Talking Points:

CAC 40 has opened higher for Thursday’s trading (+0.61%), and has reached a new 2017 high at 5,036.10. European markets as a whole are trading higher for the session, as the conclusion of the Dutch election has bolstered shares. Top Winners for the CAC 40 include ArcelorMittal (+2.52%) and Societe Generale (+2.09%). Top Losers for the CAC 40 currently include Renalut (-3.50%) and Peugeot (-1.06%).

Technically, the CAC 40 continues to trade in an ongoing uptrend. As the Index advances, prices continue to remain supported by the 10 day EMA (exponential moving average) found at 4,984.88. It should be noted that the CAC 40 has not closed under this 10 day EMA since March 1st. In the event that the CAC 40 retraces off of its current highs, traders should first look for the Index to close under this point. This would open up the Index to challenge previous lows near 4,957.60.
