Woolworths (WOW) - Overbought
WOW has been trading in a primary up trend since July 2016 which is still technically intact.
The monthly, weekly and daily momentum indicators have reached overbought territory suggesting that the stock is vulnerable to at least a pull back in the short term.
The initial downside price target is $39.00. While at this juncture in time, we don’t see reversal signs of the primary up trend, given the monthly overbought momentum readings, we are of the view that the up trend is likely to take a breather and the upside from here is minimal.
Wesfarmers (WES) - Overbought
WES has been trading in a strong up trend since December 2018 which is still technically intact.
The monthly, weekly and daily momentum readings have reached overbought territory suggesting that the upside from here is likely to be limited and that the stock is vulnerable to a pull back in the short term.
Although, at this point there is no reversal signal on the chart, we see the current share price strength as an opportunity for active traders to lighten positions.
Coles Group (COL) - Overbought
COL has been trading in a strong up trend since March 2019 which is still technically intact.
The current short term up swing posted an all-time high of $16.69, slightly surpassing its November 2019 peak.
Thursday’s price action formed a bearish engulfing candle close to its previous resistance, suggesting that there is high probability of the price declining in the short term.
The RSI and the MACD indicators have reached overbought territory suggesting that the price is likely to pull back from here.
The potential downside price target is $15.25.
Challenger Financial Svcs (CGF) – At resistance
The down trend from the December 2017 high has lost momentum over the past seven months and the price has been trading sideways, fluctuating between $6.22 and $8.84.
The current medium term rally is still in progress and is likely to fill the gap.
This means the price could rise further to $9.15 in the near term.
Although, at this point there is no reversal signal evident on the chart, given the proximity to overbought momentum levels on the weekly and daily charts, at current price levels we rate the stock as a hold.
Redbubble (RBL) – At support
RBL has been trading sideways over the past two years, fluctuating between $0.82 and $2.08.
The current downswing retraced close to its key support which appears solid and is likely to hold.
Over the past month, the price action appears to be in the process of building a small base and we see a good probability of the price rising in the near term.
The first potential upside price target is $1.10, followed by $1.20.
