The Miami FoB Index fell 4.65% in the previous week of trading. The Miami FoB Index broke through the $5.88 horizontal support zone and the price moving average near the same price.

The next support zone is $5.58 and there is also a different price moving average near $5.58 that should offer additional support for the Index. Notice the trend of lower lows and lower highs continues. This week’s price of $5.74 is lower than price low from December of 2022 at $5.78.

The Composite Index is near the lower end of its historical displacement range. The Composite Index has used this displacement in the summer of 2022 and May 2023 for support. The spread between the fast- and slow-moving averages on the Composite Index are stretched far apart. The spread between these two moving averages can continue to widen but at some point, the spread will begin to converge.

The RSI also has history at its current displacement. The RSI has used this displacement as a bottom four prior times. The RSI appears to form a double bottom when it does use this displacement as support. Double bottom, think of a W pattern in the RSI. There is still divergence between the Composite Index and the RSI since early May 2023.

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.
