IFC Markets Tech Analysis

On the daily timeframe HK50: D1 is testing Fibonacci 38.2 level, above the 200-day moving average MA(200), which is declining.

We believe the bearish momentum will continue after the price breaches below the lower boundary of Donchian channel at 27563. A level below this can be used as an entry point for placing a pending order to sell. The stop loss can be placed above Fibonacci 23.6 level at 28374.1. After placing the order, the stop loss is to be moved every day to the next fractal high, following Parabolic signals. Thus, we are changing the expected profit/loss ratio to the breakeven point. If the price meets the stop loss level (28374.1) without reaching the order (27563), we recommend cancelling the order: the market has undergone internal changes which were not taken into account.
