the harami cross identified above, in association with the volume dynamics of the last 4 sessions, further weakens the short rally of October.

After a gap of shortness of breath (01/11), the barometer traced on Tuesday November 1st a doji with a very pronounced high shadow, uninviting. The confirmation was clear on Wednesday 02/11 with a bearish engulfing combination in slightly rising volumes, then Thursday with a bearish gap. However, the opening in island reversal on Friday and the gains made during the session itself, only confirmed the nervousness and the contrarian nature of the short-term market. Friday’s session is therefore not predictive. Overall, the index is skating on resistance levels (6390 – 6550 points), in trading volumes which contract very significantly as major deadlines approach.

Negative review offered.


In view of the key graphic factors that we have mentioned, our opinion is negative on the CAC 40 index in the short term.

This bearish scenario is valid as long as the CAC 40 index is trading below the resistance at 6550.00 points.
