Rebound For Sirtex

Technicals | Dec 13 2016

By Michael Gable 

The S&P/ASX 200 Index continues to grind higher and it was nice to see some midcap names join the party a little last week. As highlighted last week, stocks that trade at a premium to market are still not seeing much buying yet. The focus continues to be on the cyclical names. This week we have had a look at the Sirtex Medical ((SRX)) chart after last week's fall.


SRX may move around here, so we will be neutral for now, but if it can hold these levels then we would expect a rally and then we can turn positive. Firstly, it seems to have made a large 3-wave flat correction since hitting that high in early 2015. When SRX managed to retest that high later in the year and slightly surpass it, it then encountered some selling. What we have now seen is SRX go to a marginally new high and then fail, and last week has seen it go to a marginally new low (circled on the chart and indicated by exceeding the horizontal lines). This means that the downside target has possibly been achieved and SRX may well go on to rally again from here.
