The price spent the day around the 200-EMA which acts as a support for the index. The 50 and 100 EMAs crossed the 200-EMA downwards. The 200-EMA is pointing higher, the 100-EMA direction is downwards, the 50-EMA is turning upwards. The resistance is seen at 10700, the support is at 10520.

The histogram grew which is a buy signal. RSI is consolidating within the overbought area.

Trading recommendations

The index is trying to break above 10600 upwards. A clear strength above this mark will pave way for continuation of the index’s upward trajectory towards 10700.
