JPN 225 Technical Analysis: Upside Bias within Corrective Range

JPN 225 Technical Analysis: Upside Bias within Corrective Range

Nathalie Huynh, Contributor

Talking Points:

  • Nikkei 225 Strategy: Cautious of tough resistance despite upside momentum
  • Resistance level 17,653 coincides with 20-day MA at 17,629
  • Failure to breach will keep the index in correction

JPN 225 display a strong upside bias similar to regional stock indices. However a resistance level at 17,653 coincides with 20-day moving average at 17,629, making it a tough level to break through. Failure here could lead to a downward reversal.

Range traders should keep stops nearby resistance level in case the index breaks out of range on the topside. Generally, it is in a corrective period with no concrete uptrend signal. Long-term traders may wait to buy the dips at a retest of support level, or alternatively after a clean break of 20-day MA.

Support remains at 15,978, also lower bound of corrective range.
