Kumba Iron Ore Ltd: Further Gains Are Underway

BOTTOM LINE: KIO has broken out of its long-term bear trend

Possible scenario:

We had recommended a long position in November last year, and KIO confirmed a positive breakout of its inverted head and shoulders pattern above 13,300cps. After testing our first target at 17,710cps, we suggested investors close positions because the 3-week RSI was overbought – and then go long on a recovery.

Our second target was at 19,965cps, and KIO is trading above that level. Despite the overbought RSI, we expect KIO to trade towards 25,835cps, so stay long or go long.

Alternative scenario:

Close positions on a reversal below 15,260cps. Downside to – and possibly through – 13,300cps could ensue.
