A monthly chart shows Hong Kong’s Hang Seng Index headed for a test of long-term resistance at 24000. A 13-week Twiggs Money Flow trough at zero indicates long-term buying pressure. Breakout above 24000 would signal a primary advance with a medium-term target of 27000*. Reversal below 21000 and the rising trendline is unlikely, but would warn of reversal to a primary down-trend.
* Long-term target calculation: 24000 + ( 24000 – 21000 ) = 27000
Singapore’s Straits Times Index is testing resistance at 3300. Rising 13-week Twiggs Money Flow indicates medium-term buying pressure. Breakout above 3300 would signal a primary advance to 3600*. Respect of resistance is less likely, but reversal below 3200 would warn of another test of primary support at 3000.
* Target calculation: 3300 + ( 3300 – 3000 ) = 3600
China’s Shanghai Composite Index remains on an upward path after the PBOC lifted bank credit. Rising 13-week Twiggs Money Flow indicates medium-term buying pressure. Follow-through above 2090/2100 would suggest another test of 2150. Failure of primary support at 1990/2000 is unlikely at present, but would warn of a decline to 1850*.
* Target calculation: 2000 – ( 2150 – 2000 ) = 1850
India’s Sensex respected support at 25000. Follow-through above 25700 would signal another test of resistance at 26000/26200. Breakout would offer a target of 27000*. Oscillation of 21-day Twiggs Money Flow around zero warns of hesitancy. Reversal below 25000 is less likely, but would warn of a correction to the primary trendline, around 23000.
* Target calculation: 21000 + ( 21000 – 15000 ) = 27000
Japan’s Nikkei 225 is finding support at 15000/15200. Declining 21-day Twiggs Money Flow shows medium-term selling pressure typical of a consolidation; respect of zero would suggest another advance. Recovery above 15500 would confirm, offering a target of the December 2013 high at 16300. Reversal below 15000, however, would warn of another test of primary support at 14000.
* Target calculation: 15000 + ( 15000 – 14000 ) = 16000
