Daily Technical Analysis
The main trend is up according to the daily swing chart. A trade through 27739 earlier on Wednesday reaffirmed the uptrend. The main trend will change to down on a trade through 26588. This is highly unlikely, however, due to the prolonged move up in terms of price and time, the market is vulnerable to a closing price reversal top.
The minor trend is also up. A trade through 27337 will change the minor trend to down. This will also shift momentum to the downside.
The first minor range is 27337 to 27764. Its 50% level or pivot at 27551 is support.
The second minor range is 26847 to 27764. Its 50% level at 27306 is additional support.
