OCBC’s triangle

Good day all,

This is OCBC, O39.SI. Coming out of the crash five to six years ago, OCBC has been on a general uptrend. Towards the middle of last year, OCBC even beat the previous major high and rallied to the $11.00 region – setting an all-time high record too. However, OCBC turned down, and is a good 13% below that high.

Dropping from the all-time high, OCBC traded in a wide range before a nasty descent at the end of last year. The strong slide continued this year before OCBC started swinging again. I draw arrows in the chart below to show that the there are two similar formations on the chart. Will the same result – further slide – happen again?

I am leaning on the bearish side mainly because of the clear downtrend that OCBC is in (though, OCBC’s very long-term trend is up); also, note that OCBC is comfortably below the 200-day MA. A reader of this site highlighted to be a possible ascending triangle in the making (grey lines). This triangle and the formation I mentioned make this an interesting case to follow in the weeks and months ahead.
