Technical Analyst, Saxo Bank

Summary:  AEX25. BEL20 and CAC40 all turned bearish last week taking out key supports. Further down side should be expected.
CAC40 seems to drop from support to support level.

AEX25 closed well below key support at 715 to reverse th4e uptrend since October. Bouncing from 700 the trend is down. RSI still showing positive sentiment however, still staying above 40 threshold. A close below will further confirm down trend. AEX is likely to test the 0.382 retracement at around 691 where the three SMA’s 55,100 and 200 will offer support.
If AEX moves below the three SMA’s it is likely to drop to strong support at around 661-654.
For AEX to reverse the down trend a close above 741 is needed.
