CAC40/FRA40cfd is trading very similar to DAX with the Index hovering around the 0.618 Fibonacci retracement level. Do gain further upside CAC needs to break above 6,680. That would most likely lead to a test of the 200 daily Simple Moving Average (SMA) just below 6,800 and a possible test of the Neckline of the Shoulder-Head -Shoulder pattern.
However, current resistance could be too strong , RSI (Strength Indicator) is still below 60 threshold i.e. still in bearish sentiment. A break below 6,460 will most likely lead to bear trend to resume.

Contrary to DAX and CAC40, AEX25/NETH25cfd seems to be struggling bouncing much above the 0.382 retracement. Will it reach 0.50 retracement? Jury’s still out though. However, RSI below 60 i.e bearish sentiment and if AEX drops back below 700 the bear trend is likely to resume

BEL20 has bounced stronger than most other European markets. Above 0.764 retracement and close to the strong resistance at around 4,155. RSI is flirting with the 60 bull/bear threshold but is likely to be rejected. If BEL20 closes the gap between two dashed lines bear trend is to resume.
