Daily chart for NKY

Friday's trading range was ¥336.17 (1.49%), that's far above last trading month's daily average range of ¥198.78. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is slightly below the markets average with the monthly volatility being way below average.


Breaking below the key support level at 22332.82 today, it is now likely to act as resistance going forward.


Although Nikkei is currently in a short-term down trend, this could just be a correction, as the medium and long term trends are both positive. The market broke below the 200-day moving average at 22395.20 today for the first time since July 11th.


While classical technical analysis indicates a bearish sentiment for the next trading day, our quantitative statistics show a different picture being bullish.
