FTSE 100 eyes 8k again on the opening

The European stock markets have just reopened for the final live trading session of the week and as suggested from the futures prices earlier, it has been a positive start to the day. The DAX is rising further above 18,100 and of course that index just loves the lower EUR/USD this morning. At the same time the lower GBP/USD today too is helping the FTSE eye that 8k level once again. It rejected it earlier this week, when it stalled at 7,999.84. It remains to be seen if it can vault this level today and perhaps set a weekly and daily close above 8k for the first time this year. Th reader is reminded that the high seen so far in 2024 has been set at 8,015 and the all time record high remains in place at 8,047. The FTSE 100 is currently trading at 7,985
