FTSE pulling off Could 2018 trend-line bullishly up to now
The FTSE went on a late-year tear with the assistance of a typically sturdy world danger urge for food, however bumped into some hassle round stable trend-line resistance. The road in query connects the document excessive created in Could of 2018 with the 2019 excessive cast in July.
