This week’s financial spread betting update is now available and can be read by clicking here. The weekly update is to bring you up to speed on what has been happening in the markets over the past week as well as what to look out for in the coming week so that you can plan your spread betting strategies accordingly.
During the past week we saw continued weakness for the US dollar and an overall rise for the stock markets. The S&P 500 stayed below the key resistance level of 1129 but will likely test that level this week and possibly as early as today as the futures are opening higher at the time of writing this on Monday morning. European stocks indexes, in particular the German Dax, have continued to rise, and the Dax has reached its highest level in almost 2 years.
The best trending markets continue to come from the interest rate futures sector and all of the markets in this sector remain in a long term uptrend.
The biggest moves of the week came from the grains sector and we saw some limit moves from Wheat as well as higher prices virtually across the board from the grains markets.
This week’s financial spread betting update begins with:
The past week has seen US stocks continue to move higher but still remain within the overall lateral trading range. Last week’s US jobs figure sent the markets tumbling at the US open on Friday but then show a strong recovery. We may see a breakout for stocks this coming week..
