Zak Mir's Bear Call Of The Day: Support Towards 240p

Moneysupermarket has undoubtedly delivered false sunsets in terms of the extended rally which has dominated the daily chart over much of the past year. But at the very least, there are messages here on the daily timeframe which suggest that it may be best to avoid this situation if you are a long standing fan of the company, or take profits, even if one does not actually go short outright. This is because over the past month there has been sharp bearish divergence in the RSI window, with the latest wide gap through the 10, 20 and 50 day moving average suggesting that the longs have finally run out of steam here.

The view at the moment is that at least while there is no swift break back above the 50 day line at 283p, we could be set to suffer a further test for support. The favoured destination for this would be towards the 200 day moving average/1 year price channel floor at 238p. The time frame on such a move is seen as being the next 1 to 2 months, with the 240p area likely to be retested even if shares of Moneysupermarket manage to rehabilitate themselves after that.
