For Week 24, $BDRY closed up slightly at 12.39 and at first glance this ETF has come across as a real yawner over the past few weeks. However, a closer look reveals some incrementally higher closes as the fund sneaks slowly into our $12 – $14 resistance zone.
Pushing ever higher, our RSI at 71.71 reached a peakish-looking value. Compare this to Week 18’s RSI of 38.70 at a $12.25 close, hence our yawns. The MACD stayed at an upward snail’s pace, just shy of positive values yet again.
Is $BDRY building a foundation here? Bringing up Week 18’s commentary yet again, we muttered something about consolidation around present values. $BDRY may be experiencing some tempering effects from lack-lustre Supra and Panamax forward curves being offset by Capesize exuberance. Overall the impression is of BDRY gingerly building support just below current levels, offering a welcome buffer against those volatile indices. However a weather eye will also be kept on peakish signals as we tread carefully on eggshell-like support.
