Compared to other major European markets, the Italian Government Bonds (IGB) have been quite bearish
over the past two/three years. The recovery in early 2017 has not really altered the general trend. Moreover, now that the recovery and ensuing consolidation has petered out, sellers should make a new push lower once support at 99.77 is taken out. Bearish
pressure elsewhere should make this rather easy.
Clearing 99.77 triggers a sell signal targeting 95.21 followed by the major pivot-lows of 2017 at ~90.18. Interestingly, IGBs look considerably worse than Spain.
Primary trend: negative
Outlook: renewed down trend below 99.77

Support: 99.77 / 95.21* / 90.18-
