Intermarket Analysis: Paris CAC-40 Index.  NEAR TO INTERMEDIATE TERM BEARISH.  Chart 1 displays a daily bar chart of the Paris CAC-40 Index during the past year and highlights the mid July breakdown from 5 months of sideways congestion, the late July retest of the 200-day moving average as overhead resistance (orange line, a major trend proxy), and last week’s decline to fresh lows.  This series of events confirms a major bearish trend change in the index and targets an initial 10-% decline to 3300.

Considering the tight and stable 89% positive correlation between the CAC-40 and the S&P 500 since 2000, this breakdown suggests the likelihood of a similar and coincident decline in the US market.
