Incitec Pivot In The Spotlight

Technicals | Apr 05 2022

This story features INCITEC PIVOT LIMITED. For more info SHARE ANALYSIS: IPL

With fertiliser prices soaring due to Russian sanctions, Michael Gable of Fairmont Equities assesses the technicals for Incitec Pivot.

By Michael Gable 

We have reached a stage where share markets here and in the US have recovered most of their recent declines.

Naturally they will need to take a breather from here. However, the strength of the recent bounce is a positive sign. It means that any consolidation here is unlikely to see markets dip back to the lows from several weeks ago. The Australian share market is, for once, outperforming the US, and of course this is because of Australian resources.

It seems as though anything outside of resources is easing back now but the resource stocks haven't got the memo yet. Lithium stocks in particular seem to be extending their run. This week we look at Incitec Pivot ((IPL)).

Our previous comment on the IPL chart on 1 February noted that we were looking at a dip to $3.00 as a better buying opportunity. Since then, it managed to rally off support and break to new highs.

There is some long-term resistance at $4.00, so it is natural to see the share price ease back from those levels. For IPL to make an attempt at breaking through $4.00, this current pullback needs to be fairly shallow.

Ideally, we would like to see IPL ease back towards $3.60 and hold that level. That would then provide the next opportunity to enter IPL. Any sharp falls under $3.60 without a bounce-back would be a negative sign.
