Kumba Iron Ore Ltd: Anticipating A Breakout

BOTTOM LINE: KIO could resume its previous bull trend

Possible scenario:

KIO is a few points away from the 23,130cps major resistance level. With the 3-week RSI slightly overbought, KIO may encounter resistance there once again, but if support is retained above 17,935cps, that major level would be breached. Failing this, KIO could trade through 23,130cps irrespective of the RSI – which would then remain overbought for an extended period.

A neutral long could be initiated above that level, with increments at every resistance level breakout, and the upside target would be at 28,500cps.

Alternative scenario:

A reversal through 17,935cps could see KIO retest the 13,900cps key support mark. It should bounce there, or else support at 11,200cps could be retested.
