the 100-day moving average and marked by a succession of troughs and peaks which are higher and higher. The recent overflow of the 297.50 point level on which the prices had stumbled several times, confirms the continuation of the trend. We are bullish for the coming weeks.

Anticipation :
More recently, following an initial bullish impulse, the pull-back to support at 285.90 points reinforced by the 100-day moving average has revived the movement and led to the overflow of the 297.50 point level, a former major resistance, which became a support. The overflow of this key threshold releases a significant upside potential and therefore advocates an extension of the acceleration phase in progress.

We are positive in the short-term and target a rallying towards the resistance at 310.45 points, coinciding with the target produced by an extension of the previous impulse (blue arrows).

We set the invalidation threshold for this positive view slightly below the 297.50 support.
