    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/

    European averages join US indices with bullish extensions

    In yesterday’s report here we highlighted that the main US equity indices have produced aggressive rallies back higher this week, with both the Nasdaq 100 and S&P 500 hitting new highs for 2019.
    This has been driven by solid US macroeconomic data and an easing of global growth concerns, as the UK has moved away from a No Deal Brexit scenario with the recent votes in the UK Parliament.
    Over the past 24 hours, other European stock indices have played a technical catch up, with some of the major European stock averages also now achieving new highs for 2019.
    Here we focus on the broad European benchmark average, the EURO STOXX 50 and the UK yardstick, the FTSE 100.

    FTSE 100 stays firm, aided by a weakened Pound

    In our report here yesterday (Wednesday 14th February), we highlighted downside risks for the Pound into another Brexit vote, with a technical trigger for GBPUSD below the key 1.2831/29 support
    The GBPUSD plunge through here alongside broader Pound weakness is often a positive for the UK benchmark index, the FTSE 100, as it is heavy with exporters, who benefit from a weakening of Sterling.
    Here we look at the FTSE 100, which retains both short- and intermediate-term bullish trends, even with European and US equity averages dipping lower over the past 24 hours.

    Stock indices remain vulnerable to corrective losses

    Global share markets suffered significant corrective losses from the middle of the last week, although these setbacks are currently viewed as corrective within the context of strong 2019 recovery rallies.
    Nevertheless, the depth of the price erosion for major US, European and Asian equity averages highlights risks for further losses at least in the short-term into mid-February.
    This activity has reflected mounting concerns from latter January into early February of a global economic slowdown, more recently reinforced by a more dovish tone for the Reserve Bank of Australia, a disappointing New Zealand Employment report and significant downgrades in European growth forecast from the European Commission.
    Here we focus on downside correction risks for the UK benchmark average, the FTSE 100.
