European shares regain some poise, quarter-end eyed
LONDON, March 26
LONDON, March 26 (Reuters) - European shares steadied on Tuesday, with some investors using the previous sessions' steep sell-off to buy back into the market, but uncertainties about the broader implications of the Cyprus bailout kept a lid on any gains.
The FTSEurofirst 300 was flat at 1,186.48 points by 0814 GMT .
"We hooked masses of selling yesterday afternoon, but in the absence of a 'bad news chaser', now we can have the quarter-end rally, so watch those new shorts being squeezed," said Justin Haque, broker at Hobart Capital Markets.
