The share prices of quite a number of blue chip companies rebounded last week – but in my opinion, the trend is still a bearish one.

Before I proceed to analyse the share price movements of each of the 30 blue chip companies last week, and possible movements in the week ahead (for the trading week between 30 March and 03 April 2020) based on a weekly timeframe, here’s the share price movement of the STI on a weekly timeframe:

STI's Movements on a Weekly Timeframe
STI’s Movements on a Weekly Timeframe

During the course of last week, the STI fell to a low of 2,208 points, before rebounding up strongly to finish the week at 2,528 points. In my opinion, in order for the trend to be considered as reversed (i.e. from a downtrend to an uptrend), it must close above 2,560 points when trading for the week closes this Friday (i.e. 03 April.) Otherwise, in my opinion, the overall trend is still a downward one.

Now, let us take a look at how each of the 30 blue chip companies performed last week, and how they are likely to perform in the week ahead:

1. Ascendas REIT (SGX:A17U)

Ascendas REIT's Unit Price Movements on a Weekly Timeframe
Ascendas REIT’s Unit Price Movements on a Weekly Timeframe

There was some rebound to Ascendas REIT’s unit price in the week that just passed, where it was pulled up after touching a low of S$2.22 to close at S$2.78. That said, the trend, in my opinion, has not reversed just yet. In order for the trend to be reversed from down to up, the unit price have to close above S$2.95 this week – that’s the bullish scenario. In a bearish scenario, the unit price is likely to break below the S$2.76 support line and once again test the support lines at S$2.63, S$2.50, and S$2.37 once again.

2. CapitaLand (SGX:C31)

CapitaLand's Share Price Movements on a Weekly Timeframe

The share price movement of CapitaLand last week is similar to that of Ascendas REIT – where the share price touched a low in the course of the week (to S$2.56), before rebounding up and closing at S$2.95. In my opinion, in order for the trend to reverse from down to up, it must first break through the S$3.02 resistance line and close above S$3.04 at the end of the week – that’s the bullish scenario. On the other hand, should the bearish trend were to continue, the share price is likely to once again break below the support line at S$2.82, and once again test the next support line at S$2.62.

3. CapitaLand Commercial Trust (SGX:C61U)

CapitaLand Commercial Trust's Unit Price Movements on a Weekly Timeframe

The unit price movement of CapitaLand Commercial Trust displayed a similar trend as both CapitaLand and Ascendas REIT last week – where the unit price sank to a low of S$1.30, before rebounding back up and closing at S$1.56 last Friday (i.e. 27 March.) For the trend of the REIT to become bullish once again, it must first break above the resistance line at S$1.61, and close above S$1.73 when the market closes this Friday (i.e. 03 April.) Otherwise, should the bearish trend were to continue once again this week, the unit price could once again break below the support line at S$1.48, and once again test the support line at S$1.35.

4. CapitaLand Mall Trust (SGX:C38U)

The unit price of the retail REIT fell to a low of S$1.56, before rebounding and closing at S$1.86 when the market closed last Friday (27 March.) In order for the trend to be considered as an upward one, it must break through the resistance lines at S$1.92, S$2.02, S$2.12, and close above S$2.14 when the market closes this week (i.e. on 03 April.) However, if the bearish run were to continue in the week ahead, the retail REIT’s unit price is likely to below the support line at S$1.82, and once again test the support lines at S$1.72 and S$1.62.

5. City Developments (SGX:C09)

City Developments’ share price slumped to a low of S$6.11 during the week (which also is its new 52-week low), before rebounding and close at S$7.44 on Friday (27 March.) For the company’s share price movement to reverse from a bearish mode to a bullish one, it must first break above the resistance line at S$7.56, and close above S$8.00 when trading closes on Friday (i.e. 03 April.) Otherwise, it is likely that the share price will once again break below the S$6.89 support line and once again test the next support line at S$6.22.

6. ComfortDelGro (SGX:C52)

For the trend to reverse from down to up, it must close above S$1.69 when the market closes this Friday (i.e. 03 April.) In a bearish scenario, the share price is likely to break below the support line at S$1.43 and move towards the next support line at S$1.17.

7. Dairy Farm International (SGX:D01)

In order for the trend of this one to turn from bearish to bullish, it will have close above US$4.64 when market closes this Friday (i.e. 03 April.) Otherwise, the share price may break below US$3.84 and test the next support line at US$3.32 once again.

In the week which just ended last Friday (i.e. 27 March), the share price staged a rebound and closed at S$20.29. For the price trend of this one to turn from a bearish to a bullish one, in the week ahead, the share price have to close above S$22.80.

A bullish hammer candlestick has emerged when trading for the week ended last Friday (i.e. 27 March), suggesting a sign of trend reversal (from downtrend to uptrend.) In my opinion, for the trend to be considered as an uptrend, the share price have to first break above US$54.66 when trading closes this Friday (i.e. 03 April.) If the bearish run were to continue, the share price could once again test the support line at US$44.60.

Jardine Strategic’s share price closed at US$22.23 when market closed last Friday (i.e. 27 March.) In my opinion, the trend is still considered to be a bearish one – it has to close above US$23.56 when market closes this coming Friday (i.e. 03 April) in order for the trend to be considered as bullish.

Otherwise, should the bearish trend were to continue in the week ahead, it is likely to break below S$1.87 support line and once again retest the support lines at S$1.77 and S$1.67.
