Newcrest Mining (NCM) – Deterioration in momentum
In our last update on August 9, 2019 we discussed the overbought nature of the stock and the likelihood of the short term upside to be limited.
The rally lost momentum over the past month and a double top pattern has formed on the daily chart.
The daily momentum conditions deteriorated and weekly momentum indicators remain overbought.
This suggests that further weakness could be seen in the near term.
A break below support of $34.05 would confirm the double top pattern and is likely to trigger a deeper pull back to $31.00.
Sydney Airport (SYD) – Deterioration in momentum
SYD has been trading in a strong up trend since January 2019 which is still technically intact.
A lower high has formed on the daily chart showing that the sellers are increasingly taking profits around $8.60.
The medium term up trend line drawn from the February 2019 low has been broken on Tuesday showing that the up trend is deteriorating.
The weekly MACD indicator is in overbought territory suggesting that the rally is likely to take a breather in the near term.
We see a good probability f the price trading between $7.60 and $8.40 in the coming month(s).
Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) – Bearish breakout
In our last update on August 16, 2019 we discussed the overbought nature of the stock and the likelihood of the price breaking below support of $82.73.
On Wednesday the price broke below support on a closing basis suggesting that a deeper pull back is likely to unfold in the weeks ahead.
The initial downside price target based on the breakout is $76.00.
Mirvac Group (MGR) – Bearish breakout
MGR has been trading in a strong up trend since January 2019 which now appears to be reversing direction.
A large bearish divergence between the price and the RSI indicator has formed throughout May and August 2019 warning that momentum is deteriorating.
Earlier in the week the RSI broke below its bull market range support at 40% suggesting that a secondary correction is likely to take place.
Last week’s price action broke below support of $3.09 suggesting that a top is now in place.
The initial downside price target based on the breakout is $2.80, however this level could be exceeded.
Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield (URW) – Improvement in momentum
URW has been trading in a down trend since listing which is still technically intact.
The stock significantly underperformed its peers and we now see the first tentative signs of improvement in momentum.
On Wednesday the RSI indicator broke above its resistance suggesting that the price is likely to rebound to its long term down trend line crossing at $10.80.
A break above the down trend line would be the first bullish sign with long term implications and is likely to trigger a rally to $11.30.
