The Hong Kong market’s most followed barometer, the Hang Seng Index (HSI) fell below its 200-day moving average on July 8, 2021, and has continuously weakened since then, despite temporary rebounds now and again. As the HSI fell below its 200-day moving average, it also broke below a thrice tested support at the 27,700 to 27,800 range. The break below this support indicates a downside of 24,400 to 24,500. This has yet to be met and remains valid. The HSI tested a low of 25,086 before rebounding.
