Technical Outlook

Glancing at the price chart of WiseTech Global, one could easily gauge that the stock is in a bull run. The stock price has been in an uptrend making higher highs and higher lows. Currently the stock price is few cents away from its all-time high as depicted in the price chart below.

Let's analyse the trend through the lens of technical tools.

In the stock price run up to, on the weekly chart, the stock had started taking strong trendline support. The ongoing long-term bull run, is currently supported by short term trendline (support), lending encouraging signals to the traders/investors.

However, when we take a closer look through the commodity channel index (CCI), the grass gets greener on the other side.

CCI is a momentum indicator just like RSI or Stochastics, but a major point of difference is it does not include any fixed upper or lower value, in short, there is no highest or lowest value. The general rule of thumb is that values above 100 and below -100 can be used as traditional overbought and oversold zones of an oscillator. The use of oscillators for oversold and overbought conditions is discussed in many articles before, one of which can be read here.

As mentioned above, taking 100 as an overbought zone makes the stock highly susceptible for further momentum. However, the value must come below 100 to depict probable selling, going by CCI.

Another reason for the worry is the bearish divergence that has started to form (marker with red lines on the chart above). Bearish divergence is explained in detail here. A bearish divergence forming at the top of any previous uptrend is effective, but when the stock is in a strong bull run, like in this case, often the divergence does not work or the correction in the price is usually minor.

Considering that the long-term bull run with trendline support getting countered with an overbought zone with a bearish divergence, and this chart dynamics unfolding near all-time high levels, draws the attention of a chartist. The professional approach under such conditions would be to wait for further confirmation signals be it a bullish signal or a bearish signal to take further actions. Hence, a wait and watch strategy could be useful.
