The Spanish IBEX 35 index tested the 10,660 handle twice this week, once on Tuesday and again on Thursday. The double bottom
on the monthly Tenkan can be interpreted as being bullish
and makes me think that the market has completed its corrective phase initiated back in April
. If European equities markets start rallying into the end of the month, the third quarter could prove to be very bullish
for the IBEX 35.
A reversal on the 10,660-10,800 monthly support would suggest a move back up to 12,000 later this year. Renewed pressures on the euro
and on European sovereign yields would provide the ideal fundamental backdrop for such a rally this summer.
