Eurostoxx Leading the Way

It is difficult to trade in current market conditions because the market is only driven by the political newsflow (Fed's decisions, Bernanke's testimony, Draghi's declaration, Obama, Boehner, Merkel, ...). In this context, trend are less relevant and huge move (up or down) can occur at any time. Anyway, we want to continue to test our model, even in those difficult market conditions...

The US and EU equity market was able to rally on both Thursday and Friday. When we look at recent performance, the Eurostoxx is the clear leader followed by the CAC. The DAX isn't anymore the leading European index and US indexes are lagging the European ones.

The Sigma Whole Market Index is just below a small horizontal resistance (pink line). We think it would be normal to get some sort of pullback at this level and it will be very interesting to analyze (if it occurs) if the pullback is impulsive or not.

Sigma Whole Market Index Chart

The Eurostoxx is very strong and was able to print a new 52 weeks high. It looks very clear there is a shift from US to EU and from industrials to financials. This is the main justification of the recent outperformance of the Eurostoxx and CAC40 vs the DAX.

Estoxx Chart

The CAC is right below its 52weeks high. Will we get some sort of consolidation prior to further advance?

CAC40 Chart

The DAX is weaker than the Eurostoxx and the CAC but the chart remains bullish, no doubt about that.

DAX Chart

The Sigma trend Index increased from '1' to '6' and Friday's move was impulsive (with the 'Swing' at '4').
