The FTSE 100 overcame resistance at its December 1999 high of 6950, closing the week above 7000 for the first time. Expect retracement to test the new support level, but breakout signals a primary advance with a long-term target of 8000*. A 21-day Twiggs Money Flow trough above zero confirms long-term buying pressure.
* Target calculation: 7000 + ( 7000 – 6000 ) = 8000
Germany’s DAX recovered above 12000, suggesting continuation of the advance. Expect resistance at the Deutsche Bank target of 12500 (from late 2014). Rising 21-day Twiggs Money Flow indicates strong buying pressure. Reversal below 11800 is unlikely at this stage, but would warn of a correction.
* Target calculation: 12200 + ( 12200 – 11900 ) = 12500
Strong advances on these two indices suggest a broader European recovery.
