Opinion : Check out the trading range breakout 365 / 386 
The summer sequence was marked by a decline in the 600 stocks grouped under this extended index of the 17 European countries. Stoxx Europe 600 has therefore fallen by 3.7% since the beginning of July, when the trade dispute broke out. Nevertheless, some files concerned by takeovers may have stood out.
The British aeronautical equipment manufacturer Cobham, following the offer of the American fund Advent, gains +47%. Then followed another British company, Greene King (brewery), which was bought by a Hong Kong fund. The Danish language, Pendora, also grew by 32% thanks to good communication on its prospects.

On the other hand, among the sharp declines, let us note the basic resources affected by the trade war and the banks, such as the Irish AIB, which disappointed in its publications and conceded 35% over the last two months.

Graphically, in daily data, prices have just tested the good low of 365 points during the violent drop of 384 points. A period of reflection is taking place among investors, hesitating between the possibility of still taking profits under relevant conditions and the concern not to miss a technical recovery.
It will therefore be necessary to wait until the 376-point bullish crossing to switch back to neutral mode, with a target of 384 points. On the other hand, a break of the 365 points at the end would lead the index to 358 points.
