A break of 14.17 would improve upside momentum and this could trigger gains towards the recent high at 14.56. The tertiary level stands at 15. The reaffirmation of support at 13.80 could strengthen the outlook for higher prices but futures need to take out 14.56 and post a new high to confirm the outlook of higher lows and higher highs. On the downside, a break of support of the 40 DMA and then 13.80 would regain downside conviction. To indicate a change in trend, futures need to break below the 100 DMA.
