In the event of a bullish price reversal, traders may look for the CAC 40 to trade back inside of today’s trading range. Today’s range is depicted above, and begins as the S3 pivot at 4,116.50 pivot mentioned above. A move to this value would be significant, as it would suggest that bearish momentum for the day has at least been temporarily stymied. In this scenario, traders may begin to look for price action to trade towards values of resistance. That includes range resistance found at 4,177.11 and the R4 pivot at 4,207.41.
