This is a follow-up post on the BHP spin-off, S32.
The previous post drew attention to the breaking of the downwards trend-line, and suggested that S32 might prove to be a quicker turn-around play than the parent stock BHP-Billiton.
In the previous post it was noted that despite the breaking of the trend line, the down-trend remained intact. (at December 30 2015 when the share-price was $1.085 at close).
Not surprisingly, the share-price did slide lower in the New Year to support at 88 cents where a double bottom was formed.
From this point, the share price has moved higher with a change in trend evident on the 4th February 2016, penetrating resistance at $1.
This is bullish for further appreciation the S32 share price, but it is likely that low commodity prices will continue to be a drag on the share price.
