Hang Seng Index 1-day

Technical Forecast for Hang Seng Index, Taiwan Index

Last week, Hang Seng Index (HSI) tested and failed to break above a long-term resistance level of 25,881, 50% retracement of the 2016-2018 rise. It extended losses further and set a 17-month low of 24,589 on Friday.

The key question in the following few days will be whether the index can hold at the 25,000 level or at least within the channel that it has held since June. On Monday, HSI found some support at 25,000, where the lower band of a parallel converges on a psychological level.

Technical Forecast for HSI: Neutral

Taiwan Index 1-day

Technical Forecast for Hang Seng Index, Taiwan Index

Last week, Taiwan Index (TWI) dropped below a long-term resistance level of 362.5, 38.2% retracement of the 2015-2018 rise. The index has been heading lower since it broke below the range of 380-420 that started in June; a re-test at 378.2 added further evidence of the bearish momentum.

Looking forward, the next targets will be 343.8, the 50% retracement level, and 324.6, the 61.8% retracement level; 324.6 is also the 100% extension of the October decline, which makes the level even more significant.

Technical Forecast for TWI: Bearish
