Discovery Holdings Ltd: Caution Advised

BOTTOM LINE: DSY’s current pull-back could be a mere correction after confirming its falling-wedge pattern

Possible scenario:

In July, we recommended a long above 13,620cps – then DSY confirmed a positive breakout of its falling-wedge pattern above that level. However, DSY is currently encountering resistance at 14,635cps, and the 3-day RSI is approaching the support trend-line of its short-term bull trend.

If the RSI retains its uptrend, DSY should breach the ceiling at 14,635cps, so in that case, increase long positions and head towards our target at 16,320cps.

Alternative scenario:

If the RSI turns bearish, DSY could retest the 14,160cps support mark. Failure to hold there may trigger further selling towards 13,620cps. In this instance, close long positions below 14,160cps. DSY could even retest the upper slope of its falling-wedge pattern.
