  • SUP 4: 148.20 61.8% retracement of the Feb 26 - Mar 11 rally

BTP futures traded higher again yesterday as the recovery from 148.36, Mar 18 low extends. Resistance is at 150.39, Mar 11 high with a pivotal level at 150.69, 76.4% of the Feb 12 - 26 sell-off. The recent focus has been on the likelihood of a bearish theme and while resistance remains intact, the S/T risk still appears skewed to the downside. A breach of 148.36 would reinforce this theme. On the upside, clearance of 150.39 would however instead be bullish.
