- No change on the equity front with bullish conditions still dominating. E-mini S&P futures targets the psychological 4000.00 handle. The EUROSTOXX50 index is firmer too and has breached 3657.83, Jan 8 high to resume the underlying uptrend. Attention is on 3700.00 and 3798.19. The latter is the 0.764 projection of the Mar - Jul - Oct 2020 price swing
- In the FX space, the USD is facing selling pressure.
- EURUSD is extending the recovery off the Friday low of 1.1952. Yesterday we highlighted the possibility that Friday's activity in pattern terms, is a bullish engulfing candle. Today has seen the pair trade through the 20-and 50-day EMAs opening 1.2156 next, Jan 29 high.
- Last week we highlighted an inverted head and shoulders in the USD Index. Note this pattern's key support lies at 90.048, Jan 21 low and the right shoulder of the pattern. A break would negate the pattern and reinforce a USD bearish risk theme.

- EURGBP remains bearish and targets 0.8711, May 11, 2020 low.

- In the FI space, Bunds (H1) have found support at 175.61, 1.236 projection of Jan the 4 - 12 sell-off from the Jan 27 high. This is the bear trigger.
