FTSE 100 | Break Downs Key Support

The FTSE 100 is back in the middle of its range following a sharp sell-off to close out the week. A firm break below the 200DMA (7377) raises downside risks for the index with eyes on key support at 7210, which marks the trendline stemming from the 2018 low. A tough level to break and one where we would expect some selling pressure to ease up. That said a downside break raises scope for a test of the low 7100s.

S&P 500 | At Risk of Further Set-backs

The S&P 500 has fallen out of its rising channel, which in turn has raised the risk of further set-backs in the index. Near-term support zone is situated at 3225-40, which could see selling abate somewhat, however, a break below puts focus on 3180 (Jan 8th). The outlook remains cautious given the continued uncertainty regarding the spread of the Coronavirus.
