Market Analysis: 01-11-19

All the Brexit-related action on the political front did not really translate into anything major for the FTSE100 this week. Last week’s bullish momentum was not sustained, as bears took over in a week that has seen more selling than buying.

As at the time of writing, the FTSE100 futures are trading 67.9 points lower this week. The selloff for the week is led by companies such as NMC Health PLC, which saw 17.31% of its share price wiped off by profit taking. Making up the losers chart also are Kingfisher, which has so far lost 5.65% on its share price, and Royal Bank of Scotland Group which shed 8.56%. Prudential has lost 4.91% this week, while Lloyd’s Banking Group has shed 4.45%. Others are Coca Cola (2.61%), Centrica Plc (2.75%) and BT Group PLC (2.77%).

The FTSE 100’s big gainers for the week have been Fresnillo (8.23%), BAE Systems PLC (7.31%), Intertek Group PLC (7.18%), AVEVA Group PLC (6.68%), Scottish Mortgage Investment Trust (6.67%), Burberry Group (5.64%), GlaxoSmithKline PLC (5.91%), Centrica Plc (5.59), BP (4.45), Sage Group PLC (3.57%) and Standard Chartered PLC which added 3.48%.

Technical Outlook for FTSE100

Trade volumes on the FTSE100 picked up this week once it became clear that Brexit would get an extension; a situation which the markets accepted in a consolatory fashion as it has reduced the odds of a no-deal Brexit.

The most recent price action on the monthly chart continues to trend upwards, but is caged within the up channel. The monthly candle for the FTSE100 has closed lower, which takes it close to the channel’s trendline (lower border).












FTSE100 Monthly Chart

The initial bearish bias on the FTSE100 monthly chart has mostly been counteracted by optimism around Brexit, which has helped push the monthly candle off its lows.

The medium-term outlook is presented on the weekly chart. This chart shows that price has not made much progress beyond the range of last week’s candle. Price continues to trade within the up channel identified on the monthly chart and also within a horizontal range defined by the most recent weekly candles.

The floor of this range intersects the channel’s trendline at 7127.2, while the range ceiling is found at 7420.2. Price is still located somewhere in the centre of this range, and tomorrow’s trading session will determine whether it will move towards the upper or lower barrier of the range.












FTSE100 Weekly Chart: October 25, 2019

There needs to be a conclusive close of the weekly candle by a 3% penetration to confirm the breakout, which would see price aiming for the horizontal resistance at 7360.5. The weekly candle has effectively pushed through the previous horizontal resistance at 7201.1 (highs of August 22 and October 9). Barring any last minute selloffs, it is safe to say that this level has been broken effectively. This action converts the 7201.1 level into a support as per role reversal.

The daily chart confirms the outlook on the weekly chart. This week’s price action is revealed more clearly, indicating that the FTSE100 is well on its way to completing a 5-day winning streak, barring any last-minute selloffs on Friday.

Outlook for FTSE 100

In terms of price activity for the month of October, the FTSE100 continues to trade in the channel band on the monthly chart, but has basically range traded on the weekly and daily charts, pointing towards medium-term and near-term indecision.

Within the context of the up channel on the weekly chart, price action needs to trade above 7420.2 and 7527.7 (highs of the weekly candles of March 18 as well as May 6, 13 and 20) in order to gain access to the channel’s return line (upper border). These two price levels therefore remain the upside targets. A break of 7420.2 therefore targets 7527.7 in the medium-term.

On the flip side, a downside break of 7127.2 will violate both the floor of the range and the channel’s trendline, which sets up a channel breakdown scenario. In that situation, there must be a double candle close or a 3% penetration to the downside to confirm such a break. This then opens the door to the 7006.3 price level (previous lows of the weekly candles of August 19 and August 26).


For bulls, the price to watch for is 7240.2, a break of which opens the door for further upside to 7527.7 and beyond.


Bears would hope for a price dip below 7127.2 which would signal the breakdown of the channel and further downside to 7006.3 and 6739.0.

Prices to watch: 7240.2 (bulls) and 7127.2.5 (bears).

since signing up for Accendo I have had two traders, Mark and Sam. I have found both of these to be very informative about how CFD's work and they have made it very easy for me. Since working with Sam (last four months) my trading knowledge has improved and I can make more informative decisions about which Company's to invest with. Keep up the good work Sam.

Since I have been trading with Accendo Markets I have experienced much greater success than has been my experience with other trading companies mainly due to the help given by, what I consider to be my terminal with the trading floor, Mark, who has been most helpful in reminding me of the progress of my positions throughout the day and keeping me in touch with those positions so that I can more easily make successful trades when appropriate instead of missing out on opportunities through lack of attention. He draws my attention to the situations and enables me to make profitable trades. I am very happy with the situation at the moment and am enjoying the experience. Thomas Irving.

I have been trading with Accendo Markets and James Abbott my account manager for coming on 5 years now, James Abbott the senior trader of Accendo Markets provides me with up to minute information when I need it and find him very easy and professional to deal with. Whenever I need to trade or am not sure about anything James is always their to help with any queries I may have. The Accendo Platform I find very easy to use and navigate although it has been slightly changed over the years but definitely for the better. Personal when I do trade 90% of the time, I rather telephone call to place my trade dealings and if James is not there to take my call I find others at Accendo like Sam, Lee take my trades and are. All in all everyone at Accendo Markets are amazing to deal with and my relationship with Accendo is just as I like it. Peter Petrou

I have been with Accendo for a long time now, ten or twelve year's, probably more . As I told Sam (my trader) I thought that CFDs were better than sex . I stopped trading for a few years and only started back about a couple of months ago. But it is as if I had never been gone , so to speak. Sam has helped me every step of the way, at my age one forgets things. I have only praise for Accendo and as far as I am concerned the platform is the best . Now I am back trading at 71 years of age, I might even try sex again. Brian Robertson.

I understand how to make a profit with CFDs. I am restricted by the range of companies I have knowledge of. Although, I am not sure that is a big problem. Tom Robertson is a very fine man.

Well, I would not be trading without the help of my trader, Sam Alnakkash. He provided a really great overview of Accendo Markets, an insight into trading in general and how to get started in trading online. His advice, support and training has been fantastic all along the way, enabling me to start trading earlier than I would have done had I not had the support. He has also been very adept at understanding me as a client in order to help me achieve my trading goals. I still have a lot to learn and hope I will get there.

I like the updates on shares I trade. Updates from Bloomberg and Reuters plus industry updates and breaking news. I've had Matt Grice and James Abbott and found both to be excellent. I would like to continue a personal service with James. He understands how and which stocks I trade.
