The Oslo FoB Index had another week of overall upward price movement. The Oslo FoB Index is just under the 96.47 NOK resistance zone.

There is also a price moving average just above the 96.47 NOK horizontal resistance zone that should offer additional resistance. The Oslo FoB Index is also under the black up sloping trendline drawn from the lows in 2021 offering additional resistance.

The Composite Index is showing the same signal that stopped the rally in April 2023. I’ve drawn black trendline in the Composite Index from the peak in March and April 2023. The Oslo FoB Index made a lower high while the Composite Index made a higher high. The Composite is over bought at lower prices. This is a sign of weakness. We have the same signal currently, represented by the green trendline on the Composite Index. The Composite Index is also very close the same displacement where is this signal occurred in April 2023. The Composite Index has used this displacement as a high several times in its history.

The RSI is showing divergence with the Composite Index, just like it did with the sell signal in the Composite Index from March to April 2023. There is some history of the RSI using this displacement as support and resistance. It’s certainly possible that the Oslo FoB Index can continue to rally to the red down sloping trendline that has stopped the last two rallies in the Index. I have doubts that Oslo FoB Index can rally to the red down sloping trendline. An early signal the rally is failing is breaking the up sloping green trendline drawn under the most recent rally.

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.
