Kim Cramer Larsson
Technical Analyst, Saxo Bank
Summary: Leading Asia and Pacific markets are hit by heavy selling. Hang Seng being in rebound mode seems to hit hard resistance
Hang Seng seems to be rejected at the 76.4 retracement of the falling wedge pattern at around 25,030. If breaking above there is room up till around 25,746 possibly 26,214.
For Hang Seng to reverse the short term uptrend a close of gap is needed.
