World shares hovered just off an all-time high and the euro was steady on Tuesday, as the European Central Bank made sure there was little doubt in investors minds that global liquidity will continue. Britain's FTSE 100 .FTSE opened up 0.3 percent as it played catch-up after a holiday. The rest of Europe's main bourses .FTEU3, which saw mostly steady starts, had made gains on Monday following European election results.
