Aspen Pharmacare Holdings Ltd: Recovery pending

BOTTOM LINE: APN is consolidating within its major bear trend

Possible scenario:

APN is currently testing the lower slope of its symmetrical triangle. Its trading range may narrow as it trades towards the apex. The 3-week RSI is also oscillating within a triangle, and has bounced on the lower slope.

A positive breakout of the pattern would be confirmed above 30,225cps, and should trigger gains to either the resistance trendline of APNs bear trend, or the 34,700cps level – so go long above 30,225cps.

Alternative scenario:

A negative breakout of the symmetrical triangle would be confirmed below 26,265cps – in that case, go short. Downsides towards 21,230cps could then ensue.
