The Oslo FoB index has broken the green up sloping trend line. There is a grey up sloping in the low 60’s NOK.

There is also horizontal support at 65.31 NOK. The Composite Index has broken the purple support line. The RSI is also continuing it’s move down and the moving averages displacement is turning negative. If the RSI rallies back up to test the negative displacement of its moving averages and fails would stronger bearish development. Both indicators have used this displacement as support and resistance in the their history.

The bulls still have a chance, but they need to step up soon or this bounce since July could be a rally in a bear market. In previous updates, I commented that there is still a chance the Oslo FoB index can see the 37 NOK area. I put that information back into this update for your review. The bottom of the green rectangle price is a possible target for the Oslo FoB index near the 37 NOK price area.

I’m still looking for a market that leads the Oslo FoB index and the Miami FoB index. I’ve included a second chart with the Oslo FoB Index, the blue line in the chart. The green line is the US Dollar Index and the brown line is the Miami FoB Index. Usually when the US Dollar Index rallies, most commodities move in the opposite direction and vice versa.

What is Technical Analysis?
