European Resistance

European stocks, as measured by the Eurostoxx 600 Index, have traded in very broad range for the last 20 years. The Eurostoxx 600 Index hit a resistance zone of 400-415 in 2000, 2007 and again in 2015, failing to break out on each occasion. We are still below that resistance line today but getting close again. The Index traded at 390 in October 2017 and is back at 380 this week. There is a negative divergence appearing on the Relative Strength and Momentum indicators, suggesting that the current rally is losing strength.

If the Eurostoxx 600 Index can close at a new all time high and turn resistance into support, the Active Asset Allocator will take a position in European shares. The risk will be modest. Above 400-415 and I am a buyer. A meaningful close back below 400 and I would close out the position.
