Newcrest: Ready To Rally?

Technicals | Jun 23 2020

By Michael Gable 

In the last few days, we have seen the share market settle down a little in comparison to the volatility being experienced over a week ago. As mentioned last week, price action in our market has indicated that the upside run is over for the time being and it is best to wait and see what it wants to do from here. Our indication last week was that at best we trade sideways for a while, otherwise the risk is to the downside. For the moment we appear to be taking the "at best" approach with the market tracking sideways during the last few days. For now, that means a trading range under 6000 on the S&P/ASX 200.

In the meantime, today we look at Newcrest Mining ((NCM)).

During the last month, NCM had underperformed the market, peaking in mid May and not making any progress since then. Now, however, it looks like it is ready to rally once more by breaking what appears to be resistance (circled). There will be further resistance nearby at $32, so ideally, we would like to see it close above that level to feel more confident that there will be further upside. A push back under $30 would be viewed as a negative.
