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)

    • I think his partnership with Bitget is actually a success considering considering he also won 2 ballon d'or  and Bitget has continuously grown I the process. I feel more 20 million registered users in 5 years since inception is unprecedented. 
    • That's a wise call and it's important to also confirm that the exchange of your chosen should be in compliance and perhaps licensed in your country. 
    • Investing in crypto could be challenging especially the Fear of Missing out Lambo. This mostly affect traders trading strategy and ideology. Predicting the right time to buy is always cumbersome and that is why many analyst advise DCA because it curtails FOMO and gives you a long-term crypto trading mentality. In crypto Dollar Cost Averaging involves investing the same amount of money in a target token at regular intervals over a certain period of time, regardless of price. This will help to control volatility on your portfolios and minimize FOMO For example when you decide to invest $100 on a token and invest $10 daily or weekly or monthly till you fulfilled you $100 target investment on the token irrespective of the price of the token. This strategy helps a crypto trader to build his portfolio over the long term thereby he/she is not bothered by short-term volatility in the broader markets. This strategy mostly favours low-budget traders in building a strong portfolio but the problem most normally encounter is exchange minimum trading amount. One analyst advised on how to mitigate this was to accumulate on exchange that has lower trading fees and later send to where you desire to hold. He also noted that some of this exchanges are good in listing good projects for you to be among the early birds. Do you think DCA is the best method to accumulate token and which exchange offers the lowest tradeable balance and trading fees?
