Wesfarmers: Buy The Dip

Technicals | Jul 20 2021

This story features WESFARMERS LIMITED. For more info SHARE ANALYSIS: WES

By Michael Gable 

US share markets have had a rough couple of sessions and this has seen the S&P 500 Index come back to the 50-day moving average. It tends to respect this level fairly well, so it will be interesting to see what happens tonight – whether it bounces off that level, or falls through it. Clearly, a break under that would be a negative for markets so our advice is to keep an eye on what happens tonight. It may well bounce off that, so it is too early to get bearish, we just need that extra day or so to see how it trades. Domestically, the S&P/ASX 200 Index is likely to breach that today. It has been trading sideways for the last several weeks but all the while it has remained in an uptrend. Price action in the next day or so again will therefore tell us whether to become bearish on the local index or not.

In terms of today's research, we have analysed Wesfarmers ((WES)).

We turned positive on WES at the start of June as we noticed the upside break out of the cup and handle formation. The last few weeks has seen the share price consolidate once more and yesterday's push higher indicates that once again it is ready to head higher. However, on any market weakness, we would be targeting support levels near $58 and $56, the latter would need to hold for the overall chart to remain bullish.
