Eye on stock spritzer

Spritzer Bhd (code: 7103) gapped up at Friday’s opening to challenge the 200-day simple moving average (SMA) but erased all its gains to close unchanged at day’s end.

The stock has been facing consolidation pressure ever since it bottomed out at a recent low of RM1.87 on Monday. There have been two attempts thus far to break above the 200-day SMA, but both were unsuccessful. At present, the stock remains at risk of resuming its correction unless buying interest is sustained to make a break above the resistance.

Based on the daily price chart, a breakthrough of the 200-day SMA and the nearby 21-day SMA would see the counter trading above all the key moving averages. This would free the bulls to roam higher towards an initial resistance of RM2, and higher still to a stiffer hurdle of RM2.04.

The RM2.04 mark serves as the 50% Fibonacci retracement level, a crossing of which would suggest strong upward momentum. For the present, momentum remains weak following Friday’s performance. Although the slow-stochastic has risen out of oversold conditions, it is hovering at a low level of 24 points.

The 14-day relative strength index has flattened out above 30 points, also indicating a lack of upward momentum. Meanwhile, the daily moving average convergence/divergence line remains on a downtrend as it heads lower below the zero line.

Based on the trading volume, investor interest in the stock remains tepid as compared to the build up of volume seen in the early December period as the stock built up to a strong rally. This would suggest that there is yet to be a strong catalyst to give the stock the necessary push to break out of the current bearish channel.

At the lower end of the chart, support is found in the RM1.85-RM1.87 range, a negative breach which would signal an extension of the downtrend.
