The Miami FoB Index experienced a 2% pullback in prices since my last update. The Miami FoB Index is approaching the $5.88 horizontal support zone. The Miami FoB Index is also testing a price moving average and the green upward sloping trendline, both should offer support for the Index.

The Composite Index retreated after testing its fast-moving average from below. The Composite Index has history as its current displacement. In December 2022 the Composite Index used this displacement to launch a major rally. The Composite Index also used this displacement start a rally in January and November of 2021.

The RSI also has history at its current displacement as support and resistance. The RSI and Composite Index continue to diverge with each other, represented by the brown trendlines on each indicator. The RSI is also testing green upward sloping trendline that should offer support. The Indicators are both near their lower end of their historical displacements and can still continue to move lower. I’ve mentioned several possible reasons why the Miami FoB Index can find support near its current price. I would like to offer a friendly reminder that it is challenging to fight the trend. The Miami FoB Index continues to make lower lows and lower highs.

What is Technical Analysis?

Technical Analysis is used to try and identify price trends in the future. Analysts believe that by using factual past information (trading activity and price changes) it is possible to identify future price movement trends and is quite prevalent in commodity and forex markets but can be applied to any product.

Technical Analysis has been developing for over a century, and there are now hundreds of patterns and signals that have been created. They are often used in conjunction with other forms of research and analysis to help formulate, or support pricing trend opinions.
