The Oslo FoB Index rally continued during the last week of trading. I refreshed the support and resistance zones levels. The next horizontal resistance zone is at 104.19 NOK.

There is a black downward sloping trendline that is just below the 104.19 NOK resistance zone. The Oslo FoB Index has also stayed above the green upsloping trendline. The slope of the accent in the Oslo FoB Index has increased above the green trendline. The red downward sloping trendline is the trendline that has stopped the recent rallies. The red trendline is a good distance away, near 113.71 NOK horizontal resistance zone. It’s challenging to see but the Oslo FoB Index is testing the underside of a price moving average which could offer resistance.

The Composite Index is at a high historical displacement. The Composite Index can keep going higher but at some point, it will need to reset lower. The Composite Index is in the same situation as last week’s update, it’s at a higher displacement while Oslo FoB Index is at a lower price, this is a sign of weakness. There is also divergence between the Composite Index and the RSI, this is also a sign of weakness. Notice the moving averages on the Composite Index and the RSI now have a positive displacement, this is a bullish development.

It can be interpreted that the RSI already tested the positive crossover of its moving averages and is rebounding higher. As we’ve seen in the past, this can be a very bullish setup for the Oslo FoB Index. As usual, we are seeing some positive and negative clues as to what the future will bring for the Oslo FoB Index. The first sign of trouble, in the short term, would be the Oslo FoB Index breaking the green upward sloping trendline.
