The FTSE downtrend has started. The American markets will follow suit, no doubt, when they open later today.

For 3 years the FTSE100 has kept above Support Line C. It has now crashed through that support, indicating that a downtrend is under way. The last FTSE Bear-market lasted from October 2007 to February 2009. The present one may be swifter than that, being, perhaps, a response to expectations of increased interest rates rather than economic recession.
