Remgro has been a bastion of stability amid the market turmoil of recent weeks. Moreover, its price appears to be consolidating before a bullish breakout. We show a target for it, once the breakout occurs.
Remgro – Price breakout imminent?
Recommendation: Prepare to buy
Trend: Short and medium term sideways. Long term up.
Strategy: Buy on a breakout above line 3.
n Remgro is currently moving sideways in an ascending triangle (lines 2 and 3). Ascending triangles typically break out to the upside.
n The price has moved up from line 1 support that goes back 10 months. It is testing line 3 resistance at the time of writing.
n The moving average convergence-divergence oscillator (on top) has broken its own resistance line (line 4), which is an early bullish sign.
n Buy it on a breakout and close above line 3 resistance (R135.75). More aggressive traders to buy if it pulls back to line 1 (R130.80) before the breakout.
n Once it breaks above line 3, it will activate a minimum target to R144, based on the size of the triangle (lines 2 and 3).
n Place your initial stop loss as close below R130. When it gets to R141, move your stop up to below R134.40.
