SATS prints bearish elements with head and shoulders reversal pattern, staying red after nearly 3 quarters and printing a new low for the year in August.
Reversal pattern, negative sentiment and bearish expansion
SATS is a SGX-listed stock and was a local stock darling in 2015 and 2016. When stock markets around the world were at their worst early last year, SATS bucked the trend then quickly went on to print new 52-week highs.
At the moment however, technical signs do not look too rosy.
- After nearly 3 financial quarters, the stock is in the red for the year.
- Line and candlestick charts for the monthly time frame clearly prints a head and shoulders reversal pattern.
- SATS printed the first q-q lower price this quarter since Q4 2014. This is a bearish expansion that terminates the previous 10 quarters of high quarterly lows.
To be sure, many things can happen between now to end of quarter or even year end. Head and shoulders patterns fail too (we call that a dead cat bounce) so they are not certainty. This bearish expansion in Q3 could be a signal to go short on the indication of a down trend but it could also be a false signal and bargain for investors since one could buy at an 8-month low out of a 2-year uptrend (I might confuse you but this is an excellent concept to think about).
