Monday 25 March 2024, 06h30 | ABG Absa Group | The candle structure reflects strong selling pressure and the trend is down. While we do not attempt to catch/call the exact bottom, we can prepare ourselves for when the candle structure improves which could signal a potential short term bullish reversal. Here’s what to note:  (1) High Bearish Momentum/Approaching Oversold (2) Buy alerts on two time frames (short term & medium term) - see the Tactical Trading Guide below:

Monday 25 March 2024, 06h30 | MRP Mr Price - There are early signs of weakening candle structure. This is developing at/near a multi-month supply range. In addition, the 14-day RSI is printing a negative divergence which is often a precursor to a price decline. The reward-to-risk favours a potential downside reversal.

Monday 25 March 2024, 06h30 | Candlestick Formations form part of technical price charts, which are are used by market participants to interpret current demand-supply dynamics, potential price trends as well as form decisions from these inferences. The tables below highlight the following: (1) The share code (2) the candle's 'change from open’ (over 1 session) i.e. from the start of the first hour of the trading day to the end of the last hour of the trading day'. This is used to determine the strength/weakness of the candle formation i.e. the greater (+) the percentage, the stronger the candle formation and the weaker (-) the percentage, the weaker the candle formation and (3) the share's short term technical rating i.e. which phase the share is in over a 7 day period.
