Market Analysis 27-09-2019

The UK market action for the week has been dominated by Brexit-related headlines. The UK Supreme Court nullified the prorogation order and paved the way for the UK Parliament to resume sitting.

The week started with the troubling news of the collapse of Thomas Cook, the world’s oldest travelling agency. This news, coupled with a Monday sell-off in the shares of Rolls Royce, put the FTSE 100 on a downward spiral at the start of the week. However, the market’s response to the UK Supreme Court turned things around. The FTSE 100 is now up on the week by 128 points and could push higher if bullish news continues.

Technical Analysis for FTSE100

The outlook for the FTSE100 remains unchanged, as price candles have not recorded any big moves since the last analysis piece to negate previous outlook. In the long term, price continues to remain within the borders of the up channel, even as price is forming higher lows and lower highs. The presence of lower highs on the monthly chart indicates that the upside is limited and the uptrend may be dying out.












FTSE100 Monthly Chart

On stepping down to the weekly chart to get the medium-term perspective of the FTSE100 index, we can see that the weekly candle has pulled back up in a return move to test the lower border of the rising wedge from which it broke out. Such moves after a pattern breakout are not abnormal, especially if the move occurred on light volume.

This return move is retesting the 7360.5 medium-term resistance (highs of the weeks ended on March 18, May 13 and September 20).












FTSE100 Weekly Chart

A rejection of this return move at 7360.5 should bring the 7201.1 price level (Sep 9 low) into focus. Below this level, further support is seen at 7051.7 (lows of the weeks ended Feb 26 2018 and Feb 25 2019). A further break of 7051.7 would complete the break from the up channel, and allow price to aim for the next support at 6753.2 (low of the week ended January 28, 2019).

The downward move would be invalidated if price action pushes beyond 7360.5, in which case 7525.7 (Sep/Nov 2017, Sep 2018 and April 2019 highs) might be the natural initial target.


Within the context of the weekly chart, bulls would still be looking for a break above 7360.5 to lead the way for a push towards 7525.7 (Nov 2017 and April 2019 highs). Further upside above 7527.7 would complete the breakout from the symmetrical triangle, which targets the upper channel border at the 7888.3 price level as the next target. This would complete a bullish continuation of the symmetrical triangle, in keeping with a continuation of the uptrend of the FTSE100 from 2016.


Bears would hope for a rejection of the pullback to 7360.5, which opens the door for a run towards 7201.1 in completion of the breakout move from the rising wedge pattern seen on the daily chart. This beats a path for price to approach the lower border of the symmetrical triangle at 7093.4, with potential pit stops to be seen at 7360.5 (Nov 2017 low) and 7265.0 (Feb 2019 low) below it.

Prices to watch: 7525.7 (bulls) and 7360.5 (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.
