Bidcorp rally runs out of steam

Bidcorp’s upside breakout failed as the R320 area limited advances for the third time since it first hit it in 2017. The share price has pulled back over 3% with further advances unlikely, investors should look to lock in profits as the share price is on a standard deviation of 2.4. This signals a pullback is likely, and a retracement has started.

As you can see in the below chart, a pull back should find support around the R282.50 level. A longer-term target would be at R252.50

Bidcorp Share Price JSE

Sell Bidcorp above R315.00, traders can short the share above R315.00 and make around 10% profit as it falls to the R285 area.
