Regency Risk Barometer Snapshot

After threatening to break lower, the FTSE futures ended yesterday’s session back where they started – just underneath the top of the inside day pattern which formed on Friday.

The market looks indecisive and we now have yesterday’s low and Monday’s high as small lines in the sand from which to gauge short-term sentiment.
