CBA Technical Analysis​

The technical analysis of the CBA stock price chart on daily timeframe shows #A-CBA, Daily is retracing up after testing the 200-day moving average MA(200) which is falling. We believe the bearish momentum will continue after the price breaches below the lower boundary of Donchian channel at 99.05. This level can be used as an entry point for placing a pending order to sell. The stop loss can be placed above the upper boundary of Donchian channel at 102.79. After placing the order, the stop loss is to be moved every day to the next fractal high, following Parabolic indicator signals. Thus, we are changing the expected profit/loss ratio to the breakeven point. If the price meets the stop loss level (102.79) without reaching the order (99.05), we recommend cancelling the order: the market has undergone internal changes which were not taken into account.
