  • Th key medium-term support rests at 65.70 which is defined by the former swing high area of 01/18 Mar 2019 and the lower boundary of the medium-term ascending channel from 26 Dec 2018 low.
  • The next significant medium-term resistance stands at 75.24/76.37 which is defined the swing high areas of 13 Mar/21 Sep 2018 and 1.00 Fibonacci expansion of the up move from 26 Dec 2018 low to 30 Jan 2019 high projected from 25 Mar 2019 low.

Key Levels (1 to 3 weeks)

Pivot (key support): 65.70

Resistances: 69.00 (trigger) & 75.24/76.37

Next support: 60.05


If the 65.70 key medium-term pivotal support holds and a break above 69.00 is likely to reinforce another potential upleg for Citigroup to target the 75.24/76.37 resistance zone.

However, a break with a daily close below 65.70 invalidates the bullish scenario for a corrective decline towards the next support at 60.05 (25 Mar 2019 swing low & close to 50% Fibonacci retracement of the entire 3-month up move from 26 Dec 2018 low to 17 Apr 2019 high).
