Nikkei technical view

“The daily chart shows that the technical indicators are biased lower within bearish territory, whilst the index remains well below its moving averages, supporting some further, but tepid declines,” said Valeria Bednarik, chief analyst at FXStreet. “In the 4 hours chart, the 20 SMA approached current levels and currently stands at 16,057, while the RSI indicator continues consolidating in oversold territory, and the Momentum indicator turned flat right below the 100 level, all of which maintains the risk towards the downside.”

Support levels: 15,907 15,812 15,755. Resistance levels: 15,968 16,057 16,115.
