Applus Services graphical analysis as of July 22, 2021
A graphical analysis allows us to appreciate that the stock has found support in the area that acted as resistance for much of the second part of last year (dashed fuchsia lines). Subsequently, the price has rebounded strongly and buy signals begin to be activated in oscillators that are accompanied by a rebound in the trading volume.
If the rebound gains body and the price manages to recover the simple medium and long-term moving averages, the bullish structure built in the last year and a half will be saved. In this case, the next resistance level would be far away, at 9.265, and a scenario of sustained increases could be worked on. Stops should be set below the recent low of 7.48. An overcoming of the intermediate resistance established at 8,430 would confirm the upward turn and allow the stop to be adjusted.
