Harmony Gold Mining Ltd: A Recovery Is Underway

BOTTOM LINE: HAR has breached the resistance trend-line of its short-term bear trend


Possible scenario:

Because resistance was encountered at 3,550cps, a positive breakout of the bear trend was confirmed above that level. However, the 3-day RSI is currently overbought and could trigger a near-term reversal.

Support held firmly at 3,300cps or above 3,015cps should see HAR reclaim its losses through our buying level at 3,550cps once again. So, increase positions above 3,955cps, and an upside to 4,575cps could then follow. Watch stop losses carefully with this trade because HAR is highly correlated to the Gold spot and can therefore be very volatile.

Alternative scenario:

The bear trend would extend below 3,015cps, potentially retesting support at 2,585cps.
