Selling pressure caused futures to break back below 517.60 and this triggered a close at 516. The stochastics are still trending higher but are starting to top out as the RSI and MACD diff are also positive. The MACD is diverging still but yesterday's trading and rejection of 525 and full candle on the downside could set the scene for lower prices back to 516. A breach of near term trend support would set the scene for lower prices to 494. On the upside, the bulls need to breach 525 to confirm the ascending triangle. This could trigger a breakout on the upside. However, we anticipate the market to reaffirm support in the near term.

The close above the 61.8% fib level could set the scene for higher prices towards 1743 and then the 50 DMA at 1777. Conversely, lack of appetite for prices above 61.8% fib level could set the scene for lower prices to 1691. A breakthrough the recent low at 1662 could set the scene for lower prices and confirm the trend. However, momentum in the near term is on the upside and we expect this to remain the case.
