Talking Points

  • CAC 40 prices continue to consolidate in a daily triangle; resistance ahead at 4,515

The CAC 40 has surged higher this morning and is trading up 1.33% on the day. So far European shares have reacted positively to, German Industrial Production numbers (MoM) (APR) beating expectations at .8%. As well, traders are still reacting to commentary given yesterday by Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen. With the likelihood of a potential rate hike for June diminishing, equities markets may be poised to rally further.

CAC 40 Daily Chart

CAC 40 Rises on Industrial Production Data

(Created using Marketscope 2.0 Charts)

Technically, the CAC 40 has continued to rally after finding support near 4,400. In order for this rally to continue however, prices must pass through several critical points of resistance. This includes a downward sloping trend line, which forms near 4,515. In the event of a breakout here, Junes standing high at 4,538 continues to act as the next major barrier for the Index. In the event that prices turn at trendline resistance, it suggests that prices may be trading in a consolidating triangle. This opens the CAC 40 up to decline back to values of support. This includes the previously mentioned support at 4,400, as well as triangle support near 4,300.
