    European equity markets stay strong

    The major European equity markets went into the Easter holiday season positing new cycle and 2019 highs.
    This price action reinforces both short- and intermediate-term bull trends, as markets enter a very busy week for earning reports.
    With the second quarter earnings season thus far proving broadly positive for global companies and therefore the wider markets, we see the skewed risk for further upside progress into late April and likely on into May.

    In the link, we focus on the outlooks for major European benchmarks, the pan-European EURO STOXX 50, the UK flagship index the FTSE 100 and the German yardstick, the DAX.

    European equity markets head North

    A solid advance by the major European (and in fact global) equity markets over the past 24 hours, building on the renewal of risk appetite over the past week as global equity markets have entered earnings season.
    Moreover, this more recent positive tone has built on the intermediate-term bullish trends from late 2018 through Q1 2019, assisted by solid consolidation phases seen in March and more recently in early April.
    This activity leaves risks for still further gains as markets continue to overcome resistance levels from last year (with US averages eyeing all-time highs).
    A more recent negative tone for GBPUSD has assisted in pushing the UK benchmark equity average, the FTSE 100, higher.
    Whilst an improvement in German economic data over the past week has allowed for a robust advance by the German flagship index, the DAX.

    FTSE 100 stays strong, with another new high for the year

    Global equity markets remain extremely strong with global economic data continuing to improve, particularly from China in early April.
    Furthermore, positive sounding ion the US-Sino trade negotiations have helped share markets higher to start the second quarter.
    This has built on the extremely strong start to the year, with the first quarter yielding extremely strong performances by global stock indices

    Here we look at the UK benchmark stock average, the FTSE 100: https://www.fxexplained.co.uk/forex-articles/current-market-analysis/ftse-100-stays-strong-with-another-new-high-for-the-year/
