…medium term the index was in a clear bullish trend evidenced by an ascending channel and supported by the 200-day moving average. It was stopped by the major resistance at 4110 points, tested on two occasions but without success. The decline from this obstacle allows one to anticipate a reversal of the dynamic, scenario confirmed by the breaking of the lower threshold of the channel. We are therefore bearish for the weeks to come.
|2 months Opinion||BEARISH|
|2 weeks Opinion||POSITIVE|

|Supports||162,3 / 159,4 pts|
In the shorter-term, following a recovery attempt stopped by the resistance at 4016 points, the prices pulled back violently. The strength of the movement, as evidenced by the opening of a gap, caused the breaking of a key threshold combining the lower threshold of the channel, the level at 3891 points and the 200-day moving average. The support at 3861.60 points, corresponding to the 38% retracement of the rise of June 2010 – February 2011, has been reached but should be broken in turn. We are short-term negative, we expected a continued fall towards the major support at 3760 points, with an intermediate target at 3800 points.
We set the invalidation threshold of this opinion just above the resistance at 3891 points. Its overflow would delay this scenario; the CAC40 could extend its rebound to between 3937 and 4016 points before declining again.
