Dirty Tankers coiling up? Baltic Tanker Indices – Week 47 technical commentary.

CLEAN TANKERS

In Week 47 we saw the Clean Tanker Index take a positive step in its recent consolidation, closing up on the week at 660.

With the RSI still at a peakish 78.6 and a weakly bullish MACD,
the index is just below our upside resistance ideas around 675-700.

Seemingly held up by our previous 625-650 support area, a continued state of limbo in the index may build some strength to make a push through that 675-700 zone.

Currently at 2018 highs however, (and just below 2017 highs) let’s see how peaky the index might be.

DIRTY TANKERS

For Week 47 the Dirty Tanker index gave us a solid close up on the week at 1130. With the candlestick chart beginning to resemble a coiled spring, the index gives the impression of gearing up for a move.

The RSI showed a still-peaky 83.84, while the lagging MACD stayed on a fairly bullish trajectory.

For an upside/resistance target, we’re still watching 1220-1225. The 900-925 zone was our previous downside support, which may still be viable. Glancing at the big picture, let’s note that the index is just off a four-year high. Peakish? Maybe.
