The Oslo FoB price advance is continuing. Prices appear to be heading towards the 76NOK area.

There is a down sloping moving average heading in this direction and a horizontal resistance level at this price area. The Composite Index is at a high displacement based on its history. It’s slightly above the peak in the index from early September 2022. The RSI index is continuing its steep ascent. The RSI’s current displacement is above where one would expect to find it during a bear market. The divergence between the Composite Index and RSI is growing larger.

Both indicators are near the higher end of their historical displacements. The RSI does have more room to run. The Composite Index can keep going higher but at some point, it will need to reset to a lower displacement. My current thoughts are the Oslo FoB index is moving towards the 76NOK area. Then we should see a retracement that should make a higher low to reset the indicators for a larger price advance.

I included a second chart for your review. It is a weekly chart of the Oslo FoB prices and the weekly Miami FoB prices. The Oslo Fob prices are shown as the bars in the chart. The Miami FoB prices is the green solid line. I was looking to see if one market leads the other in price changes and other correlations. I thought you’d enjoy to seeing the chart.

What is Technical Analysis?
