The UK markets open higher this morning

The UK markets continued to consolidate yesterday but recover this morning, with the FTSE 250 rallying to test the top of the range at 16,000.

Stock Action
We highlight BTG as a possible profit take as it features on our Key Day Reversal signal scanner, failing to make new highs while appearing overextended to the upside. We note support at 755 and 730 for re-buying opportunities.

We highlight Victrex as it confirms its medium term price and relative bases with a breakout to new short term highs.

Portfolio Update
We close our long position in United Business Media as it encounters medium term price and relative downtrends at its 200-day MA and begins to unwind from overbought.

We highlight our short position in GlaxoSmithKline as it also encounters medium term price and relative downtrends at 1,500 and the 200-day MA.

Chart of the day: LRD
We highlight Laird Group as it reasserts medium term price and relative uptrends.
