JPN225 Technical Analysis: Strong Rebound As Asia Re-Opens

JPN225 Technical Analysis: Strong Rebound As Asia Re-Opens

Nathalie Huynh, Contributor


Talking Points:

  • Nikkei 225 Strategy: Sharp rebound likely carries on as Asia markets reopen
  • Immediate support at 14,963 becomes a firm support
  • Momentum upward reversal sets course for more gains

JPN 225 sharply bounced back today from 14,963 support level, also past the 74.6% Fibonacci at 15,545. Upward momentum hints at higher extensions to come. However the magnitude of gains may cool down after the first day back at work for Asia markets.

Short term traders could investigate the appropriate levels to buy dip, in anticipation of a short term upturn. Due to nature of market sentiment, it is unclear whether this rebound may build into an uptrend for the index. Topside remains capped by 50% Fibonacci at 17,416.
