Technical analysis

Hang Seng

A group of protesters has been blocked on a Hong Kong university student campus since the weekend. Police are reported to act violently. The U.S. calls on the government to refrain from suppressing the protesters by force, and the High Court of Hong Kong has put in place an anti-mask law.

Meanwhile, the stock index began to grow after touching the support level. We do not rule out that investors expect the problem in the city to be soon resolved. Technical analysis implies the potential of growing to 28000.


The asset has confirmed the stability of the support level at 9.08. We expect an uptrend to begin.


Perhaps, the Triple Bottom pattern combined with the news from Iran will help the oil quotes to strengthen.
