  • SUP 4: 130.00 Psychological round number

The trend condition in BTP futures remains bearish. Fresh cycle lows last week confirmed a continuation of the broader bearish price sequence of lower lows and lower highs, that defines a downtrend. Moving average studies are in a bear mode too. The focus is on the 130.00 handle next and key trend resistance is unchanged at 138.68, the Mar 31 high. The 20-day EMA, at 134.48, marks the initial firm resistance.
