Chart-wise, the key index formed a spinning-top candlestick which indicates indecision of the market to move higher, however, the bull still have an upper hand.
Daily MACD continued to move higher, albeit still below its signal-line, indicates a gradual pick up in upward momentum, as shown by the increasing shorter histogram. RSI (14) at 72.3 has move into the short term overbought zone, indicates the key index is turning more bullish. Stochastic at 93.8 continued to move higher into the overbought zone, and is tapering off. Signals from the indicators are indicating a gradual pick up in the upward momentum, and may continue its rise towards the 1500 point level.
