Talking Points:

The CAC 40 and other European equities markets are remaining quiet this morning, as traders await ECB’s Mario Draghi speaking in Madrid later in the session. So far the CAC 40 is trading up +0.35% for Wednesday’s trading. Top gainers for the session include Carrefour (+2.32%) and Accor (+1.03%). Top Losers for today’s trading include both Michelin (-2.56) and Vivendi (-0.98%).

Technically, the CAC 40 is trading back to a key value of resistance at the 10 day EMA (exponential moving average) found at 5,343.37. A move above this values should be seen as significant, as it would suggest that market momentum is turning higher in the short term. In a bullish scenario, traders may next look for the Index to challenge last Wednesday’s high of 5,395.70. If prices are rejected at present levels however, traders may next look for the CAC 40 to challenge the standing monthly low at 5,238.40.
