Watching Woodside

I’m watching if Woodside Energy’s (WPL.AX) stock price breaks $27.60 this week.

If it does, it portends a move to the $30 level into a late March/early April window, with $30.85 being major resistance.

A break above $27.60 means the stock is making a ‘higher high’ than the same price seen in January 2021.

This is a market where I’m watching whether stocks are making ‘higher highs’ or ‘lower lows’ than their previous mark.

The overall message is that it’s a sellers market at these various levels.

And if the $27.60 level fails to be broken, selling at $26.50 (on the way down) will also be appropriate.

Buyers at today’s prices are playing for the last possible 10%, while medium term downside is 15% (back to $23.40)… makes for a terrible risk/reward consideration.

Coinciding with my Overbought Brent note (which I published immediately prior to this), Woodside’s stock price is also overbought on a Weekly basis and only its 6th such occurrence since 2007.

Furthermore, Woodside is mean reverting towards its 200 week moving average (that’s the blue line on the chart below).
