Technical Analysis: Dundee REIT (D.UN:TSX)

Support and resistance levels for Dundee REIT
A daily candlestick chart for Dundee REIT showing the support and resistance levels.

Dundee REIT (D.UN:TSX) Daily Chart

Dundee Reit has been one of my core holdings over the past two years. And I was fortunate to own a significant position in Whiterock REIT when it was acquired by Dundee. The major trend is still up for Dundee but it will have to break resistance of $37.50, the March high, to continue the uptrend. The May 3 earnings release could be the catalyst for the breakout above resistance. If not, there will be a test of the $35.00 support level.

Reference my last chart analysis for Dundee REIT which was posted on May 9, 2011.

Technical Analysis: Uptrend over for DJIA

DJIA unable to break above the trendline
The current uptrend is over for the Dow Jones Industrial Average. It will either move into a consolidation zone or correct in the range of 10%

DJIA Daily Chart

The uptrend that started in October is over but this does not mean the index will suddenly go into a downtrend. There are three options for a trend: up, down and sideways. And there are three time periods for a trend: major, intermediate and near-term. The #3 is a ubiquitous number in technical analysis.

TSX Index in a lateral trading band
The TSX Index is still trading in a lateral band between 12,300 and 12,600.  The Relative Strength Index (RSI) has a negative technical profile. The YTD gain of 3.7% pales in comparison to the 12.0% gain for the s&p500.

Key points to monitor on the TSX Index daily chart

TSX Index chart analysis showing key support and resistance levels.

TSX Index Daily Chart

Yes, the TSX Index has a negative technical profile. The intermediate trend is sideways as identified on the above daily candlestick chart. A confirmed break below 12,300 would be a warning to liquidate long positions.

Think about the major sectors in the TSX Index. The materials sector has a negative technical profile. The energy sector has a negative technical profile. Investors are taking money out of the hot REIT sector as rates slowly rise and on the news of subpar Canadian economic indicators. And the utilities are priced to perfection. And the two major telecos — BCE and Telus — had a nice run and are also priced to perfection.  What is left? Some bank stocks like RBC moved upward over the past four months and the Lifecos are coming back from the dead but are still on life support.

Caution is advised especially with the news coming out of China about the actual or perceived slowdown.

Reference the last chart analysis of the TSX Index based on the weekly chart. This is a three year chart with the the 50 day, 100 day and 200 day simple moving averages. The TSX Index is holding just above the 200 day moving average. You will see the golden cross (50 day crossed above the 200 day) on this longer term chart but the the cross is a little tarnished at this stage.

Notice the similarities with the daily chart for copper? Yes, we are a resource based economy.

Technical Analysis: TSX Index candlestick chart

Harami candlestick pattern for the TSX Index
Harami candlestick pattern on the weekly chart of the TSX Index indicates caution. Monitor support at 12,500.  A confirmed break below support would be a reason to liquidate selected long position.

TSX Index 3 year Weekly Candlestick Chart

I start each trading week with an analysis of the major US and Canadian indexes. A three year weekly candlestick chart is my tool of choice. Three simple moving averages (50 day, 100 day and 200 day) are used to monitor the trend and any crossovers. Volume, On Balance Volume (OBV) and Relative Strength Index (RSI) are used as confirming indicators and to spot divergence.

The harami candlestick pattern identified on the above chart of the TSX Index is similar to the Western inside day. This is not a major reversal pattern but caution is advised. The TSX Index may move into a consolidation range between support and resistance. But a break below support of 12,500 would be reason enough to liquidate selected long position.

Reference last weeks analysis of the TSX Index which highlighted the confirmed breakout above resistance of 12,500.
