Two to buy as Trump's “Truce” drives the market's up
As earnings season winds down, the market is taking cues from geopolitics and the weekly macro-economic data that comes out.

The biggest boost the markets will receive is from America and China, agreeing to put aside international trade differences to work on a wider agreement. This is very positive and will be a tail wind for markets to rally higher. Add this to the bullish phase global markets are currently in, with improving bullish indicators.

For example, the increasing percentage of companies above 200 day moving averages, advances and declines ratio and improving market breadth will improve risk appetite.

The risk on sentiment will drive demand in emerging markets and higher risk assets. We should see the rand recover some of the ground lost against the USD the past few weeks, which will be supportive of the banks and retailers; many are down over 10% in the past month. stocks like FSR, SBK, CML and SLM.

Investors should look at accumulating shares of quality companies that have pulled back significantly.

Two to Buy
MTN enters buying zone below R115.50
MTN has been trading in a sideways channel between R110 and R135 for a little more than two years. This has given us many profitable short-term trades in that time.
After banking 10.64% from our last trade on 03 May, we have been given another opportunity.
Management is doing all the right things, which should see a continued improvement in investor sentiment.
We expect MTN to bounce from the R115 level, so buy below R116 for a move toward R130.00. Risk sensitive traders should phase in their position in two tranches. Place a second buy at R11.55 for a volatility spike lower.
Go long MTN below R116 for a move to R130.00,place a wide stop loss at R108.45 (and we’ll trail it up as the stock moves in our favour).
FirstRand to bounce on a stronger Rand
FSR was down over 20% in the past three months and trading at its 200-day moving average, this is a significant support level, which buyers will defend. With the overnight rally in the Rand, we should see it rising to R65 in the near term and possibly R70.
Based purely on the chart, it would be a good time to go long, add the Rand strength and you have a high probability short term trade that can bank you over 5% (ungeared).
Go long FSR below R61.15 for a move to R65 and an ungeared gain over 6%. Place a stop loss at R59.90.
