The Miami FoB Index had a mild retracement in price this week. The Index is testing the green upsloping trend line which should act as support for prices.

If the Index can not hold the green upsloping trend line, there is green horizontal price support zones and a gold upsloping trend line that should offer support. You can see that the price does appear to be rolling over like rolling over the top of a mountain. The Composite Index appears to be heading towards the green down sloping trend line, the grey upsloping trend line and its slow-moving average. All three of these sources of support are just under the current Composite Index displacement. The Composite Index has used its current displacement as support and resistance in its past, increasing the odds that it could be used as support now. The RSI has moved under its fast-moving average.

The next logical place of support for the RSI is its slow-moving average or in the low 60’s displacement where the RSI has history of support and resistance. The RSI does have some history at this displacement. It was used as resistance bank in 2016 and 2017. Going back six or seven years might weaken the strength of this displacement’s reliability in the current market. Based on the Composite Index recent peak displacement, this pull back in the Index is most likely a pullback in a continuing bull market.

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.
