FTSE trading around Sept low, Feb ’16 trend-line

Yesterday, the FTSE extended the sell-off into a critical area of support. A break of the September low took shape, but a reversal higher managed to keep price above on a closing basis. The smallish key-reversal also came at the February 2016 trend-line.

The last time we saw the market decline sharply and reverse (last month), we saw a sharp move higher. Whether such an aggressive move can develop this time or not is of course to be seen. The reversal day at support coupled with the fact the footsie is oversold in the near-term should be enough to tilt the market higher for a recovery bounce, at the least.
