This is somewhat extreme but watch how this Canadian couple chose financial independence over home ownership.  They are in their 30s and,...

Charts in brief: 8 Jun 10.

Tuesday, June 8, 2010

Golden Agriculture: Price tried to move higher today, only to close unchanged, forming a gravestone doji in the process. MFI has formed a higher low.  OBV is flat.  The MACD has risen above the signal line in negative territory.  Selling pressure has abated but it is obvious that the counter has broken its longer term uptrend as it has been trading below the 200dMA for many sessions now, unable to recapture support. The 20dMA is also poised to form a dead cross with the 200dMA. Further downside should find support at 44.5c as shown by Fibo lines.  This happens to be a gap support formed on 9 Nov 09 as well.  Immediate resistance is provided by the 200dMA at 51c and this coincides with the 78.6% Fibo line.

Healthway Medical:  News that Peter Lim became a substantial shareholder of Healthway Medical has given the share price a lift. Volume expanded today as price touched a high of 17.5c before closing at 17c. MFI is now testing 50% while OBV has risen. MACD continues to rise above the signal line in positive territory. There is no doubt that this counter is seeing a trend reversal. Continuing rise in price would find resistance at 18.5c.  Breaking 18.5c would suggest that we have seen a double bottom formation and would establish 13.5c as a very important support in future.  If 18.5c fails to be taken out, we might see a triple top formation.  In the meantime, congratulations to all who are still vested and do keep an eye out for any negative divergences.

AIMS AMP Capital Industrial REIT: A gravestone doji formed today as price closed at 21.5c. MACD has completed its turn downwards towards zero. OBV continues to decline suggesting distribution is taking place although a rising MFI suggests that positive buying momentum is still present.  I would accumulate on weakness.

CapitaMalls Asia:  Sell signal on the MACD histogram was confirmed today. MFI has been forming lower highs as volume shrank. The rebound in price has weakening technicals. I am inclined to believe that the symmetrical triangle would resolve itself on the downside.

NOL: Declining 20dMA is set to form a dead cross with the flat 100dMA.  Price has not been able to overcome resistance provided by the 100dMA on three recent occasions with the latest attempt three sessions ago looking tired. MFI formed a lower high after testing 50% as resistance a few sessions ago.  Since touching a low together with a low in price on 25 May, the OBV has been rising which suggests accumulation activity. This may well limit the downside for this counter.

Hi AK,

I'm vested in OCBC and I'm really perplexed at the price fluctuations the past week. How does one begin to analyze the TA in such a case?

Hi TS,

How does one begin to do TA for OCBC or any counter for that matter? Start by reading up on TA if you have not done so yet. ;)

If you have already read up on TA and found the ups and downs perplexing, try looking at the bigger picture. Look at the trendlines and look at the patterns. Looking at the former will show you that OCBC is in a downtrend and looking for patterns will find a head and shoulders pattern. Next, look at the MAs. OCBC is now trading below its 200dMA. Look at the weekly chart and we will see where the longer term supports are. Good luck. :)
