The HSIF continued to move up yesterday amid positive sentiment, breaching the 21,400-point resistance to close at 21,474 points, RHB Research said

The latest bullish candlestick managed to reactivate the Bullish Crossover of the 20-day and 50-day SMA lines.
It said that as long as the index continues to trade above the 20-day SMA line, the 50-day SMA line may move higher in the coming sessions.
Once the medium-term moving average line rounds up, RHB Research said that the technical setup will improve. As bullish momentum has breached the stop-loss, we shift to a positive bias.

The immediate support is established at 20,500 points, followed by the lower one at 20,000 points. On the upside, the first resistance is eyed at 21,758 points – 13 Jun’s high – followed by 22,219 points.
