Nikkei 225 Technical Analysis: Consolidate above Lower Bound of Range

Nikkei 225 Technical Analysis: Consolidate above Lower Bound of Range

Talking Points:

  • Nikkei 225 Strategy: Range trade returns as support holds firmly
  • Weak downward bias may not be enough to facilitate a break of support
  • Consolidation could prolong given year-end thin liquidity

The Nikkei 225 paused ahead of 19,341 support level or lower bound of its November range for a fourth session today. Weak downward momentum indicates muted price action ahead. The index is truly detached from October-November bullish channel, to trade within a range of 19,397-19,989 (61.8% to 76.4% Fibonacci).

A break of lower bound and support level becomes more unlikely, the longer Nikkei consolidates at current levels. Even in the event of a breach, another firm support of 50% Fibonacci would emerge at 18,918. The bears should preserve provision for a failure to return to the downside.

Range traders may find dip buying opportunity from here on, for target around a resistance level and 76.4% Fibonacci. Trend traders could wait out a bit longer or follow price action around any external/macro shock. Notice that thin market near the year-end will likely provoke outliers rather than a solid trend.
