The technical analysis of the CAC40
From the point of view of graphical analysis, the design office DayByDay observes the formation of a third black candle with a fence at the lowest of the session. A bearish gap has now been opened when the support breaks at 4979 points. A figure begins to take shape: by connecting the 3 descending tops between them, there is a downward pressure that would fit in a descending triangle. The problem is not the figure itself, but rather its potential: around 4500 points.
