CAC 40 Moves on Next Support

(Created Using TradingView Charts)

Traders should continue to monitor this point because a bounce near 4,310.88 may suggest that the CAC 40 is trading in an ascending price channel. In this bullish scenario, traders may look for the CAC 40 to not only bounce but to challenge resistance near 4,600.00.

However in the event that the CAC 40 fails to find support, traders may being looking for a series of bearish breakouts. A bearish decline may include a move below the depicted trendline, coupled with a move through the September 16th low at 4,310.88 and the previously mentioned low at 4,293.34. A move of this nature would have severe bearish implications and suggest a return of the ongoing 2016 downtrend.
