Technically the CAC 40 is finding support at the S4 Camarilla pivot point, found at a price of 4310.98. If prices remain supported here, traders may see the Index bounce and begin to pare previous losses. A move back inside of the trading range, beginning at the S3 pivot at 4,331.69, would signify a significant change from the current bearish market conditions. Alternatively, if prices continue to decline, traders may look for a continuation breakout under the S4 pivot. In this scenario traders may look for the CAC 40 to test other values of support, which include the psychological 4,300 level.
