TECHNICAL ANALYSIS: Standard Bank shares on the build up to new upside breakout

Apr 10 2019 12:53
Colin Abrams

Standard Bank (Stanbank) is the leader of the banking stocks at the moment. Its price chart shows it building up for a new upside breakout.

STANBANK (SBK) – Higher target

Recommendation: BUY

Current Trend: Short-term sideways. Med-term up.

Strategy: Buy on either a minor pullback e.g. to R188, and/or on a breakout.

Chart Setup: Stanbank has a higher target from an inverse head and shoulders (labelled S-H-S). It is currently in a broadening formation (lines 2 and 3), and is likely to break out to the upside.

  • Its short-term Stochastic is overbought so a minor (and temporary) pullback is possible.

(Daily chart)

SBK shares

Strategy Details: Buy either a minor pullback e.g. to R188, or buy a close above line 3 (above R198.00). Do whichever happens first. 

Target: Both chart patterns are pointing to the same target at R217, based on the size of the patterns. 

Stop-loss: A close below line 1 i.e. R179.50 if buying on a pullback. For buying the breakout, it’s a close below R185.50.
