The Miami FoB Index move to higher prices has been slowing down the last few weeks. The Index is near the $6.26 horizontal resistance line.

The Index price appears to be rolling over. For example, picture a bike rider reaching the top of a hill and starting down. The red horizontal lines are areas of resistance for the Index. The green horizonal lines are support areas support for the Index. The Composite Index is at a high displacement compared to its history. The Composite Index can continue to go higher but at some point, it will need to reset lower. The Composite Index does have history at this displacement. I put some red downward pointing arrows to help you. What has happened to the Miami FoB Index price after reaching this displacement?

What happens to the Miami FoB Index price when the Composite Index reacts downward from this displacement? The RSI still has room to move higher. The RSI has used this displacement as support and resistance in its past. I don’t see any divergence between the indicators and price in the shorter time frame. In the longer time frame, there is divergence shown by the pink trend lines drawn on the indicators.

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.

Purpose of the Analysis?

How Does it Work?

On a regular basis (weekly), David will provide his independent analysis of LFEX and DataSalmon pricing data. The output will be to provide pricing trends based on the most up to date pricing received.

The analysis will show the expected trends and potential (price) levels, as well as other markers – for example, higher or lower price triggers that would affect the analysis of the trend – and what this might mean.

This is the same for any commodity product technical analysis.
