More and more signs of support and recovery are appearing in the markets, led by a double bottom in EURJPY (a sign JPY is broadly peaking not just against USD) and a bear trap washout in the India 50. Gold also appears to be levelling off while crude oil keeps base building. Meanwhile, the Hong Kong 50, Japan 225, US 30 and UK 100 continue to attract support above round numbers.
