Of late, the FTSE (London Times Stock Exchange) has been struggling to make new highs. When looking to the left on the daily chart, we see that lower highs and lower lows (even though minimal) are beginning to accumulate. In addition, this level appears to bring out plenty of supply (sellers). The overall trend is up, but tightening within an ascending triangle. This price action makes us sit up and take notice. A substantial move could be in the works within the next three months. The FTSE has struggled since early 2013 to clear the 2008 highs. We’d like to see this index break upward (or at minimum, hold this level) to confirm all other current global equity bull markets.  If FTSE breaks down, it will cause us to watch all other global equity markets (most notably, the US) with more scrutiny. Keep calm, curious investor.

Keep calm and carry on?
