BOTTOM LINE: FSR corrected from the third phase of its bull trend in the form of a flag.

Possible scenario:

Having bounced on its second support trend-line, continued upside through 6,370cps would confirm a positive breakout of the pattern. However, with the 3W RSI in overbought territory, a near-term pullback is pending. If support holds above 5,760cps, another buying opportunity would be triggered through 6,370cps. The upside target would be at 7,725cps.

Alternative scenario:

A reversal below 5,760cps would extend the correction to either the grey bold trend-line, or the 4,325cps support level. In this instance, go short below 5,760cps.
