The Miami FoB Index has been resting near the $6.23 horizontal support zone for several weeks. There is a gold upsloping trendline that should offer additional support for the Index.

The $6.23 price area has been an important area of resistance for the Miami FoB Index which would imply that it could be an important area for support. Since early March 2023 the Miami FoB Index has been making lower lows and lower highs.

The Composite Index is diverging with the RSI and the Miami FoB Index. I drew in a thicker blue line to help you see the divergence on the indicators. The Composite Index is near the lower end of its historical displacement and appears to be turning higher. Notice that when the Composite Index does rally it will be rallying into the negative crossover of its moving averages.

The RSI is also near the lower end of its historical displacement. The current RSI displacement has been used as support and resistance. The RSI is also turning up close to the 40 displacement. The 40ish displacement is important to area for the RSI to hold. This is additional evidence that raises the probability the Miami FoB Index is still in a bullish move higher and this current pullback is a correction in a bull market.

This is an interesting setup for a bullish trade on the Miami FoB Index. The Miami FoB Index is at a horizontal support zone along with a trendline acting as additional support. The indicators are diverging with each other. If a person traded the Miami FoB Index, they could consider buying the Miami FoB Index in this price area and if the price goes below $6.20, sell it and take a small $.10 or .$15 loss. If the Miami FoB Index rallies, a likely target would be one of the red horizontal resistance zones along with the red down sloping trendline. The challenge to this bullish setup is the negative crossover in the indicators moving averages.
