 has recently fallen with a lot of momentum, but that came to a pause yesterday with a powerful reversal candle forming. The forming of the candle is one thing, but where it occurred at is another.

There is strong confluent support around 6870/6780, created by the rising trend-line off the March 2020 low and several intermediate-term turning points created since a peak created in January 2021. There were three instances of a low within a 10 handle range of one another.

These were carved out in May, July, and September last year. The multiple turning points on this horizontal line give it a lot of weight as a support level the market should respect. Couple it with a trend-line and proper price action, and you have a line-in-the-sand.

Not saying it will hold for a long time, as we have seen given the nature of this market cycle’s catalyst – a highly unpredictable situation – that exhaustion moves can become even more exhausted. But for now as long as Monday’s low at 6787 holds on a closing basis, then the outlook is neutral to bullish.

We may only see a bounce ensue before more selling occurs, hard to say at this juncture how much the market can rally. If we see a close develop below yesterday’s low, then we will need to respect the fact that a big level of support was broken and run with a bearish bias.

    • In the wake of a brewing conflict between the Nigerian government and Binance, cryptocurrency enthusiasts find themselves on edge, uncertain about the future of their digital investments. Rumors abound that Binance, along with other platforms, might be exacerbating the Naira's devaluation against the dollar, prompting the government to take a hard stance against the exchange. Despite longstanding allegations of wrongdoing, recent events have propelled the government to escalate its actions. The situation has escalated dramatically, with Binance's P2P platform disabled and a staggering $10 billion fine imposed for alleged illegal activities. This punitive measure, coupled with last year's $4.3 billion fine by the SEC, underscores the gravity of the situation. However, skepticism lingers regarding the astronomical sum demanded by the Nigerian government. While Binance has faced regulatory challenges in other jurisdictions, its resilience and market dominance have largely endured. Yet, the potential ramifications of losing access to a key crypto market like Nigeria cannot be ignored. Complicating matters further, the Nigerian House of Representatives has summoned Binance CEO Richard Teng, issuing a seven-day ultimatum for him to address allegations of terrorist financing and money laundering, among other charges. This development casts a shadow over the future prospects of Binance in the country. Amidst the uncertainty surrounding Binance's operations in Nigeria, users are scrambling to identify alternative platforms. While other centralized exchanges (CEX) remain operational within the country, the pressing question remains: which platform will emerge as the most dependable alternative should the situation worsen? https://punchng.com/reps-summon-binance-boss-over-alleged-terrorism-financing/
    • 2024 has been a good year for crypto traders with signs of a bullish market prevailing. For the first time in 3 years, we are witnessing BTC set a new ATH repeatedly. If you endured the prolonged bear market of the previous years, you deserve these gigantic green candles! In addition to BTC's incredible run, several alts have broken out nicely; Ai, memecoin, GameFi projects and so on have spiked. Most notably in the month of February is the run of CEX tokens. According to Foresight News, centralized exchange tokens boast of a widespread price spike in February, based on data from ICO Analytics. Standing tall amongst many is BGB with 62% increase, while ASD, BNB, and KCS witnessed gains of 45%, 33%, and 22% respectively. As a BGB holder myself who’s been holding since June 2023 at an average price of $0.45, it’s been an incredible journey. I’ve witnessed it smash its ATH over again, the latest coming in February when BGB set a new ATH of $1.15. Aside the juicy ROI, BGB usecases have been a flex for me, granting me access to exclusive events, like Launchpads where I’ve also managed mouth-watering gains from my participations. BNB had a remarkable run in the last bull cycle, sadly I missed out having sold mine for peanuts. If you said I’m stoked to right my wrong with BGB this time, you wouldn’t be far from the truth!  Which CEX token(s) are you keenly observing?
