BOTTOM LINE: MTN has been range bound between 15,650cps and 10,475cps

Possible scenario:

After maintaining support at 10,475cps, MTN breached the resistance trend-line of its medium-term bear trend and is now consolidating between 13,500cps and 10,955cps. As MTN approaches the 13,500cps pivotal point, we expect gains through that level to prompt further gains to the next major resistance mark at 15,650cps.

If the 3-week RSI continues to form rising bottoms, upside through 13,500cps would be possible - so go long when the 3-day RSI is not overbought.

Alternative scenario:

A reversal below 10,955cps would place the 10,475cps key support mark back into the spotlight, but failure to hold there would extend a medium-term downside through 9,500cps.
