SMI December 04th Alternative Daily Chart
The chart above is an alternative view for SMI. As the index did not reach our minimum target at 12852.67, it is still possible to think in an ending diagonal to complete the cycle. For this we need 2 more slighly highs to complete the pattern and hit our target. If this scenario happens, the structure can reject market very strong to the downside; thus, keep in mind this in your future trades.
