JPN225 Technical Analysis: 2-Year Low Under Threat

JPN225 Technical Analysis: 2-Year Low Under Threat

Nathalie Huynh,

Talking Points:

  • Nikkei 225 Strategy: Dip buyers be cautious if index challenges 2-year low
  • Immediate support is 14,963, followed by 2-year low at 14,353
  • Clear downtrend still dominates price action

As forewarned, JPN 225 broke below 76.4% Fibonacci at 15,545 to test a past support at 14,963. Below that, the 2-year low at 14,353 has come under threat. A breach of this level would be bad sign for the bulls and dip buyers.

Traders who look to buy dips should exercise caution during the rest of this week, especially if JPN drops further toward the 2-year low. Momentum signals remain in oversold zone with no sign to pick up yet.

On the topside, 76.4% Fibonacci now turns into an immediate resistance, topped by 50% Fibonacci at 17,416. Below is weekly chart for a broader view of the index.
