What’s Happening to the Share Price of Qantas Airways Ltd?

What is the share price of Qantas Airways Ltd doing today?

This is a follow up to a post I made on April 16 about Qantas Airways Limited [ASX:QAN].

Qantas has broken into new highs again today, making a high for the day of $3.79 at the time of writing.

OK, but what is the updated chart telling you?

What does the chart look like?

Another lucky call on QAN Shares?

In the previous post on April 16, I stated passenger numbers would be improving, subsequent announcements have since confirmed.

Also in that post I am on record as stating,

‘One just has a gut feeling that it may be time for Qantas to consolidate recent gains and take a breath for a minute. Let’s wait and see.’

From that moment on, indicated by the arrow on the chart, it proceeded to go sideways for a month. Just a lucky call on that one.

You’ll never hear from me that trading the share market is easy, but with a little charting knowledge, you just start swimming with the current, rather than against it. If you want to learn a bit more about the reading the charts you can fast track your education here.
