FTSE 100 Outlook: Risk Sentiment Sours, FTSE 100 Eyes Support


Risk sentiment continues to sour with the FTSE 100 also under pressure as the index breaks below 7300. I mentioned previously that around the recent range top (7600-50) had been a good area to look for a pullback in the index, particularly as China slowdown risks had been picking up. This had also been reflected in the move higher in USD/CNH, which is now firmly above the 2022 highs despite Beijing’s attempt to pushback back against Yuan weakness. As such, with the FTSE 100 more exposed to China relative to its counterparts given commodity-intensive companies within the index, further softness in the Yuan will continue to weigh on the FTSE.

On the technical front, near-term support is situated at 7220 with a closing break below opening up the doors towards 7000. Meanwhile, on the topside, resistance is situated at 7400 (200DMA)

    • Why is this stock unavailable to open for non-Pro clients? Surely a fund is less risky than an individual stock.
    • Hi @Kgrp74 Thank you for reaching out.  HMRC rules don't allow you to hold foreign currency in an ISA, but you can still buy international shares. The gains on currency conversions are only seen and credited in the account once you sell the shares if the currency rate is favorable to you. We also have to consider the 0.5% spread added to the exchange rate and commission charges which would normally offset your profits.  Thanks, OfentseIG
    • DAX/CAC Technical Highlights: DAX reclaimed broken support, but rally still not viewed as bullish CAC 40 has trend-line resistance ahead to watch on further strength   DAX and CAC 40 Technical Outlook: Rally Viewed as Likely to Fail Soon   DAX Daily Chart   DAX Chart by TradingView   The CAC is trading around resistance in the 6k area, with a trend-line from the summer high lying not too far ahead. A turn down could find some initial support in the 5700s, but the low at 5628 is the big level to watch. Broad outlook is of course very similar to the DAX.   CAC Daily Chart   CAC 40 Chart by TradingView   Oct 6, 2022 | DailyFX Paul Robinson, Strategist
