​Wednesday’s session briefly saw the index touch the highest level since the beginning of 2022. ​The surge from the 200-day SMA has witnessed a 13% gain for the index, breaking out of the summer descending channel and opening the way to more upside in the direction of the 2022 highs towards 16,600.

​Short-term support might be found around 15,500, the August highs, and then down towards the 100-day SMA.

Nikkei 225 reaches trendline resistance

​November’s rally has carried the index back to trendline resistance from the June highs.​There may be some volatility around this area, which is close to the September lower high, but a close above 33,700 would open the way to the 34,000 highs of June.

​​In the short-term, the mid-October highs around 32,500 might provide some support if a pullback develops.
