With a P/E that is still over 21, even though it may rally from its present low, it looks inevitable that CRH, like American shares in general, will continue to fall for a considerable time.
A substantial rise in is necessary to maintain current price levels.
European shares trade at a P/E of around 14 and American shares must correct to similar levels. I am neutral for the moment, as there may be an upswing from the current level before continuing the downtrend.

Bouncing off Resistance Line R today seems to indicate a downswing. I guess we will see a movement somewhat along the track described by the green arrow. Looking back next month, we will say that the downtrend began on the 1st of March.

Pulling out of its recent down-swing, we watch to see if the index will be constrained by our speculative Resistance Line (purple), or if it will crash through this line to resume the up-trend. The up-trend has already proceeded beyond reason, and I won't be taking a long position. Should it bounce off the purple line, however, I am ready to resume a short.

I think the of the SVP is emerging, and I have replaced my previous "Indicative Resistance Line" (green) with my new "Emerging Resistance Line" (blue). Time, then, not for exiting the short, but for strengthening it!
Same goes for the other American indexes. European and emerging indexes may suffer a little as well, but are not (as) over-priced as the American.

S&P 500 and DOW 100 reached a peak on 1 Mar 2017, ending a charge that commenced last November.
The trend-line, "Long-term down-slope," indicates the possible top of the down-slope of the potentially-emerging Market. If so, there will be upswings and downswings within this down-trend.
The "Indicative Resistance LIne" indicates a possible marker (Resistance Line) by which the end of the current down-swing can be guessed. In other words, if this line is breached in the near future (by SVP and/or DIA), I will judge that the present down-swing is over.
Nasdaq rises and falls farther than the other two. It will be interesting to see if it will now take a real plunge.

The Dow, (here echoed in the DIA on the DOW 100, shown green), quickly followed the S&P, (here echoed in the SPV on the S&P 500, shown blue), downwards, and then the NASDAQ (here echoed in the QQQ on the NASDAQ 100, shown blue), joined in the dip.
It is too soon to say if this is the beginning of a downtrend, (or just a temporary blip), but why not, since the indexes are overvalued?

I am betting that the Social & Poor index will take a bit of a tumble. While this ETF, which shadows the S&P index, will probably sink over the next three years right down to $160, my initial bet is to the 5-year Support Line, exiting the bet at $224.
