Stocks in play 6 December 2021

A quick note before we get into this week’s stocks in play. This will be the last one for the year. As I will be taking a break from the markets. It will be back in the second week of January. 2021 has been a great trading year for me. Filled with great lessons, fun and luckily profitably.

The biggest lesson has been to trust and believe in myself. But not so much that I think I know the markets. Trade with a plan, discipline to stick to the plan and have the courage to execute on the plan.

Here’s this weeks stocks in play


Absa gaps and drives strongly on Friday jumping back above the 50 day EMA. Triggering a buy, I will start building up a position with an initial stop loss at R133.25. Putting on a 1% risk


Aspen looks like it’s forming a head and shoulders pattern. We might see it test the 50 day EMA before breaking the R250 neckline. For the R275 target.


Dis-chem broke the bullish flag at the start of the week last week. Spent the entire week test and holding the top line of the flag from above. Waiting for a new relative high close above R35.70


Investec looks well poised for a new high box to continue making new highs. Waiting for a close through the R82.80


Nice round bottom on the stock. The stock consolidated albeit not enough to close the gap . The stock could be setting up a cup and handle pattern. Waiting for a close through the R169.40


The stock has been forming a symmetrical triangle pattern. Looked it was going to a make a new high relative high close, but closed with a bearish looking candle. Struggling to break out. If we can get a closed above Friday’s close I will start building up a position on Sappi
