By Michael Gable
The Australian share market has bounced well after the dip from mid last week.
As we noted in last week's report, sentiment around resources and iron ore, in our opinion, resembles the peak bearishness from November 2022.
That led to a big turnaround in the miners. As we saw last week, the miners were dumped in the middle of the week, only to recover strongly. This could therefore be the start of a new move higher and we still remain positive on the major miners right here.
So to reiterate, some of our recent picks, stocks such as BHP Group ((BHP)), Fortescue Metals ((FMG)), Rio Tinto ((RIO)), Lynas Rare Earths ((LYC)), Sandfire Resources ((SFR)) and Worley ((WOR)) still remain at attractive buy levels.
US markets continue to trend well for now, but because of recent weakness in the miners, the Australian market has under-performed these past several weeks. Today's report has a chart of the S&P/ASX 200 Index to highlight what we are seeing at the moment.
The index has formed a bull-flag after peaking in mid-April. It may hug the underneath of the upper blue line for a couple of days, but the most likely move after that is an upside break.
That is, a daily close up over about 7250 would signify the start of the next run higher. That should lead to a retest of the 7500 – 7600 area.
A downside break under 7100, however, would have us targeting levels back near 6950.
