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.
