Summary:  Hang Seng/HK50 caught range bound
China A50 in falling channel
JP225/Nikkei towards all-time high

Hang Seng Index is caught range bound between 17,000 and 18,200. Break out is needed for direction

RSI is showing negative sentiment indicating break out is likely to the down side. Hang Seng is also on the daily chart below the Cloud and below 100 DMA.

A close above 18,200 could fuel a swift bullish move to 18,900 resistance. The falling 200 DMA will add to the overhead resistance.

A close below 17K and HSI will quite likely resume downtrend with potential to Q4 2022 low around 15K

HK50 cfd range bound between 17K and 18,338. Break above 18,338 likely to fuel a rally to 18,910

Close below 17K the downtrend will resume

China A50 future is trading in a falling channel pattern and seems set to test the October low and support at around 11,585

For China A50 to reverse the bearish trend a close above 12,270 is needed.
If that reverse reversal scenario plays out move to around 12,720-12,930 would be in the cards

JP225 cfd (Nikkei225) has closed above resistance at around 33,484 and seems set for higher for higher levels.
RSI is in positive sentiment and the 55 DMA is close to breaking above the 100 DMA, and both are rising which is indicating an underlying bullish sentiment and trend.

JP225 could test June peak at around 34K but a move higher towards the all-time high around 38,195 going in to 2024 should not be ruled out

To reverse the bullish trend a 33K below is needed.
