The Oslo FoB Index also had a mild retracement in price of 3.30% in the last week. The Index appears to be heading to the 114.38 NOK price support zone.

There is also a grey upsloping trendline that should offer additional support in that price area. The Oslo FoB Index didn’t react at all to the red upsloping trendline that should have offered some support. The Composite Index is near the lower end of its displacement history. There is also a lot of history near this displacement that could offer support for the Composite Index. Notice that the Composite Index has made V and W bottoms near its current displacement in the past. The Composite Index current displacement is lower than its prior low from early March 2023. The Oslo FoB Index is at a higher price vs the lows in the Composite Index. This is usually a bullish setup.

The Composite Index is more oversold at higher Oslo FoB Index prices. The moving averages on the Composite Index have a negative displacement. The RSI moving averages also have a negative displacement and the spread between the moving averages is increasing, this is bearish. The RSI does have history at its current displacement. The RSI has used this displacement area as support and resistance. The RSI also has the same signal as the Composite Index and its displacement from early March 2023. The RSI is more oversold at higher Oslo FoB Index prices. This is bullish. On a side note, if a person was trading the Oslo FoB Index, the setup of the Composite Index or RSI testing the positive or negative crossover of their moving averages has produced large moves in the Index.

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.
