Markets were generally steady with risk on flows continuing to push equities higher as NASDAQ cleared the 11300 level adding 25 basis points in overnight trade. There was no economic news on the calendar in Europe while in North America the markets were only looking at housing data releases.
For now, the markets are simply content to push the trend flows in their long term direction with the weak dollar trade becoming more pronounced by the day. Both euro and cable were higher against the greenback with the former eyeing the psychologically key 1.2000 level this week.
