The Miami FoB Index price is consolidating in the $5.80 area. We’ve seen this type of action back in 2018 where prices were flat for 5 months.

The Miami FoB Index needs a catalyst to get prices moving one way or the other. You can see the resistance line above prices at $6.01 and the green horizontal support line at $5.72 on the chart. There are two price moving averages offering additional support in the $5.41 price area. The Composite Index is continuing to move lower and has broken below the tan upsloping trend line on the indicator. There is a grey downward sloping trend line on the indicator that could offer support for the indicator. These two trend lines were drawn from points that diverge with price offering additional strength in their signals. The Composite Index is diverging with price.

The Composite Index is at a higher displacement than its August lows while the Miami FoB Index is at a lower price vs its August lows. The RSI is also diverging with the Miami FoB Index and has been moving sideways for the last several weeks. Both indicators have some history at their current displacements. I’m trying to give you an edge on which way prices will move from here. There are times when we just need to wait for clearer signals, and we appear to be at one of those times currently.

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?
