US and European shares made modest gains yesterday as traders weighed a number of economic surveys pointing to robust growth in the US and eurozone factory sectors.

Asian stocks have also had a mildly bullish session, with Hong Kong’s Hang Seng putting in a small bounce after last week’s sell-off.

Key economic data this week includes the Bank of England’s rate decision and policy statement on Thursday, and US non-farm payrolls on Friday.

Hang Seng+0.67%Bullish for UK stocks

Regency Risk Barometer Snapshot

For the last eight sessions we’ve seen the FTSE edge higher within a series of tight trading ranges.

With prices now approaching the April swing highs, we would expect to see volatility increase as the market battles to break resistance.
