Here’s my weekend wrap-up of the Philippine Stock Exchange Index (PSEi) to supplement my previous post about it (kindly click here to see it). Despite the drop of the Dow Jones Industrial Average (^DJI), Nasdaq Composite and the S&P 500, the PSEi defied all odds by maintaining its uptrend and that can be seen in the chart provided. Well of course it dropped a bit as a reaction to the more than 5% decline of the ^DJI for the past few days but still, the PSEi didn’t follow the drastic downswings of that US benchmark. At the same time, there is no head and shoulders breakdown or merely no head and shoulders setup at all in the current PSEi chart as far as my eyes could see unlike in the 3 US stock indices I mentioned (kindly click here to see the setups: 1…2…3…).
In the chart of the Philippine Stock Exchange Index, the price is currently moving within the uptrend and the 3,360.00-3,380.00 resistance levels. As a result, if it continues to do so, the price will no longer have space to move further unless it breaks above the 3,360.00-3,380.00 resistance or break down from the uptrend. If the current resistance gets cleared out, 3,667.74 could be the next price mark. On the downside, if the uptrend gets broken, the next support could be 3,219.46. Like what I always say about uptrends, as long as the uptrend remains intact I’d stay along side with the bulls.
