Overtaking 31450 will be the first sign of strength, while a sustained move over 31587 will indicate the buying is getting stronger. This could create the upside momentum needed to challenge the record high at 32033.
A sustained move under 31450 will signal the presence of sellers. If this move generates enough downside momentum then look for a test of last week’s low at 30866, followed by a pair of 50% levels at 30793 and 30676.
