The local market took a breather yesterday closing slightly down before a strong rally today. We sold the remaining half of the ASX 200 cfd’s late on Friday before the weekend. A retracement down to the old highs could be seen as a consolidation move before a further upswing. Some analysts suggest the market is way overvalued, time will tell how far this rally goes.

People forget how far a market can move before the eventual downturn comes. The last two legs up are shown in the chart below with a line up from the last low showing the 36 per cent rally target. On the other side of the coin price looks to be extended within the weekly channel lines shown last week.

We bought a parcel of Appen when prices moved higher on Thursday and it has already reached a possible resistance zone.

 

We sold a portion of the Orocobre shares to lock in some profit as price again moved down below a level of resistance. Prices could churn around these levels for some time before a new break higher. Watching.

EML Payments is one share on the radar of a few analysts for 2020. A retracement down to the current trend line could bring with it some trading possibilities. Trading on big multiples if the stock disappoints at earnings time price could be downgraded quickly.

NextDC has moved above resistance.

Could Oz Minerals be posturing for another leg higher and will it present some interesting trading possibilities?

Mesoblast has an interesting looking chart.

Wagner’s has moved down to a possible support zone.
