The Hang Seng Gaps Below Support At 22500 For The 4th Time


Recently, the Hang Seng has been building a broadening top formation. We'll  call it a Head/Shoulders pattern. Note the loss of the 200 DMA again.

$HSI 20140127

What is more interesting are the lines on the chart. Those lines have been there for years. Let's broaden the view with 3 years of information.

The Hnag Seng built a broad topping pattern in 2011 with support at the same level.

$HSI 20140127 4 years

For some reason at this level, the $HSI can really plummet quickly. Check out both the red circle areas. The HSI lost 4000 points quickly going through this area. Even more interesting is on a 6 year view, you can see this is where the $HSI broke down quickly back in 2008.

There seems to be a vaccuum tube at this level.Will this be a precipitous drop back down to 19500 again? Or is it different this time ?

Good trading,
