Anticipation  :
On the short term side, prices accelerated deeply on the trigger of the head-and-shoulders.The index actually fell in a straight line down to the 277.10 points major support area. This threshold is important: former resistance tested on several occasions, it is the 61.8% correction level of the rise initiated in November 2011 as well as the theoretical target area of the reversalpattern (purple arrows). The contact with this solid area should therefore cause a technical bounce toward the 291 points resistance. We are positive in the short term.

We set the invalidation level of this bullish opinion slightly below the 277.10 points major support.
