At the current junction, the closing of Doji Star Candlestick Patterns (low volume) implies a healthy pause in the current short term rally which coincide within the support zone of $4.06 – $3.97 levels. It is likely to see further upside strength for Singtel to retest its all time high nearing $4.28 immediate resistance level.

The strong correction in STI has been reflecting some relief of its downside pressure, with the market closing 3 consecutive days of Doji Candlestick Patterns reflecting indecision on increased transaction volume. This implies a step in of accumulation pressure. This is also reflected in the Global Equity Demand/Supply Index (Bloomberg) turning up, reflecting a strong interest of institutional level to accumulate the correction.

This observation is also accompanied with potential MACD bullish crossover, along with centerline cross.
