Bstead- breaking above the diamond pattern

Since June 15, Pharma had a sharp rally from RM6.00 to a high of RM11.02 this morning. Presently, it is trading at RM9.81 (as at 9.40am). Could the rally in Pharma, a subsidiary of Bstead, be linked to some positive development in Bstead? Bstead share price has risen from about RM5.11 on June 15 to a high of RM5.51 this morning. Now, it is trading at RM5.39 (as at 9.40am).

Chartwise, Bstead has broken above its diamond pattern at RM5.30. The breakout is not convincing as it is not accompanied by high volume. If it can recruit more buying support or if the Pharma rally is due to a positive development that could boost the performance of the Bstead group, then Bstead could continue to rise. Its immediate resistance is at the 'horizontal; line at RM5.70 & then the line connecting its previous 'high' at RM7.50.

As such, Bstead is worth close tracking.

Note: Pharma had replied to an Unusual Market Action from the Exchange on June 18 by saying that it is not aware of any possible explanation for the sharp rally in the share price.

Hi Alex,

Have you ever considered published a book on trading experiences/ideas/techniques? I do think you have a lot of case studies to put them in... My wish list topic is breakout analysis, after breakout, what to look for (wait for pullback etc, signs), volume explanation, etc....

Hi Kilo,

Thank you for the suggestion. I doubt I can sell more than a handful of books on that topics.
