    EuroSTOXX 50 Future ($FESX_F) Re-energizes Bull Theme; Targets 3175/85

    European benchmark average bullish shift through 3134
    • We stated in our last client report that “the bias into Tuesday and midweek is for a push up to challenge 3134, with a break here becoming more likely” and the push above here highlights a shift to a more bullish tone again.
    • Above 3134 now aims up to modest resistance at 3148, but with real risk this week back to challenge the 3175 cycle high and key long-term retrace target at 3185.
    • Overshoot risk, more likely into May, will be to 3200 and then Fibo targets at 3219 and 3233.
    • The 8-day RSI is positive, but not OB, leaving scope to go still higher this week
    • Below 3098 eases bull risks; through 3054 signals a neutral tone, only shifting negative below 3007

    Dutch housing prices dropped 0.3% m/m in March following a flat reading in February. The annual change in house prices was -2.1% vs. -1.7% a month earlier. Despite the decline in March, there are signs of stabilisation following a couple of years of large declines in house prices. Having said that, house prices also appeared to stabilise in late 2010 / early 2011.

    Demand is ever present but as you say supply side is the crux for a steady increase in valuations. Thx for the additional charts.

    Of 72 economists polled, none see economy contracting this year

    If you’re comforted by the wisdom of crowds, then it’s probably good news that a National Association for Business Economics survey of 72 economists didn’t find a single respondent who thinks the U.S. economy will contract this year, the fourth-consecutive survey where that’s been the case. Alternatively, it could be evidence of groupthink in either mentality or forecasting model.
    The NABE polls its members quarterly, and most — like on Wall Street — expect the economy to grow between 2.1% and 3% this year. Six percent see the economy rising between 0.1% and 1%, 14% see it between 1.1% and 2%, 72% see it between 2.1% and 3%, and 8% see it growing between 3.1% and 4%.
