The Miami FoB Index fell 3.44% during the last week. The Miami FoB Index didn’t slow down at all at the price moving average near $5.46.

The next horizontal support zone is at $5.26. Notice the larger than normal spread between the $5.25 and $4.89 support zones. The spread between horizontal support and resistance zones is not equal. If you were trading the Miami FoB Index, the $5.26 support zone would not be the place to make a larger than normal bet because of the larger than normal spread between support zones.

The Composite Index is continuing to diverge with the Miami FoB Index and the RSI. Shown by the dark blue trendlines on the Composite Index and the RSI. The Composite Index displacement didn’t change its displacement during the past week, while the Miami FoB Index and the RSI fell. This is a sign the price move down is losing momentum.

The Composite Index has history at its current displacement. The RSI also has history at its current displacement. In 2019, the RSI formed a small W bottom. In 2019, this was not the Miami FoB Index’s final low. Meaning, the Miami FoB Index is due for a bounce but it is unlikely the final price lows are in place. Both the Composite Index and the RSI are near the lower end of their historical displacement extremes. The Miami FoB Index indicators are due for a bounce. Look to the head and shoulders top formation discussion from a few months ago as a reference.

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.
