I discussed in my analysis yesterday, the price patterns which led to the reversal from the high on March 4th, and we’ve seen how 50% is a powerful support level.

In the afternoon, I mentioned, “the Accelerator Oscillator has now turned green, and with Stochastics in oversold territory, I expect price to re-touch 38.2% later today.”

Which it duly did. Indeed, the Stochastics crossed upwards soon afterwards, and the Awesome Oscillator followed suit, hence propagating price to above the 38.2% Fib level. However, it has thus far failed to make it back to the 23.6% level. There’s some doubt to whether it will now, because the market is pretty much flat, with a sideways meandering.

In fact, zooming into the M15 chart, we can see why it’s not gone higher, and that’s due to the 38.2% Fib level I’ve applied to the actual retracement itself:

Therefore, I’d expect price to remain between 17.21 and 15.5 for the rest of the day.
