FRO Frontline Shipping Stock – Bottoming Tails Cluster Stock Chart Pattern

by Olivier on February 23, 2014

Reviewing FRO – Frontline with an updated chart and my technical analysis thoughts. As outlined in a recent post I still think the Shipping Stocks Turnaround Investment Theme will play out. In the aforementioned post I analyzed the big cap stock DRYS – Dryships. At the time I stated FRO – Frontline and SBLK – Star Bulk Carriers were my favourite stocks within the sector. FRO is now turning out to be the one I want to have exposure to going forward.

In my chart annotations I point out a bottoming tails cluster. That simply means price is hammering out a bottom. Price repeatedly hits a certain price level and each time it does, support holds and price moves higher again. The recent candlestick cluster displaying bottoming tails would define the lower trendline of an ascending triangle if FRO were to move up from these levels. I think this is a high odds proposition as the weekly MA 30 is acting as strong support and upon completion the ascending triangle would be considered being the right shoulder of an inverted bullish head and shoulders pattern. The contracting volume during the recent consolidation pattern so far supports that bullish assumption. A stop loss could be placed below the recent low at 3.47. A close below that price would invalidate my bullish scenario.

The most important rule of trading is to play good defense, not great offense. Every day I assume every position I have is wrong. I know where my stop risk points are going to be. I do that so I can define my maximum possible draw down. - Paul Tudor Jones
