  • European stocks declined Thursday, but overall trend higher remains
  • Bulls look to reclaim psychological 3000 level on EU 50 Index
  • IBEX 35 also looks higher, but the index lags its EU 50 counterpart

The downward price action follows grim economic data in the Eurozone along with new stimulus measures announced from the ECB. While the European index, representing the 50 largest companies in Europe, is down 24 percent year-to-date, April closed out a 4.35 percent gain in USD pricing, despite the weak finish Thursday.

Swinging from the March low, the index recently failed to clear its 50.0% retracement level. The trend higher remains intact, however. A move lower may find assistance from an earlier area of resistance, later turned support near the 38.2% retracement zone. Bulls will look to clear the psychological price level at 3000, and then the April high of 3050.19, set Thursday.
