Regency Risk Barometer Snapshot

Yesterday’s price action saw the FTSE reject higher prices and break decisively lower – closing just below the short-term ascending trendline.

Yesterday’s range eclipsed that of the previous three sessions – forming a bearish engulfing pattern. We would now expect to see the market retest key support at 7,405.
