Crossing below the lower Bollinger Band for the first time since October 2nd, prices have reached an unusually low price in the short-term. This could either indicate a potential turning point back up towards the mean of the Bollinger Bands at 10.48 or signal a strong momentum breakout leading to even lower prices.
Though still in a long-term uptrend, the short and medium-term trends both turned bearish already. Dexus broke below the 100-day moving average at 10.19 today for the first time since May 16th.
