TECHNICAL ANALYSIS: Telkom stocks prepare for buying opportunity

Jun 27 2019 17:27
Colin Abrams

Telkom is one of the leading stocks on the JSE at the moment (and has been this entire year). Right now it’s giving a short-term pullback to set up another buying opportunity. 

Telkom (TKG) – A buyable pullback

Recommendation: BUY

Current Trend: Up on all main timeframes.

Strategy: Buy from R90 or lower.

Chart Setup: Telkom has given a short-term breakdown from a symmetrical triangle (lines 2 and 3). This will lead to another good buying opportunity lower, closer to its 50-day moving average and line 1 support.

  • Its Stochastic is not quite oversold yet, so the price can still drift down for a couple more days.  

(Daily chart)

Chart sharpened

Strategy Details: Buy it at the R99.00 level or lower. (Line 1 support is at the R87.80 level). 

Target: After this pullback look for a short-term rally to R103 to take trading profits. Over the medium-term (three to six months) it can go quite a lot higher than that, e.g. to R130.

Stop-loss: A close below line 1 support (R87.80). Once it closes above R99.00, tighten the stop a lot e.g. to a close below R98.80.
