(Created using Marketscope 2.0 Charts)

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.
