The index takes advantage of the effect of the positive climate on the US stock exchanges yesterday, with the S&P 500, which closed up 0.82%.
The CAC 40 is now a 4th session in a row of gains, with an increase of +0.68% at the time of the writing of this article.

The largest decrease in the CAC 40 is displayed by Renault (PA:RENA), with a dip of more than 7% after Fiat has announced the termination of its proposed merger with the French car manufacturer, ascribing this failure to the requirements of the French government, a shareholder of Renault.
Orange shows a loss of 2%, followed by Carrefour (PA:CARR) to -1.6%.
