“For the bullish scenario to take shape faster, we should attend the break of the key resistance of 9,000 / 9,055 points , which is the dividing line that separates a still corrective context from a potentially bullish one, depending on whether it remains below or it is exceeded respectively “, adds the expert in technical analysis.
“With the range of 3,980 points the EuroStoxx 50 is normal to form a bounce but it is still too early to talk of strength and that risks stay away from attending a wider correction and deep, you could find the area of the 3,800 points, “says Joan Cabrero, strategist for the investment strategies portal of elEconomista .
“In order to remove the risks, the first step is for the EuroStoxx 50 to be able to beat the resistance of 4,100 points and the next and final step would be to overcome the resistance of 4,215 points,” adds the Ecotrader analyst.
