  • RES 2: 4300.00 Round number resistance
  • RES 1: 4249.70/4256.00 50-day EMA / High Oct 12
  • PRICE: 4166.00 @ 06:37 BST Oct 17
  • SUP 1: 4082.00 Low Oct 4 and the bear trigger
  • SUP 2: 4055.40 76.4% retracement of the Mar 20 - Jul 31 bull cycle
  • SUP 3: 4034.00 Low Mar 24 (cont)
  • SUP 4: 4000.00 Psychological round number

A bearish theme in Eurostoxx 50 futures remains in play and last week’s reversal from 4256.00, the Oct 12 high, signals the end of the recent corrective cycle. Note too that resistance at the 50-day EMA, at 4249.70, remains intact. A clear break of this average is required to signal scope for a stronger correction. The bear trigger lies at 4082.00, the Oct 4 low. Clearance of this level would confirm a resumption of the downtrend.
