➡️ Tuesday 05-March-2024, 06h30 | Brent Crude Oil | Update: For clients, trading oil been profitable with the commodity closing at it’s best level since November. The idea on 07-Decmber was to add back risk, following a SELL in September. At current levels, oil is trading a flat 200-day moving average (currently above it). This follows several tests since November to break above the closely-watched moving average. The most visible resistance has been around the 84.15/84.25 level, with several attempts to clear this level. The aforementioned resistance is also in line with the 50% Fibonacci retracement zone while the 61.8% retracement is around $86.93.

BVT Bidvest Group: Strong Rally On Results - Was There A Signal? (Reading Time: 2-Minutes)

  • Key Point: The Tactical Trading Guide Serves As Useful Tool For Active Traders


Did you know that as a client of Unum Capital, you are able to make use of the various trading tools and data points to support your decision-making process.


One of these tools is the Tactical Trading Guide, which helps clients determine and shed light on the following:


➜ Whether the reward-to-risk is attractive for a buy/long position?.


➜ Whether a share is weak or if aggressive buying is underway.


➜ Whether a trader can look to buy a pullback into a key moving average (continuation trade).


➜ Whether a share needs to break a range for a new trend to be determined (bullish or bearish).


➜ Whether a traders needs to monitor for a change of character that could lead to a bullish or bearish reversal.


➜ Whether a share could start a consolidation phase.


➜ Whether the upward momentum is slowing (if it's in a bullish phase).


➜ Whether buyers can look to 'phase in' to a position (if it's in a bearish phase).


➜ Whether a share lacks directional bias.  


I will admit that I did not discuss Bidvest at or near the recent lows, however, the share was included in the daily publications of the Tactical Trading Guide, which does provide a reading for each share across 3 time frames.


Yesterday’s rally piqued my interest which naturally caused me to check whether the tool gave us a signal at or near the lows.


These were the key data points:


The share’s most recent lows were Thursday 08-February and Friday 09-February.


On 08-February, the share fell by 2.3%, with a large red candle reflecting the selling pressure.


On that day, what were the end of day readings for the various time frames?


SHORT TERM (1 to 10 days): “Aggressive selling recently, however the buy/long reward-to-risk may be attractive 


MEDIUM TERM (1 to 10 days): “The share has been sold aggressively. Look for a continued dip (decline) before a minor rebound


LONG TERM (1 to 10 days): “Broadly, a weak to sideways consolidation. The share has recently been sold (has come under selling pressure). Expect a small rebound


As we can see, the 3 time frames indicated that the there was strong potential for a rebound, which subsequently took place as the share rallied from R226 to R258 in under a month.


While this tool was not built with new-age technology (e.g. AI) and is not supported or maintained by modern computer code, it does remain an effective tool to help you gain insights into potential trading opportunities.


Below are the time-stamped readings followed by the share’s price chart.
