The bearish Trade View presented on July 8 concerning Swedish oil company Lundin Petroleum (LUPE:xome) has worked out about right, even though we aren't at the projected targets yet. It could be of interest to flip the position/stance into a bullish one, because if oil stocks have turned, longer term, this is an opportunity.
Since the peak set on June 9 following the swing higher off the January lows, we now have an Elliott wave flat structure: three waves down, three waves up, and five waves down off the peak set on July 13. If the market is bullish, there is a good chance that the last five-wave swing lower will be a short one.
Time cycles suggest that today, July 28, is important, as cycles align in time for a complete structure. We should at least be able to get a bounce from here, and the possibility to raise a stop in the not-too-distant future.
Looking at pivot levels of interest, we have the SEK 139 level as key support. A close below this line would indicate more downside. To the upside, we have resistance at SEK 145, SEK 151 and SEK 157. A future break above SEK 157 would be quite bullish, but for now, we are playing a bounce into this level.
The oscillators are pressured to the downside, and the Slow stochastic indicator (STOC-S) is at levels from where it could reverse. The Relative strength indicator (RSI) has more room to run to the downside, but if the tape is bullish, this reading doesn't necessarily have to come all the way down.
Management and risk description
The plan is to buy LUPE:xome above SEK 139, for a move higher into resistance at SEK 151 and SEK 157 in the coming weeks. The stop is a daily close below SEK 139.
The risk to this setup is a failed bounce and a break of SEK 139. If this were to happen, we might revisit the SEK 100 level.
