FTSE 100 surge leads European stock averages higher

Intermediate
  • A positive follow through for the UK benchmark averages on Monday, as the FTSE 100 led the European equity indices higher (see the UK FTSE 100 Index Chart, the German DAX Index chart and the Euro STOXX 50 Index chart and commentary)
  • This has reflected a positive follow-through for the UK market after last week’s election result, which saw the Conservative party secure an 80-seat majority.
  • This has buoyed both UK and global markets as it has created stability, alongside likely ensuring a more orderly Brexit process.
  • European stock averages, the German DAX and the pan-European share yardstick, the Euro STOXX 50 have also benefited, pushing back close to and through recent, multi-month cycle highs respectively.

FTSE 100: Intermediate-term bullish shift

A very aggressive advance Monday through key 7442 and then further multiple resistances up to 7555, for an intermediate-term bullish shift and to keep risks still higher for Tuesday.

  • We see an upside bias for 7555 break here aims for 7577 and 7597.5/7600, maybe 7631 and key 7666.
  • But below 7500/7495 opens risk down to 7443, maybe 7403/00.

Intermediate-term outlook

A mid-December surge through the key 7442 peak signalled an intermediate-term bullish shift.

Upside risks: We see an upside risk for and 7666 and 7750.

What changes this? Below 7194 shifts the intermediate-term outlook to neutral and below 7129.5 to an intermediate-term bear theme.
