KSE100 held on the upper boundary of its pivot zone as a support and shows a moderate bounce off from this level. Breaking down below the pivot may turn the tide bearish. However, index remains in see-saw state which points towards a corrective stance. Pivots are dodgy and difficult to analyze but sustaining a close above the pivot remains a positive sign. An uptrend will be higher probability if closing is sustain above the second resistance line of 40700 +/-200.
KSE100 WoW average capitalization closed with a meager gain of +29.99 billion/PKR after several weeks of negative closing. The recovery is not significant enough to foment an opinion yet. It could either be an early phase of bull returns or just a corrective bounce (divergence) caused by futures covering. Movement during the week 43-2020 shall be an important decision indicator.
