Opportunity To Buy Macquarie

Technicals | Apr 09 2019

By Michael Gable 

The Australian market continues to look well supported with resources once again doing the heavy lifting at the expense of the banks. RIO is now through $100 and BHP should shortly push through our $40 target. Despite oil prices hitting a 5-month high, energy stocks have been lagging for nearly two months now. It is a sector that we are looking to get back into when share prices have bottomed out, so stay tuned for that.

This week we present an update on a core stock for many of our trading clients – Macquarie Group ((MQG)).

Our most recent charting comment was in mid-February where we expected the shares to head higher. The stock looked a bit weak during mid-March as the overall market showed possible signs of peaking and MQG was rejecting the $130 level. However, a break of $130 in the last several days is now a sign that MQG wants to continue trending higher. At the moment it appears to be establishing the $130 level as a bit of a baseline. Therefore, current levels are a buying opportunity for anyone without exposure to MQG.
