The CAC 40 has opened higher this morning, and is trading up +0.83% on the session. The Index has risen modestly after prices bounced from today’s S3 value of support at 4,236.40. If prices continue to push higher, traders should look for resistance near 4315.60. This area is represented in the graph below at the R3 pivot, and represents range resistance for today’s trading.

In the event that price action breaks from the previously described pivot range, traders may look for price breakouts either above the R4 or below the S4 pivot. The R4 pivot for today is found at 4,355.20. A move above this value would be significant, as it would be the 4th attempted bullish breakout for the CAC 40 over the last 4 trading sessions. Alternatively, bearish breakouts may be triggered below the S4 pivot at 4,196.80. A move below this point would be the week’s first bearish breakout.
