Second Time Lucky For Afterpay?

Technicals | Jun 08 2021

This story features AFTERPAY LIMITED. For more info SHARE ANALYSIS: APT

By Michael Gable 

As mentioned last week, the Australian share market should just continue to grind higher from here, now that it has pushed to new highs. In terms of individual sectors, there continues to be a lack of consistency and the comment "it’s a funny market" is being heard quite often. However, we still remain bullish on cyclicals such as resources, financials, etc, and one such sector has had a nice bounce in the last week – energy.

In the US, the Nasdaq seems to be holding up fairly well and bouncing off its 100-day moving average. Whilst risks still remain in the tech space, we have taken a look at the chart of Afterpay ((APT)).

Until early May, $100 was a strong support level for APT. It then fell through that a few weeks ago before trying to rally again. That rally fell short at $100, but instead of being sold off sharply, APT shares have only drifted sideways instead. This is potentially a positive and it could mean that APT is getting ready to make another move above $100. For now, it is worth keeping on the watchlist as a possible trade on any break above $100.
