Fortescue: Recovery Underway?

Technicals | Mar 30 2021


By Michael Gable 

The S&P500 Index is breaking to new highs but our local market continues to be range bound. Although on occasions it has appeared poised to get moving again, we can't be too confident until it smashes past the February peak. There are still some opportunities under the surface though. The larger mining stocks seem to be making a move here, the strongest being Fortescue Metals Group ((FMG)), so we have included a chart of that into today's research.

The decline in FMG appears to be over for now. FMG fell under $20 a week ago and volumes picked up as there were likely a number of retail stop-losses at that level. However, the share price managed to find strong support near $19 and the trading range tightened up for a few days. Last Friday it then launched higher, closing near its highs and repeating that feat again yesterday. We also have a buy signal on the daily MACD (circled). All of this is telling us that we are likely to get a recovery here in the share price and current levels are therefore a buying opportunity.
