The stochastics have fallen sharply and the gap between them helps to confirm the downside momentum. The MACD diff has converged and now cross to become negative and we could see lower prices towards 110, with the 100 DMA at 108.37. We expect to see prices continue to soften in the near term, but if support holds at previous trend resistance would help confirm the outlook of higher prices in the long term, however, the market has repeatedly failed at 130 in recent months. If can gain a footing back above 115, this would improve upside momentum, however, we expect prices to weaken in the near term.
