The BTP futures trend condition is unchanged and remains bearish. The reversal from 116.71, the Oct 4 high, signals the end of a corrective phase between Sep 28 - Oct 4. A continuation lower would open the key support and bear trigger at 108.13, the Sep 28 low. A break of this level would confirm a resumption of the broader downtrend and maintain the bearish price sequence of lower lows and lower highs. 116.71 marks the key resistance.
