JB Hi-Fi: Looking Grim

By Michael Gable 

After the US Federal Reserve raised rates last week, we managed to get a one-day bounce on the S&P500 Index, before it failed to follow through on the upside.

This has of course put the US markets on a more negative footing, and the overnight fall to new lows is further confirming that we need to be prepared for some more downside in indices. Targeting support levels is meaningless at the moment, we just need to continue to observe price action and let the market tell us when it is finding some good support.

If we do lead into a capitulation, then these support levels may come in sooner than expected.

For this week's research we have analysed JB Hi-Fi ((JBH)).

Over the past year, JBH has been range bound between about $43.50 and $54.00. A few weeks ago, it managed to break above resistance, but it failed straight away and was back into the range.

With it then failing to quickly recover, and looking at the way it has started to sharply come back these past few days, the odds are that it heads back towards support near $43.50. A break under that level would be a negative sign.
