FX:US30   Index of top 30 shares on Wall Street
DJIA             ended last week on a softer note, although losses were moderate, courtesy of Friday’s rally. Major European markets are trading on a strong footing today.

Chinese equities slumped more than 2.5% after government mouthpiece said the nation is likely to see an “L shaped” recovery. An L-shaped recovery means a plunge in key economic measures followed by a period of flat growth.

However, European equity markets are not worried about “L shaped” recovery. Moreover, an “L shaped” is any time desirable than a hard landing and thus is a good news of sorts to the markets. No wonder then the Dow futures are indicating the index is likely to open 38 points or 0.22% higher on the day.

The economic calendar is light today. Oil             prices are trading moderately higher as well, with little reason for a sudden shift in sentiment ahead. Consequently, a positive start in DJIA             to this week’s trading is likely.
