Probable STI Movement
Preferred : Sideway Range between 2,950 - 3,050
Alternate : Bearish downward movement towards 2,800
Remarks: STI fails to break its 3,050 resistance level. A failed breakout is bearish signal. 2,950 is a moderately strong support with a confluence of price level support and 50 days moving average support. Thus, STI may expect some support and trade range bound for this week.
Comments on STI Technical View
Primary Trend is bearish as 55 Days SMA is trading below the 150 Days SMA and 144 Days SMA continues to be downward sloping.
Secondary Trend is bearish as MACD crossed below signal line and failed to break 2,950 resistance.
Minor Trend is neutral as ROC(10) is downward sloping and trades below zero. However, as STI is nearing its 2,950 support, may see possible short term rebound.
