FTSE 100 pressures 6700


The FTSE 100 index extended its rally from the March/April floor near 6500 on Thursday.  The market has pushed up to supply from the May-July trading band.  That congestion zone starts near the lateral region along 6700, and may hinder further progress towards the highs evident in the 6800-6900 area.

In the meantime, the FTSE 250 passed both the 50 and 200-day moving averages.  The market is about to challenge the late-July barrier around 15800.

Stock Action


Aveva Group has generated a bullish P&F Breakout signal on the automated scanner.  This follows Thursday's move through 2050.  Former support at the April floor near 1900 has produced a rebound to break the short-term downtrend.  One would expect to see a further recovery, possibly towards the 2300 region.

Mucklow also appears on the list of 'Bull' P&F Breakouts, with the signal price at 460.  This one-year Bar chart shows the stock bouncing from support near 440 to probe resistance at the highs of the medium-term range (base?), in that 460 area.  Note this is a sideways region running across the page.

Portfolio Update


Mitchells & Butlers has extended its recovery to break downtrend resistance as delineated by the 50-day moving average.  The late-June/early-July barrier at the lateral region near 400 has also yielded.  Next chart resistance is in the 430 area.  The stop on the long is raised to 365.


The stop on the short trade held in International Personal Finance is also adjusted; lowered to 600.  The stock holds the downtrend from the June high.

A long is opened in Domino's Pizza, see Chart of the Day below.


Chart of the day: Base breakout by Domino's Pizza


Domino's Pizza UK & Irl has finally broken out of the base formation that has been forming above the late-2013 floor at 462.5.  That pattern seems capable of sustaining additional gains towards last September's ceiling near 625, and potentially the 2013 peak area around 700.

We have followed the bullish P&F Breakout signal at 580.  The stop is placed just beneath mid-range support (note this formed near both the 50 and 200-day MAs), at 525, for now.
