Bobl futures maintain a weaker tone following the reversal lower from 118.670, the Feb 2 high. Key short-term support at 117.020, the Jan 30 low, has opened further losses for the contract and on Tuesday took out 116.405, a Fibonacci retracement. Vol-band based support at 115.721 is next up, ahead of the early January lows. On the upside, the resistance to watch is at 117.725, the 50-day EMA. A break above this average would ease bearish pressure.
