Although today’s bullish move was chiefly enhanced by the highly capitalized equities, it finally agreed with our expectation of sustainability of market recovery. The move was a big blow to the posing resistance as it confidently broke out of its grip with a full blown candlestick.
In our opinion, all traces of seemingly treats to market recovery may have been fully erased and traders are now responding to the nation’s improved economic indicators. Government efforts to improve the global ease of doing business along with the fairly stable translational rate should further enhance investments for rest of the year.
Please note that, aside the bright economic indicators recently ruling the market, other factors that will determine market direction for the rest of the year include the yuletide and accounts round ups of equities with December financial year end. On the strength of the above, we are of the opinion that traders should opt for bullish side from the next trading day. Safe Trade.
