Glencore: How do chart analysts judge?

The average closing price of the Glencore share for the last 200 trading days is currently $223.9 (£166.37). The last closing price of $285.06 (£211.85) thus deviates by +27.34 percent, which corresponds to a “buy” valuation from a chart perspective. Let’s look at the average of the last 50 trading days. For this $236 (£175.42) the last closing price is also above the moving average (+20.77 percent deviation). The Glencore stock is thus also given a “buy” rating on this shorter-term basis.

Shareholders can draw hope thanks to RSI

A well-known tool used in technical analysis to assess whether a stock is currently “overbought” or “oversold” is the Relative Strength Index (RSI). This index relates to price movements over time. Analysts consider the RSI on a 7-day and 25-day basis for Glencore. Let’s start with the 7-day RSI, which currently stands at 14.8 points. This means that Glencore is currently oversold. The share is therefore classified as a “Buy”. What does the 25-day RSI look like? Glencore is also oversold (value 23.99), so the stock is also given a “Buy” rating for the RSI25. Glencore is thus rated “Buy” for this point in the analysis.
