Learning from the Past Week: (click here for the post)
A Pullback week - sees the Index get back to a new high.
MVWAP again provides the support.
Oscillator continues to tick up.

Looking Forward into the next Week:
Bears have flattened the Tenkan Sen - making its Bullish cross above the Kijun Sen, a little tougher.
A steeper rate of climb from the Bulls would correct this.
One also should watch the action of the Chikou Span in the coming week - for a dip towards the price line.
The preposterous quantum of divergence, developing on the Oscillator - is a concern, for the Bulls.
