Ayala Land (ALI) - Daily Chart 1 - 10.3.2019

Support is at 44.85, which is in confluence with the 50 percent retracement of the Up Fibonacci. Resistance is at 49.50, which is in confluence with the 78.6 percent retracement of the Up Fibonacci.

If ALI breaks below 44.85, it’ll make 43 as its next immediate support.

At this point, my 10SMACD combo is already invalid and my Momentum Power Indicator is already bearish on ALI. There are no buy signals. The downtrend is still more likely to continue.

Risk level is low based on its historical volatility score of 34.70 percent. However, don’t translate that as a signal for you to average down. There’s nothing worthy to be averaged down on ALI at this moment.

If you still have ALI, understand that holding a stock beyond your tolerable risk won’t make you a saint. Have pity on your capital. Don’t risk more than what you can realistically handle with sanity. Calculate your trailing stop from your entry price. If the output says that you should have already sold your position a long time ago, then, your only logical step now is to sell on strength.

If you do not have ALI right now, then, bravo! That’s a good decision. There are no buy signals so why should you buy, right? Add ALI in your watchlist if you’d like to but don’t add it yet in your portfolio. Wait for the 10SMACD combo to become valid and the Momentum Power Indicator to become bullish. Once the technical buy signals re-appear, make sure that you calculate your reward-to-risk ratio. If, and only if, you’re satisfied with your reward-to-risk ratio, that’s the only time you should enter a new position in any stock.
