CAC 40 Trades Lower After Critical Breakout

(Created using Marketscope 2.0 Charts)

Technically, the CAC 40 has continued to decline after breaking out of a symmetrical triangle, which was identified last week. In the event that prices close lower today, it will mark the sixth decline in the index over the last 7 sessions. The next values of support for the Index includes the February 2 swing low at 4,115.80 and the psychological 4,100.00 level. In the event that prices break below 4,100.00, it opens up the CAC 40 to test new yearly lows below 3,890.50. Alternatively, if price action finds support, the Index may bounce back to the point of its initial breakout. The ascending line that previously comprised triangle support is now acting as resistance, and can be found near 4,295.71.
