Current level at the time of writing is 1250.95, trading below the rising 40 week moving average of 1258 and also below the monthly pivot level of 1323. This market has held at the Fibonacci 38.2% retracement level of 1249, measured from the July 2016 high of 1374.91 to the November 2015 low of 1045.85. However the lack of upside retracement attempts since then suggests that more downside is on the agenda. Downside targets from here are the Fibonacci 50% retracement level at 1210 and thereafter the 61.8% retracement level at 1171.55.
