The downside tails suggest appetite for prices below 14, this could see prices improve in the near term back towards 14.17. A break of 14.17 would set the scene a break out towards 14.50, this would confirm the bullish engulfing candle. On the downside, the two hanging man candles suggest that we selling pressure is improving and this could trigger losses back towards 13.82 before the 100 DMA at 13.13. The long term trend remains on the upside and we expect support at the 100 DMA to hold firm and keep the trend intact. Momentum is on the upside but continues to fail at 14.17, futures need to close abvoe this level to regian upside conviction after the two hanging man candles.

A break of the 40 DMA could set the scene for lower prices to 370.84. On the upside, to confirm the bullish engulfing candle, futures need to break above 403 and then target 415.

Buyng pressure is improving but the rejection of prices at the 40 DMA and previous trend support could set the scene for another test of 107 before the bears target 104.20. We expect prices to remain within the recent range today and test appetite around 112.
