However, the following week saw that price close below and between the M resistance and Weekly Support (Tenken Sen) . Until it breaks this level, it will ping pong between the weekly Support and monthly resistance.

Next, we head down to the Dialy time frame. Below is the Daily STI index based on esignal chart:

As you can see the pull back on 18 May to the Daily Kijun Sen syncs with the Weekly Tenken Sen.  It is in a trend continuation mode. However, momentum will be getting weak by next week, and this will lower its bullish probability.  And the next target is around 3252.18, which is the Monthly Resistance.
