The Oslo FoB Index is also continuing its strong rally. The Index is up 12.7% in a week. The Index price is challenging its all-time highs from late April to early May 2022.

Most of the time I’d expect to see the Index’s price momentum to slow down and consolidate its gains near the all-time highs in price, however, it is not a rule. The Index price is also challenging the 128.90 NOK price resistance zone. I put in some additional resistance zones, red horizontal dotted lines. I also put in some horizontal price support lines shown in green. The Composite Index rolled over but is testing its fast-moving average, an area of support for the Composite Index.

The current displacement in the Composite Index has produced some topping areas in the past. I drew a red dotted horizontal line to help your eye look back and see what has happened at this displacement for the Composite Index. The RSI also rolled over and is now bouncing back up challenging its highs from earlier in the week. There is divergence between the RSI and the Composite Index in the very short term, see the black trend line on both indicators. When we see divergence between the indicators, it’s usually a sign that the momentum is weakening.

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?

On a regular basis (weekly), David will provide his independent analysis of LFEX and DataSalmon pricing data. The output will be to provide pricing trends based on the most up to date pricing received.

The analysis will show the expected trends and potential (price) levels, as well as other markers – for example, higher or lower price triggers that would affect the analysis of the trend – and what this might mean.
