Chart of the day: HSCEI reasserts uptrend


The Hang Seng China Enterprise index appears on the 'Gainers' list with +1.9% for today's session.  The market seems to have reasserted the advance after correcting the overbought situation that had arisen towards the latter part of July.  A long trade is opened for the upside potential towards the December 2013 peak at 11638.3, with the possibility of the early 2013 pinnacle, at 12354.2, after that.  The stoploss is placed under support from the 50-day moving average, at 10500.


Daily Comment:


Japan's benchmark Nikkei 225 index was the subject of Friday's Chart of the Day.  The piece ended with a warning of possible slippage towards the 14000 region, unless an upward dynamic occurred beforehand.  Recording a 2.4% gain today, the market has indeed rebounded strongly, finding support at the 200-day moving average; against the background of an oversold RSI momentum indicator.  There is a chance that former support at the shorter-term MA may convert into a barrier.  However, a breach of 14753.8 is needed to offset current scope for a further rally.


European bourses are trading in a positive manner so far today.  For instance, the UK's benchmark FTSE 100 index is currently changing hands at 6614.  Support is arriving above the March/April floor near 6500 to reverse the oversold decline.

We book the remaining profit on the short trade held in Italy's S&P MIB index, making 8.11%.  The market's oversold fall encountered intraday resistance at 18885.6 on Friday, near the February floor.  There is room on the chart for a further near-term recovery towards potential resistance along the 20000 mark.

Stops were triggered on longs held in Denmark's KFX and Africa's Industrial 25 indices, incurring 5.33% and 3.6% losses, respectively.  These markets did go on to find intraday support at 692.41 and 57871.
