3 November 2017 | Moxima Gama

BOTTOM LINE: BAW has been forming a long-term inverted head and shoulders pattern.

Possible scenario:

Currently teetering on the neckline of the pattern, a positive breakout of the pattern would be confirmed above 13,910cps - in this case, go long. However, the 3-week RSI must simultaneously breach the upper slope of its triangle to validate the breakout on the price chart. Thereafter, BAW would form new highs, with its short-term target situated at 18,035cps.

Alternative scenario:

A reversal through the blue dashed trendline would mark defeat, potentially triggering a short signal below 11,960cps. A downside to 10,500cps could ensue at first, and then to 9,260cps on continued selling.
