Short term view - 3I GROUP PLC : The background trend is clearly bearish.

The background trend is clearly bearish. The negative MACD confirms the trend. The rise is a consolidation that will soon bump against the level at 894.10 p. The next target is at 827.40 p, then 780.70 p. Passing 961.80 p would question the continuation of the fall.
