BOTTOM LINE: VOD traded through the lower slope of its long-term bull channel

Trade VOD From 0.3%

Possible scenario:

After retaining support at 13,500cps, VOD recovered some of its losses - even returning to its bull channel and trading through our buying level at 15,770cps. Such a move should prompt a 100% retracement to the 18,700cps prior high in the near to short-term, or the upper slope of the channel. Since the 3-day RSI is mega-overbought, however, we recommend investors refrain from going long until the RSI corrects and recovers.

Alternative scenario:

A downside through the blue bold trend-line could trigger a sell-off to towards the 13,500cps key mark. A negative breakout of the long-term bull channel would be confirmed through that level, so in that case, go short. A downside to the 11,145cps support level could then follow.
