KSE100 continued to bleed, losing -362 points or -0.8% on a weekly closing basis. The critical pivot level of 46100 +/- 100 has been breached. While a retracement was observed at the support of 45500 +/- 300, it proved to be a dead cat bounce and the leading rejection from pivotal resistance affirms bears in control. As a result, we reiterate our stance as mentioned in so many previous posts that KSE100 is expected to stay in the corrective phase for the first half of Mar-2021 and bear hunters will take the trophy home. 45500 - 44700 +/- 300 remain the two important support levels and in event of a meltdown, we may see a free fall towards 43800 +/- 300. But we assign little probability to a breakdown further below. Also, the strength of the market has been demonstrated by a slow regression and sector-wise exchange of hands rather than a swift meltdown as it used to occur in past. For a better understanding, please read previous updates from the last three weeks.
