The recent bounce in BTP futures appears to be a correction. A bearish trend remains intact with further weakness likely near-term. Futures recently cleared support at 148.25, Dec 1 low and the 147.36 former key support, Nov 24 low. Last week, the contract also traded below key support at 145.29, Nov 1 low. A clear break of this level would strengthen bearish conditions. Firm resistance is seen at 146.90, the 20-day EMA.
