BHP For Christmas

Technicals | Dec 17 2019

By Michael Gable 

Yesterday was a fantastic day for the Australian share market and we look set to make new highs again, only a few weeks since the last record-breaking level. We have been bullish on the US and Australian share markets for several weeks now and we expect the rally to continue into 2020. Certain sectors and stocks will take the lion's share of gains next year.

One example is materials and energy. A few months ago, we explained that movements in those sectors were giving us clues that they were likely to head much higher. Continuing on from that theme, we have a chart in today's report on BHP Group ((BHP)).

Our most recent BHP chart was on 25 November when we commented that it continued to look bullish and that it should retest $40. This monthly chart shows the longer-term prospects for BHP. In the last several years, there was major resistance near $35.00. As we forewarned over 12 months ago, BHP was poised to burst through that and rally to over $40.00. It is now clear, looking at the monthly chart, that the pullback during the last few months has found very good support near the old resistance level of $35.00. With that level of support now providing a springboard for BHP, we expect it to push past the 2019 high and rally towards $45.00 during the first half of 2020.
