(M4) Monitoring Key Support

BTP TECHS
  • RES 4: 121.19 2.382 proj of the Feb 22 - 26 - 29 price swing
  • RES 3: 120.65 High Dec 27 and the bull trigger
  • RES 2: 119.55/120.28 High Mar 27 / 14
  • RES 1: 119.10 High Apr 10
  • PRICE: 117.14 @ Close Apr 17
  • SUP 1: 116.52 Low Feb 29
  • SUP 2: 116.15 Low Feb 22 and the bear trigger
  • SUP 3: 116.00 Round number support
  • SUP 4: 115.70 Low Dec 8 ‘23 (cont)

A bearish threat in BTP futures remains present and this week’s move lower reinforces this theme. Recent weakness resulted in a break of the 20-day EMA and a breach of 118.33, the Mar 15 low. Attention is on 116.52, the Feb 29 low and 116.15, the Feb 22 low and a key support. A clear break of the latter level would signal a stronger reversal. On the upside, clearance of resistance at 119.10, the Mar 27 high, would instead reinstate a bull cycle.
