  • On the bond market, the Rizzo Farrugia MGS Index advanced for the eighth successive session with a further 0.1% uplift to yet another fresh high of 1,077.417 points. This contrasts with the marginal rebound in Eurozone yields to just above the 0.9% level as investors were relieved that the reading for Eurozone’s inflation was not worse than expected. Nonetheless, it is important to highlight that inflation in the 8-nation region still fell to a 5-year low of 0.3%. Investors now await next week’s monetary policy meeting of the European Central Bank (ECB) following pledges to inject more stimulus if inflation falls.
  • The share price of RS2 Software advanced by 1.1% to a fresh all-time high of €2.75 across seven deals totalling 33,502 shares. Today’s uplift follows the publication of the 2014 interim results which clearly showed the increasing level of business activity at RS2. Furthermore, the Directors confirmed that whilst further substantial investment in its infrastructure and business development is required, they maintain a positive outlook for the year. Further details on the results are available here.
