CAC Remains The Strongest Index, Watch It

When we look at different charts, it is (for most of them) rather difficult to detect if they are weakening or not.

When we have a look at the Sigma Whole Market Index (mainly focused on USA), we can see the rally was stopped by the upper end of the uptrend and it is difficult to say if we are (now) in a correction or in a consolidation phase.

When we have a look at the DAX, the situation is in line with the Sigma Whole Market Index.

But when we analyze the CAC, we can notice a (blue) triangle in formation, and this pattern looks like a consolidation in an uptrend. So, it is very important to monitor this triangle and to see if we break it by the north or by the south in coming sessions. The breakout will give us the direction of the next big move.

There is no new information coming from our indicators. The Sigma Trend Index is at '3' and remains in positive territory. It will be important to monitor (next week) if the market is able to challenge the "STI's zero line."
