Regency Risk Barometer Snapshot

The FTSE continues to respect resistance at 7,235 – closing just below it yesterday as the market tread water within Monday’s range to form an ‘inside day’ pattern.

Monday’s range now becomes pivotal in determining our directional bias…

A break below Monday’s range would signal a failure at resistance and could trigger a deeper sell-off, whereas a break and hold above Monday’s range should spark a new trend leg higher.
