CAC 40, 30 Minute Chart with Pivots

(Created using Marketscope 2.0 Charts)

Intraday, the CAC 40 is finding support near include today’s S3 pivot found at 4,480.75. If prices remain supported here, it suggests that the index may bounce into the close of trading. If prices begin to rise, traders should note that today’s R3 pivot is providing resistance at 4,535.86. A sustained rally through this value would be significant as the CAC 40 would then be trading at new weekly highs. Alternatively, if prices fail to bounce, bearish breakouts may begin under the final value of support at 4,453.19. A breakout below this point would suggest that this week’s bullish momentum has subsided, allowing traders to begin looking for a further retracement or potential price reversal next week.
