Daily Technical Analysis
The main trend is down according to the daily swing chart. However, the trend has been neutralized by last Friday’s closing price reversal bottom chart pattern.
A trade through 6925.25 will negate the closing price reversal and signal a resumption of the downtrend.
A trade through 7961.00 will confirm the closing price reversal bottom, while a move through 9006.75 will change the main trend to up.
The minor range is 9006.75 to 6925.25. Its retracement zone at 7966.00 to 8211.75 is the first upside target. Since the main trend is down, sellers are likely to come in on a test of this area.
