|UK stock market overview|
Figures showing a manufacturing slowdown in the Eurozone, UK and China
capped gains in stocks on Monday, as did the ongoing geopolitical
tensions in Ukraine.
Investors also chose to adopt a cautious approach in the absence of a
trading session in the States, with Wall Street closed fora public holiday.
Meanwhile, risk appetite was also limited ahead of a busy week for financial
markets worldwide. London's FTSE 100 finished the session 0.08% higher at 6,825.31.
The FTSE fell initially during the session on Monday, but found enough support at the 6800 level to bounce and form a hammer.
Because of that, it appears of the FTSE is ready to go higher, and ultimately
should continue the uptrend However, the 6900 level above is very resistive, and
it is going to take quite a bit of effort to get above there.
