Pretoria Portland Cement Ltd: Positive Breakout

BOTTOM LINE: PPC is teetering on the resistance trendline of its medium-term bear trend

Possible scenario:

After dipping to 345cps, PPC has regained sharp upside and may confirm a positive breakout of its bear trend at a close above 525cps. In this case, go long.

The 3-day RSI is currently correcting from a mega-overbought position, and support retained above 455cps would be bullish. Once a positive breakout is confirmed, gains to 625cps could follow. 

Alternative scenario:

PPC would resume its bear trend through 455cps, and below 400cps, it would retest its prior low at 345cps.
