Gilt futures saw decent intraday buying Wednesday, pushing the high watermark up to 130.72 before prices faded, with markets ensuring a bearish weekly close. Nonetheless, there remains a bullish outlook which has dominated since the break of 129.92, Jul 8 high. The move above this level confirmed a resumption of the uptrend from mid-May and maintains a bullish price sequence of higher highs and higher lows. The focus shifts to the 130.88 200-dma. Watch support at 128.54, low Jul 14.
