Short-term Elliott wave view in FTSE suggests that the pullback to 19 July 2021 low (6812.84) ended wave (4). Up from there, the index is nesting higher as an impulse sequence within wave (5) favoring more upside extension to take place. While the initial bounce to 6929.89 high ended wave ((i)), wave ((ii)) pullback ended at 6827.26 low, wave ((iii)) completed in lesser degree 5 waves at 7018.95 high. Wave ((iv)) ended at 6956.24 low, wave ((v)) ended at 7033.27 high thus completed wave 1.
Down from there, the index made a pullback in wave 2 to correct the cycle from 7/19/2021 low. The internals of that pullback unfolded as Elliott wave flat structure where wave ((a)) ended at 6980.67 low. Wave ((b)) ended at 7038.65 high and wave ((c)) ended at 6929.64 low. Above from there, the index started the next leg higher in wave 3 and ended lesser degree wave ((i)) at 7093.93 high. Then wave ((ii)) pullback ended at 6996.93 low and resume the rally higher again.
Whereas lesser degree wave (i) ended at 7142.54 low, wave (ii) ended at 7089.74 low. Near-term, as far as dips remain above 7089.74 low and more importantly above 6812.84 low then FTSE is expected to extend higher in lesser degree wave (iii) towards 7236.10- 7326.35 area higher before entering into a wave (iv) pullback. We don’t recommend selling and expect dips to find support in 3, 7, or 11 swings for further upside.
