CAC 40 Ends Trading Day Little Changed

CAC 40 Ends Trading Day Little Changed

Walker England, Forex Trading Instructor

Talking Points:

  • CAC 40 Little Changed for Wednesday Trading
  • Sentiment Figures Remain Extreme; IG Client SentimentTotals at -3.62
  • Looking for additional trade ideas for equities markets? Read our 2017 Market Forecast

The CAC 40 has closed Wednesdays trading relatively unchanged, down -0.01% on the day. Top Winners for today's trading include Essilor (+2.39%) and Nokia (+1.05). Top Losers for the Index include both ArcelorMittal (-4.79%) and Bouygues (-2.40%).

Technically with prices trading lower, the CAC 40 now resides below its 10 day EMA (exponential moving average) found at 5,105.10. It should be noted that today’s close marks the first close below this average this week. Typically this suggest that momentum has turned downward in the short term, which may open the Index up to challenge the weekly low at 5,066.70 in future sessions. If the CAC 40 turns higher however, traders should first look for the Index to break higher above 5,105.10. In this bullish scenario, traders may next target a move towards the standing 2017 high found at 5,152.00.
