FTSE 100 - strong support around 6072

FX:UK100   FTSE 100 index of UK listed shares
Support - 6072, 6050, 6036.70

Resistance - 6100, 6155, 6180

Upbeat UK data did little to help FTSE             avoid/reverse losses as markets are focused on the possibility of Fed rate hike in June.

  • A break below 6072 (daily 100-SMA and 38.2% of Feb low - Apr high) would expose head and shoulder neckline level around 6050.
  • A day end closing below 6050 could open doors for a drop to 50% Fibo at 5963 levels, given the daily RSI is still away from oversold territory.
On the higher side, only a break above falling trend line would signal a temporary low has been made.
why should the UK economy be so bothered about a .25% rate hike in the U.S.
This will kill U.S. consumer recovery and IMHO mean they will have to reverse this move.
The UK on the other hand looks like it is getting the kind of recovery it needs i.e. a spending consumer based recover NOT U.S. based on the price of oil which you cant control and Health costs enforced by law of govt and increase in wages/overtime rates again enforced by govt. These factors are not data, but are govt based policies.
