CAC 40 Trends Lower in the Short Term

Talking Points:

CAC 40 is trending lower, and is set to close down for its 4th consecutive trading session. So far for Tuesday, the Index is trading down -.10%. European markets as a whole are mixed, with German Unemployment data in focus for tomorrows trading. Top winners for the CAC 40 include Carrefour (+1.89%) and Vivendi (+1.30%). Losers for the day include Schneider Electric (-0.48%) and Pernod Ricard (-0.51%).

Technically, the CAC 40 is trending lower in the short term. The Index is currently below its 10 Day EMA (exponential moving average) which is found at 4,866.29. If prices continue to trend lower, the next major point of support may be found at last Friday’s low at 4,806.10. A move below this point would suggest a larger bearish retracement may be in play, against the pairs long term uptrend. It should be noted here that the CAC 40 remains above its 200 day MVA (simple moving average), which is found at 4,592.01.

Intraday the CAC 40 is trading beneath its central pivot, found at 4,854.93. Typically this is interpreted as bearish, and now the Index is challenging intraday support found at the S1 pivot at 4,834.96. If prices continue to decline here, it opens the CAC 40 to test other values of support. This includes the S2 and S3 pivots found at 4,813.23 and 4,893.26 respectively.

It should be noted that if prices rebound, the CAC 40 will need to first breakout above the previously mentioned central pivot. At which point, other intraday values of resistance include the R1 and R2 pivot found at 4,876.66 and 4,896.63.
