As discussed in the previous post more than two months ago, the Romanian BETFI Index turned bullish and reached the 20 500 - 21 500 mentioned target area by the end of last year. As also hinted in the same post, this target area was the first stop before going higher towards 23 000 later on this year.
In the weekly chart above we see the index challenging the weekly EMA50 that proved strong resistance last year. If successful by the close of this week, BETFI next target is the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement of the 2011 downtrend, the falling weekly SMA200 and a previous congestion area, all converging around 23 000.
In the daily chart below we notice the potential a-b-c correction to the 2011 downtrend with the "c" leg symmetrical with the "a" leg (that reached the previous target area around 21 000) pointing to the same discussed zone around 23 000.
As suggested in the previous post, relative to BETXT, the BETFI Index managed to break out of both daily (chart below) and weekly (chart above) underperformance trends and started overperforming the market which also support the march of the index to the next target.
