The Miami FoB Index appears to be rolling over near the $7.26 horizontal price resistance zone. The green upward sloping trend line and the green horizontal lines should offer support for the Index.

The first thing I noticed when I saw the chart was the divergence between the Composite Index and the RSI. This is a sign the upward price momentum is weakening. Normally when I see a setup like this the Index price should pull back along with the Composite Index and the RSI. The next rally will “usually” push the Miami FoB Index price and RSI to make a higher high and the Composite Index will make another lower high generating a sell signal. There is a lot of history in the Composite Index near its current displacement. I put a green horizontal line on the Composite Index for your assistance. Think of the width of the green horizontal line more as a width of a sharpie or marker vs. the width of a fine pencil.

This displacement could be support for the Composite Index. The RSI is also approaching a possible support area, the green horizontal dashed line. The RSI has made three prior peaks near its current displacement, meaning this displacement could be used for support for the RSI. If not, the next logical displacement area for the RSI is its red fast-moving average or the blue slower moving average.

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.
