Buying Opportunity In BlueScope

Technicals | Apr 02 2019

By Michael Gable 

The Australian market was looking a bit soft last week as everyone seemed to get worked up over yield curve inversions. The last couple of days has shown that the fear didn’t last too long and markets are looking bit more buoyant again. Our view is that the current movements in bonds is getting blown out of proportion. Good data out of China confirms our view that growth will keep humming along, which is why one of our favourite sectors, the resource sector, is turning around here and heading higher again.

This week’s report takes a look at an updated chart for Bluescope Steel ((BSL)).

Our recent comment on BSL was on 26 February, where we expected it to rally higher. Initially it went above $14.00 before stalling during the last few weeks. Price action in the last few weeks has been tightly contained above the important $13.00 level. It now looks like BSL is breaking free of this short-term range and it should now continue its march higher. Resistance is in the mid $15’s and then higher up near $17.00. Current levels still represent a buying opportunity.
