After experiencing some digestion post a placement dating back to April at 1.9c ( including a 1 for 2 option struck at 3c), Stemcell United (ASX:SCU) again looks poised to move higher.

The overall trend in the last year has been positive as seen on the chart, and the stock has made a good go of periodically capturing speculative interest in the market.

This has led to several short and incisive upside blow-offs, the most impressive of which was the move to almost 5c dating back to December of last year.


Chart of Day – Stemcell United (ASX:SCU)


Having spent the best part of three months now consolidating between 1.5c and the placement price of 1.9c, SCU has again begun to ease higher, trading up to 2.2c a couple of times on the 15th and 16th of this month and testing a modestly up-trending line as can be seen in black.

Naturally given recent price action, the moving averages have also all begun to converge, which can set the stage for a more explosive move in either direction.

Short term, a close at 2.2c on reasonable volume would signify ‘something different’, with immediate upside targets then being 2.5c and 3c before entertaining higher levels.

On the downside, we are certainly looking for 1.5c to hold no matter what.

It’s a favourable risk reward set-up, and certainly a position that we have held from the placement at 1.9c and which we continue to entertain for its upside prospects.
