Anticipation :

In the shorter term, the corrective movement initiated after the failure of the resistance at 113 points was stopped by the major support at 97 points, tested twice. After bouncing off this solid support reinforced by the 200-day moving average the prices are consolidating above the support at 101.30 points in a flag. Triggering (an exit out of the top) this continuation pattern should lead to a bullish acceleration in the direction of the previous peaks. 

We are positive in the short-term and look for a rallying towards the resistance at 109.80 points.

We set the invalidation threshold for this opinion slightly below the support at 101.30 points.
