The MACD is positive and the stochastics are rising and the gap between the %K/%D is widening indicating stronger momentum, but price action failed to confirm this when resistance at 18 held firm.

On the downside, rejection of prices at 18 could set the scene for lower prices to 17.48, a break of this level would confirm the reaffirmation of resistance and downside trend.
