And the rest have a go as well.

  • FTSE -0.4%
  • Cac -0.7%
  • Dax -0.3%
  • Ibex -1.6%
  • FTSE Mib -1.8%

European bonds

  • Italy 2.95% +3bp
  • Spain 2.92% +3bp
  • Portugal 3.54% +8bp
  • Germany 1.45% flat

It stands to reason that bond yields have given back some of the gains made yesterday and I can’t help thinking were in ‘treading water’ mode in stocks. I know some of you have been looking at the S&P but looking at a couple of European charts it’s looking like there’s some good short setups forming.

There’s some scope for shorts against those upper levels and I particularly like the FTSE chart. It might be a bit ‘dick for a tick-ish’ but I like the look of a sell at the FTSE highs around 6880. I’m going to leave it until Monday then might scale in shorts.
