The CAC 40 is set to close today’s trading marginally higher (+0.33%), but significantly off of the weekly high of 4,580.30. As the Index ends in a consolidating pattern, many traders are looking towards Monday’s Euro Zone CPI Estimates to shake the Index loose. Expectations for Mondays release are set at 0.5%. Any deviation from this value may cause additional volatility in European markets, including the CAC 40, to begin trading next week.

Technically the CAC 40 is closing the week with the creation of an inside bar. Since today’s price action failed to breakout to a new high or low, traders may use yesterday’s pricing information to pinpoint a breakout in next week’s trading. Currently resistance is found at Thursdays high at a price of 4,557.30. Alternatively, support may be found using Thursdays low of 4,500.80. Traders should continue to monitor these values to determine the markets next chosen direction.

This places preliminary bullish breakout targets for the index at a price of 4,613.80. Alternatively, in the event that prices drop below support at 4,500.80, traders may target a bearish move in the CAC 40 towards 4,444.30. If prices fail to breakout, traders may consider to trade continued consolidation for the Index.
