CAC (FRA40) - SELL - 17th August 2021 (Closed)


Afternoon team,

We have been patiently waiting for global indices to reach key levels to take short positions. This morning we have already seen the ASX take an initial leg down after breaking down from the rising wedge structure. There are mounting concerns of a possible global slow down due to negative retail sales and manufacturing data coming from China. There are other fundamentals coming into play, including the delta variant of covid-19, FED tapering concerns, US debt ceiling, tensions in the Middle East and rising inflation. We have decided to turn to the CAC due to the major double top structure.
