For the session, the CAC 40 is trading down -1.51%. Of the 40 listed components, BNP has had the biggest daily decline trading down -4.20%. The next daily swing low for the CAC 40 may be found near 4,302.50. If prices rally above this value, the CAC 40 may rebound to retest the previously mentioned SMA. Alternatively, a daily break below this point may open up the Index for a larger decline.

CAC 40, Daily Chart

CAC 40 Continues to Slide From Resistance

Short-term technical levels for the CAC 40 include over the S4 Camarilla pivot, at 4,352.04. Price has currently retraced to this value, and as long as price remains below it, the CAC 40 may maintain its bearish momentum. If price trades back above 4,352.04, it opens the Index to move back inside of today’s trading range. The pivot range for today’s session begins at 4.369.17 and concludes at the R3 pivot at 4,403.43. A move back inside of this range would be significant, as it would suggest a change in momentum for the Index. A continued bullish move may also expose the R4 pivot, which is currently located at a price of 4,420.57.
