Sappi Ltd: Should Test Its Upside Target Soon

BOTTOM LINE: SAP has confirmed an ascending triangle breakout


Trade Sappi from 0.3%

Possible scenario:

SAP has maintained its uptrend since breaching the horizontal slope of its ascending triangle above 7,700cps, as well as the 7,945cps major resistance level. Further gains through 9,350cps could see SAP rapidly test our target at 9,625cps. The 3-week RSI is currently overbought and may trigger a near-term pull-back.

If support holds firmly at 7,945cps the current uptrend would remain intact, and we recommend investors stay long.

Alternative scenario:

A negative breakout of the bull trend would be confirmed below 7,435cps. Alarm bells should sound below 7,945cps, so close positions as a downside to 5,775cps could then follow.
