FTSE Elliott Wave View: Extending Higher

Short term Elliottwave view in FTSE suggests that the instrument is showing a 5 swing sequence from 2/1 low (7087.67) favoring more upside. From 2/1 low, the Index is rallying as a double three Elliottwave structure where Minute wave ((w)) ended at 7329.56 and Minute wave ((x)) ended at 7192.45. Index has since broken above 7329.56, suggesting the next leg higher in Minute wave ((y)) has started. The subdivision of Minute wave ((y)) is also in a double three Elliottwave structure where Minutte wave ( w ) ended at 7394.6 and Minutte wave ( x ) ended at 7262.95. Up from there, rally is unfolding as a zigzag Elliottwave structure where Subminutte wave a ended at 7373 and Subminutte wave b ended at 7342.02. Near term, while pullbacks stay above 7262.95, and more importantly above 7192.45, expect Index to extend higher. We don't like selling the Index.
