“Immediate resistance is 112.23, the 6th December low, the 112.43 55 quarter moving average and recent high at 113.71. We have a 5 month resistance line also at 113.05. We remain unable to rule out a deeper retracement to the 55 day ma and the 2 month uptrend at 110.16/23, which should hold for an upside bias to be preserved.”
