Trade view /
15 August 2016 at 5:11 GMT
The stock of Swedish oil company Lundin Petroleum (LUPE:xome) did bounce, unfortunately that didn't help the trade view published on July 28 as key levels were broken to the downside. This now puts the stock of this company in a very interesting situation: is it going to break higher or has it reversed to the downside. In large we are at a so-called inflection point.
For long-term bullish prospects we need a daily close above SEK 163, but until then this stock appears range bound with the aforementioned level as a breakout pivot and SEK 137 as support to the downside.
The move lower from the July into the August 2 low took 20 days, from there the bounce has now managed to rise for 10 days; on day 12 which was Sunday (yesterday) we have an alignment for a reversal lower.
Even though early in the making, a spinning top Friday is telling us that bearish pressure in the coming days is on the cards. Also note how the Slow stochastic indicator (STOC-S) is at levels from where a reversal can take place.
Short-term support pivots are SEK 151, from there we have SEK 145 and SEK 137.
Management and risk description
The plan is to sell the stock of Lundin Petroleum (LUPE:xome) upon a close below SEK 151, which would be indicative of at least a short to medium-term swing lower into support at SEK 145 and also possibly a retest of the SEK 137 level. The stop could be placed at SEK 157 for starters. Once the first target has been hit the stop can be lowered to a close above SEK 151. A daily close above SEK 151 could also work as the initial stop for those who prefer tight stops.
The risk to this setup is a fake break lower that is quickly reversed.
