Eurostoxx 50 Uptrend Remains Technically Overbought
The EUROSTOXX 50 futures trend needle continues to point north. Resistance at 4206.00, the Jan 18 high, has been breached. The clear break confirms a resumption of the current uptrend and paves the way for gains towards 4269.50, a Fibonacci projection. Note that the trend remains overbought. A pullback, if seen, would represent a healthy correction. A break of 4097.00, the Jan 19 low, would signal the start of a short-term bear cycle. S&P E-Minis traded higher last week and in the process cleared recent highs to confirm a resumption of the current bull cycle that started Dec 22. A key resistance and a bull trigger at 4180.00, the Dec 13 high, has been pierced. A clear break of this level would confirm a resumption of a broader uptrend and open 4250.00, the Aug 26 2022 high. Initial firm support lies at 4007.50, the Jan 31 low. The latest pullback is considered corrective.
