  • Bunds continue to move relentlessly off their highs. This morning after media reports that the UK was likely to enact its Plan B for Covid-19 as soon as tomorrow, Bund futures hit a high of 175.02. This was above the 174.89 high of December 3, but coincided with the 1.382 projection of the Nov 11-22 price swing.
