JCI movement is also seen with other technical indicators, namely the Relative Strength Index (RSI) which measures momentum.

Please note, the RSI is a momentum indicator that compares the magnitude of the recent price increase and decrease over a period of time.

The RSI indicator is used to detect overbought conditions above the 70-80 level and oversold conditions below the 30 level.

Based on the RSI indicator, which is at 39, the JCI is already neutral after coming out of the oversold zone after flying for two days in a row, so it has the potential to go down first.

For today’s trading, at least the JCI will move within the range of 6,708-6,813 first and potentially be corrected. The index needs to break (break) one of the resistance or support levels, to see the direction of the next movement.
