NKY pushes through previous session high
Moving higher for the 2nd day in a row, NKY finished the week 0.76% higher at 22930.36 after gaining ¥91.99 (0.4%) today. Today's closing price of 22930.36 marks the highest close since February 2nd. Trading up to ¥39.90 lower after the open, the index managed to reverse during the session as bulls took control ending the day above its opening price. Closing above Thursday's high at 22887.03, Nikkei 225 confirms its breakout through the previous session's high having traded ¥67.16 above it intraday. Ending the day with an indecisive close, neither buyers nor sellers were able to gain control during the session.
Friday's trading range was ¥86.89 (0.38%), that's far below last trading month's daily average range of ¥147.11. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is slightly below the markets average with the monthly volatility being below average.
Breaking through the key resistance level at 22912.06 today, it is now likely to act as support going forward.
The trend is clearly bullish, showing an intact uptrend in the short, medium and long-term.
While classical technical analysis indicates a neutral sentiment for the next trading day, our quantitative statistics show a different picture being very bullish.
