    Please find below the Afternoon Report from David Evans, market analyst
    at BetOnMarkets.com

    World equity markets are lower today, but only slightly. The WHO
    elevating the swine flu outbreak to pandemic status has certainly hit
    markets with individual sectors such as travel firms and energy stocks
    selling off the most today. In a replay of the moves seen during the
    outbreak of SARS virus, pharmaceutical firms are actually rallying today
    as traders speculate that the sector could profit from futures
    investment in finding a cure. Astrazeneca in particular is finding
    support after European regulators approved the use of its drug Iressa
    for certain lung cancer patients.

    With further details on the results of the bank's stress test expected
    soon, investors certainly don't need any excuses to sell today. Anyone
    coming late to the rally may be quick to sell at the moment. The bullish
    sentiment hasn't completely evaporated though and world markets are
    actually recovering well as the afternoon progresses.
