Temple & Webster: Never Mind The Gap

Technicals | Sep 01 2020


By Michael Gable 

The S&P 500 Index continues to trade at all-time highs and the Australian market only provides us with further false starts. Once we see the S&P/ASX 200 Index close at 6200 or higher, then we know we can commence the next leg of the rally. Until then, it is destined to track sideways. Although the US market may consolidate at some point soon, that won't necessarily lead to a big decline in our market.

If you think back to May 2019, the S&P 500 Index hit a new high and then declined about 6.5% during that month. Our market actually gained a little over 1% in that time. This means that there is scope for our market to hold in here, regardless of whether US markets consolidate or not.

In this week's report, we have a chart on Temple & Webster Group ((TPW)).

After rallying strong from late March to late July, TPW shares then traded sideways to consolidate the move. The last few days has seen it attempt to break higher again, with yesterday's gap up on good volume confirming that the uptrend for TPW is back on. This breakout is therefore a buying opportunity and investors can run a trailing stop.
