IMF.ASX Is Likely Heading Higher

Note about Technical Analysis

I was not a profitable trader until I learned technical trading techniques from the James16 Group. I am currently a lifetime member there, and I have been with the group for about 2.5 years.

Trading is always variable. Meaning, losses are inevitable. I am human, and I make mistakes like anyone else.


Riding on the back of landmark settlement news from Friday, 2/19, IMF seems likely to head higher. (The settlement was A$200M.) The chart indicates upward pressure, and it seems likely that the 1.40 area will be tested. In the chart below, 3 target areas are presented, ~1.40, ~1.75, and ~2.05. As price rises, if it makes it above an area and holds, it will be likely to test the next area.

Devil's Advocate

Price could reject off of the 1.40 area and head back down. If it gets below 1.08, the best move is likely to exit, as the lows will probably be retested.
