BOTTOM LINE: VOD confirmed a bullish reversal pattern

After breaching the neckline of its inverted head-and-shoulders pattern and confirming a positive breakout above 15,975cps, VOD surged and exceeded our first target situated at 18,100cps. With the 3-week RSI in mega-overbought territory and VOD almost testing the upper slope of its channel - which it has failed to breach a few times - a near-term correction is pending.
We recommend investors revise and possibly close long positions once the RSI ticks downwards. If the RSI remains bullish, and VOD holds at 16,775cps, another buying opportunity would be presented.
A downside through 16,775cps could see VOD retrace further, to either the red bold trendline or the 15,530cps support level.
