Is CAC 40 Index Headed For A Steep Decline?

The French stock market has been very strong this year, with the CAC 40 Index streaking higher into late summer.

But the rally fizzled out at a key spot, leaving the index vulnerable to a correction.

Today’s “monthly” chart of the CAC 40 Index highlights this. As you can see, the steep rally created a sharp rising wedge pattern that culminated in a test of (and reversal at) the 2000 highs. That reversal left “Wiley” standing on thin air!

The CAC 40 has subsequently broken down and out of the rising wedge pattern and is testing lateral support at (1).

French stock market bulls better hope that the Index can turn higher from here… otherwise, “Wiley” might be headed for a fall! Stay tuned!
