Xero In Focus

By Michael Gable 

The past week on the market ended up being more negative than we suspected.

The S&P500 Index has pulled back to retest its 200-day Moving Average, and the S&P/ASX 200 Index has tested major support near 7200. That 7200 level is the 50% retracement region of the January rally and it also sits on the uptrend line that has been in place since the October low.

It will be interesting to see if we get some support here in the next few days because that would open up a new set of buying opportunities.

There are not many clear buying set-ups right now because of the recent weakness. However, we do see some stocks that are getting close to giving a buy signal, and we have a chart today on Xero ((XRO)).

XRO appears to be forming a base here.

We have seen higher lows since November and the start of February saw it break above resistance on good volume. It is now easing back to retest that breakout.

If we can see buying support step in here and XRO can push above its February high of $85.50 in a quick amount of time, then we can treat that as a buy signal.

For the moment, XRO is one to keep an eye on.
