Hong Kong: HANG SENG INDEX (.HSI) investors mulled the pending G-20 meeting
The Hong Kong Hang Seng Index traded evenly and fell slightly on Tuesday, shrugging off positive Wall Street cues as investors mulled the pending G-20 meeting and the prospects for higher interest rates in the US. President Donald Trump is expected to meet with China President Xi Jinping on the sidelines Saturday at the economic summit. Tech issues rallied, but not enough to overcome the market mood, said analysts.
The broad gauge Hang Seng fell 44.22, or 0.17% to 26,331.96.
Leading the upside were Apple ( AAPL )-supplier AAC Technologies (2018:HK), up 3.0%, followed by Sunny Optical Technology (2382:Tokyo), up 2.5%, and then internet-media giant and index heavyweight Tencent (700:HK), up 1.9%.
Overall, the bias in prices is: Downwards.
The projected upper bound is: 27,456.60.
The projected lower bound is: 25,180.02.
The projected closing price is: 26,318.31.
A black body occurred (because prices closed lower than they opened).
During the past 10 bars, there have been 5 white candles and 5 black candles. During the past 50 bars, there have been 23 white candles and 27 black candles for a net of 4 black candles.
A long lower shadow occurred. This is typically a bullish signal (particularly when it occurs near a low price level, at a support level, or when the security is oversold).
A spinning top occurred (a spinning top is a candle with a small real body). Spinning tops identify a session in which there is little price action (as defined by the difference between the open and the close). During a rally or near new highs, a spinning top can be a sign that prices are losing momentum and the bulls may be in trouble.

Commodity Channel Index (CCI)
The CCI shows overbought (above 100) and oversold (below -100) areas. The current value of the CCI is 106.This is an overbought reading. However, a signal isn’t generated until the indicator crosses below 100. The last signal was a sell 13 period(s) ago.
