Day By Day – Indipendent Research

This index is in a clear bullish trend, with a succession of higher peak and troughs, confirmed by the orientation of the 50-day moving average. We have no reason to question this trend: we are bullish in the medium term.



Anticipation  :
In the short term, the latest drop ended in a reversed head-and-shoulderpattern –over 5 days, and thereforehard to see on our chart. The 50-day moving average,very bullish, is very close and the Stochastics are oversold.This conjunction of favorableelements allows us to anticipate another short term rally.
We are thereforepositive, with a target at 449, and an intermediate objective at 442.95. The invalidation level is set just below the support at 427.
