Optimistic tone over US/China trade talks (President Trump signaled possible 60-day extension from 1 Mar deadline) underpins the action Bullish techs also support, but strongly overbought stochastic (not firmer reversal signal yet) warns that bulls may face strong headwinds here. Dip- buying would be favored while corrective dips hold above 110.20 zone (broken Fibo 61.8%, reinforced by rising 10SMA).
