Regency Risk Barometer Snapshot

With the cash market closed yesterday, the FTSE futures attempted to broke above key resistance at 6,800, but this breakout could not be maintained and the prices closed back below resistance.

We’ve seen the same false breakout price action overnight and today will prove pivotal in determining whether the 6,800 barrier can finally be broken.
