The stochastics are rising, and the RSI is also improving, to confirm the rising indicators and bullish MACD diff which is diverging in positive territory, prices need to challenge 13.81. A break of this level in the medium would confirm the reaffirmation of trend support last week and would confirm the ascending triangle. The DMI is rising and this affirms the recent trend from April. Conversely, rejection of prices above 13.20 could trigger a retracement back to trend support or the 40 DMA at 12.34, a break of 12 in the medium term may set the scene for lower prices to 11.35. Friday’s buying pressure suggests higher prices, confirming the bullish engulfing candle.
