Earlier on from the end of last week, I’ve done the Fibonacci study from the 14th’s low at 515 to 14th’s high at 688. We can now see which Fib levels price has been reacting to.

More pertinently for today’s analysis however, we can see how price has been following the direction of the middle Bollinger line, using that as a natural line of resistance. This, coinciding with the fact that the Stochastics have been creeping slowly downwards without being oversold, implies that there still could be some further downwards movement, albeit slight due to the low volume right now.

However, the 50% Fib level actually seems to be providing some support and with the Accelerator Oscillator turning green a couple of candles ago, we could see price however between 600 and the middle Bollinger line for the rest of the day.
