The FTSE 100 closed down 0.75 per cent at 7,095 points as the seasonally weaker September period kicks in. A dip this month does bode well for a stronger year end though.

Andrew Bailey has begged 2m sidelined workers to return to the jobs market as he warned that severe staff shortages are holding back Britain’s economic revival.

Britain needs millions of people to come back to the workforce to fill huge vacancies created since society reopened, the Bank of England Governor said.

FTSE 100 live outlook prediction analysis for 9th September 2021

Overnight we have dropped further off that red coral resistance line to test the first support here at 7039 where we have the key fib level. We could see an initial bounce off this level though the bears are still in control as we are now in the seasonally weaker, and more volatile, September period. A drop this month though and into early October sets us up for a decent bounce towards the end of the year.

The ASX200 had a shocker today sliding steadily all day, and with the negative backdrop on the news front we could well see some further declines play out on the FTSE100 during today. However, we have dipped below the 10 day Raff overnight so a snap back up initially to retest yesterdays closing level and test the daily pivot would make sense.

The S&P looks to be on course for a slide down to the 4450 level where we have the bottom of the 20 day Raff channel , and probably tying in with the bottom of the FTSE100 20 day channel at the 6960 level.

If we do get an initial kick up to the pivot and the bulls were to keep the momentum, then the 7125 – 7135 area is the next key resistance as we have the 200ema 30m here, along with it being the level we dropped off after the bounce yesterday. 7121 is the HullMA on the 2h chart as well.  The 7135 is also the key fib resistance for today. 7149 is then the 2h coral (now red showing a downtrend) and should cap any climb in the short term.

For the bears, if they were to break below the 7040 level then the obvious target is the round number 7000 but we have S2 just above this at 7018. Ultimately I wouldn’t be surprised if we see the 6960 area sometime soon though. Bit of reality kicking in at the moment thats for sure as the news flow and general sentiment  turns pessimistic.

So, looking at an initial kick up today then a further slide later on. Good luck today.
