Technical outlook – The six-months bullish display since establishing a base at $7.00 is now appearing to be heading back into the bearish territory for Origin Energy (ORG) after clearly having trouble breaking through the $8.80 resistance on more than three or so occasions in the last nine weeks.
Therefore, this in terms, supports a pull-back in the near-term.
A break of $8.40 should give further leverage to the downside before any initial bullish call is expected.
With the two technical indicators, the Relative Strength Index (RSI) and the Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) locked into a potential ‘bearish marriage’ gives our call to the region of $8.15 before any expected profit-taking emerges.
