Wesfarmers: Low In Place

By Michael Gable 

In our report last week, we commented on the S&P500 Index getting close to some sort of resolution. It needed to break the downtrend line, or give us one final capitulation.

Given the bullish divergence that we highlighted last week, the S&P500 followed the most likely route, which was an upside break through the downtrend line. We may get some sideways consolidation here for a few days, but the overall picture for markets has now flipped to being positive and we would expect a recovery from here.

Today's report has analysis of Wesfarmers ((WES)).

We reviewed the WES chart three weeks ago and made the following comment at the time: "WES has now retraced nearly 50% of the 2020 – 2021 rally. Forty eight dollars is an obvious support level where it now appears as though WES is finding a base and good volumes are coming back into the stock. We also have some bullish divergence on the daily RSI (diagonal lines). There is therefore a strong chance that this is either the low or very close to the low for WES and we expect a recovery from here in the share price. Current levels are a buying opportunity."

Since then, we have continued to see WES edge higher. In the last few days, it has also pushed beyond resistance near $50. We are therefore still confident that a low is in place for WES. For now, it might just ease sideways in the short term before it is ready to push higher again.
