06h30 | SBK Standard Bank | Recently (19-Feb) I highlighted data which showed both positive and negative aspects of the share. Included in this was the share price trading 37% above it’s 200-week SMA (technically extended by historical measures). From R208, the share has since retreated by 1200c to a low of R196 (last close 19735c). As per Friday’s Tactical Trading Guide, the readings for the 3 time frames are as follows:

Note the LONG TERM time frame (column to the far right) which states that the 50-week moving average could be a re-entry zone). At the last close, this level is at 18633c, however is subject to change.


06h30 | BVT Bidvest Group. Wednesday’s end of day reading from the tactical trading guide stated that the following: SHORT TERM (1-10 days) “Would not enter buy/long here. The buy/long reward-to-risk is unattractive”. MEDIUM TERM (2-4 weeks) “The general trend is up, however, look for failure to hold prior sessions highs to initiate a 1 to 2 day short/sell setup”. On Thursday the share printed a doji candle (indecision) followed by a bearish engulfing candle on Friday. The R261 to R263 range appears to be a resistance area while the 8-EMA (around R250) is a logical downside target as well as support zone.

06h30 | TECHNICAL SCREEN: Oversold Within A Strong Bearish Trend. See slide below:

06h30 | Higher Time Frames Tend To Dominate | While some shares appear in the SHORT TERM OVERBOUGHT category, it is also important to consider the higher trading time frames. Shares such as ADH, HAR and DCP have had massive moves however a share such as ARI is not as extended as the aforementioned and may have the ability to continue it’s move higher over the medium term. The focus in the data set below is on the LONG TERM TRADING TIME FRAME I.e, 5 to 8 weeks. Although they are all overbought over the last 7 trading sessions, Note the differences in readings.

06h30 | Speaking of African Rainbow Minerals (ARI)…we have seen strong upside follow-through from the 14-November view which looked for a channel break and change of trend. Was R167 at the time, recent high = R203 (02 January).
