Where will the FTSE Index bottom, or has it already....

TVC:UKX   UK 100 Index
We have just experienced the largest market sell-off in history, just few weeks ago it was difficult to see where price would find some support - especially when market circuit breakers where triggering left, right and centre. As we're in the midst of the largest global health/economic crisis for at least the past 100 years, its clear the aftermath ripples of COVID-19 will influence some aspect of our daily lives for a long time...At this point it looks like we are headed for The Great Depression 2.0.

However, recently market sell-offs appear to have slowed down, as it looks like price has possibly found a little support. But in a general downtrend, its completely normal for market movement to slow down multiple times, even have a some small rallies to the upside before continuing to lower levels. The FTSE 100 seems to have found support at c.4,900 level, however if it doesn't hold above this level, then it's highly likely that we are headed towards the c.3,500 area - bringing us back to the bottom of the last financial crisis. If the market does play out in this way, then there will be some epic shorting opportunities ahead.

In the meantime stay safe readers, and I would like to leave you with the below thoughts from our good friend, which summarises the good old days (pre COVID-19) perfectly.....

"We're the middle children of history, man. No purpose or place. We have no Great War. No Great Depression. Our Great War's a spiritual war... our Great Depression is our lives. We've all been raised on television to believe that one day we'd all be millionaires, and movie gods, and rock stars. But we won't. And we're slowly learning that fact. And we're very, very pissed off" - Tyler Durden
