The Oslo FoB prices are trying to hold the black upsloping diagonal trend line. There is also a green horizontal support zone just below current price.

Regarding these diagonal upward and downward sloping trend lines, don’t draw these with a “razor fine” line, it’s more of a “thicker” line. Meaning, the small break below the trend line isn’t a major violation. The lower indicator is bouncing up from it’s lowest displacement in the history of the available data. I’m expecting a bounce in prices back up the brown downward sloping trendline. I see some divergence between the two indicators. The lower indicator is heading to the closest green horizontal line above its current displacement.

Both markets have a similar setup for the bulls if you are trading these markets. This looks like a possible area to go long. For example, for the Oslo FoB prices, put a stop order under the support zone at 69.07NOK. If prices bounce, it’s reasonable to see prices go back the brown down sloping trending line. Risking 3NOK while trying to make $10NOK. Seems like a reasonable risk / reward ratio in my humble opinion.

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.
