Rio Tinto: Low In Place

This story features RIO TINTO LIMITED. For more info SHARE ANALYSIS: RIO

By Michael Gable 

We continue to maintain our positive bias to the market here. Last week, we spoke of the US dollar index looking toppy, and a fall in the US dollar index would be a tailwind for commodities, including gold. We are seeing continued support for commodity stocks here, especially in the last couple of days, and therefore this is a sector to be overweight in.

Today we have a chart on Rio Tinto ((RIO)).

After the March peak, RIO trended lower and the daily volatility was quite large. In the past few weeks, however, we have seen volatility die down as RIO started to form a small base.

Yesterday, it managed to nudge above that range and this therefore looks like a low is in place and current levels are a buying opportunity. A close above $100 will be further confirmation that RIO is ready to recover from here.
