Eurostoxx Futures Remain Soft After Trading Lower Wednesday


Eurostoxx 50 futures traded lower Wednesday and the contract remains soft - for now. The 50-day EMA, at 4266.20, has been pierced and this signals scope for weakness towards 4233.00, the May 4 low and a key short-term support. A break of this level would strengthen bearish conditions. On the upside the bull trigger is at 4409.50, the Nov 18 2021 high (cont) and a major resistance. S&P E-minis traded low yesterday and this resulted in a test of the 50-day EMA at 4124.40. A clear break of this average would highlight a stronger short-term reversal and open 4062.25, the May 4 low and a key support. Initial key resistance has been defined at 4227.25, the May 19 high. A reversal higher and a breach of this resistance would confirm a resumption of the uptrend that started on Mar 13.
