In the previous trading session, Sberbank shares fell 2.52%, closing at 281.5 rubles. The paper looked worse than the market. Trading volume amounted to 22 billion rubles.
Sberbank shares held quite weak for several days, which ultimately led to a breakdown of the short-term growing trend. On Monday, the price left the rising channel built from the February lows.
It was noted that the support was at the level of 286.5 and its breakdown would shift the benchmarks to the next Fibonacci correction level in the 281 region. As you can see, this is where the quotes came at the day’s lows. On the four-hour chart, the RSI has already reached the oversold zone and a rebound to the nearest resistance is quite possible.
Now it will be just a rebound, whereas earlier the scenario of a rise above 300 was considered. Now the risks of a return to the 2021 lows, the lower border of the sideways 257-296, have emerged. We do not fully rely on such a scenario yet, but a negative signal was obviously received. Breakdown of 276.5 will give an impetus to its implementation.
A breakdown of 286 will improve the local picture.
- Resistance levels: 282.9 / 286 / 288.5 / 292.4 / 296.1
- Support levels: 281 / 276.5 / 272
