Steinhoff International Holdings Ltd: Close Shorts
18 January 2017 | Moxima Gama

BOTTOM LINE: SNH confirmed a double-top pattern below 7,750cps in October 2016. It then formed a symmetrical triangle and negatively broke out below 6,215cps, triggering a sell signal.

Possible scenario:

SNH has reversed a few points away from our target at 5,050cps. With the 3-week RSI attempting to recover from a mega-oversold position, we advise investors to close short positions. However, a reversal below 6,215cps would present another short opportunity.

Alternative scenario:

Gains through 6,215cps would mark a change in bearish sentiment - triggering a neutral long, with the first target situated at 6,950cps. In this case, stay long on continued upside as the next resistance at 7,750cps may well be tested.
