How is JHG poised on daily charts?
JHG’s prices started to move upside from the end of March 2020 and gained ~ 119 percent in 8 months. Post making a high of AUD 45.25 in December 2020, prices entered into a correction mode after forming a Shooting Star (bearish reversal) candlestick pattern. For the past two and half months, prices have been trading in a moderate bullish trend and shot up ~24 percent from February 2021 low. Prices are also sustaining above a downward sloping trend line breakout for more than 5 months, indicating bullish bias. However, the current upside move is not backed by volume, indicating a lack of interest from market participants that is putting uncertainties over the future direction. Now the prices are facing stiff resistance from AUD 45.25, a decisive break out of the same will be crucial to gauge the short-term trend of the stock.
