…of the major resistance at 291.50 points in February has led to the end of the bullish trend which was in place since the month of May 2010. The Index is now consolidating between this obstacle and the major support at 262.40 points (a 50% retracement of the rise in May 2010 – February 2011). We are neutral in the medium-term and expect the breaking of one of these two levels to take a definite opinion about the direction of movement to come.
|2 months Opinion||NEUTRAL|
|2 weeks Opinion||NEGATIVE|
|Resistances||285,3 / 291,5 pts|
|Supports||277 / 273,4 pts|
In the shorter term, the recovery movement built off the major support at 262.40 points seems to lose its strength at its approach towards the trend line, now a resistance, as evidenced by the formation of an ascending wedge (a pattern of a shortness of breath during a movement). The triggering of this technical configuration (a break below the lower threshold and a breaking of the support at 277 points) should give rise to a strong bearish acceleration.
We are short-term negative and envision a rallying towards the major support at 262.40 points, with two intermediate targets at 273.40 points and 267.50 points. We set the invalidation threshold, lightly, just above the resistance at 285.30 points.
