AEX 25/ NETH25 cfd  traded last week above the resistance at around 730 only to be rejected at the 55 daily Moving Average. RSI was rejected at the 60 threshold thus still in negative sentiment

AEX seems set for lower levels. A close below 730 is likely to fuel a sell-off down below last week’s low at around 715. 700 could be tested

A close above 750 will demolish the bearish picture

BEL20/BELG20 cfd rejected at 3,579/3,571 resistance resuming down and is likely to take out October trough at around 3,445. A bearish move to 3,378 seems likely. Negative sentiment with no divergence on RSI is supporting the bearish scenario

A daily close above 3,575 could fuel a short rally to 3,632 but for BEL 20 resume uptrend a close above 3,730 is needed. The area around 3,650 is a strong resistance area

CAC40/FRA40 cfd didn’t even test the resistance at around 7,204 before sellers took back control closing the gap created 4th October.
Down trend has resumed and CAC40/FRA40 is likely to slide lower to support area at around 6,900-6,800. For CAC to resume to uptrend a close above 7,300 is needed.


SMI20/SWISS20 cfd resuming downtrend and is likely to close the gap i.e., close below 10,873 followed by a move lower.
