Technically the CAC 40 is finding intraday resistance at the R4 Camarilla pivot point, at 4,384. If price breaks above this value, it opens the Index up to make an attempt on the daily point of resistance mentioned previously. If the CAC 40 is rejected here, traders should look for price action to fall back inside of today’s trading range. This range is depicted below and begins at 4,369. A move under the R3 pivot here suggests that the CAC 40 may continue to decline and then continue to test values of support. S3 support is found at 4,342, and the S4 pivot resides at 4,327 for the session.
