High probability TSX Index will test support of 12,900
Technical analysis is all about evaluating probabilities. There are no sure things when you evaluate a chart: just guideposts. In the near-term, the above chart indicates a high probability that the TSX Index will test support of 12,900. And there is a low probability that the index will break resistance of 13,500.
Here are the negative points from the above chart:
- Tall shaven head and bottom candlestick on the chart today
- The 10-Day SMA crossed below the 20-Day SMA
- The volume was average today but volume does not have to confirm a downtrend
- RSI is confirming the downtrend
- Notice the divergence when RSI did not confirm the November high
