Share markets continue to struggle in making any headway here. In terms of the S&P500 Index, 3000 points seems to be the level to watch out for. A close under that could trigger further selling. Until then, we seem to have an upper limit near 3140 that it has been unable to break through. At the moment, we do not have any clear signs that share markets will head higher and that means that we have to maintain our more cautious bias.
In this week's report we have analysed NextDC ((NXT)).
We recently looked at NXT on 10 March when it was trading at $8.04 and noted that "the chart looks very bullish here, even more so against a backdrop of falling markets. It is likely to ease back here in the short term due to market fear, but once that is over, NXT should then be able to trade to new highs." We can see that on an intraday basis, it made a new high in early April before consolidating again. This consolidation appears to be in the form of an ascending triangle (blue lines).
The last few days has seen NXT make a new high on a closing basis. Even if it comes back into the range here in the short term, with support near $9.00, the overall trend continues to look strong with NXT forming higher highs and lows. Any dips would therefore be a buying opportunity.
