JOHANNESBURG - Netcare has broken out above its medium-term resistance level (red line) after declining again since May. 

This is a positive sign and points to some sort of bottom.

It’s a buy at current levels for the short term at least and perhaps longer.

I’m looking for an initial rally to R27.90 for partial profit-taking and then more at R28.70.

Protect positions with a close below R23.90 to exit. Once the price closes above R27.50, move that exit (stop) level up to a closing price below R25.20.
