Antofagasta plc lies in the lower part of a wide and strong rising trend in the short term, and this will normally pose a very good buying opportunity. A break down the bottom trend line at £923.60 will firstly indicate a slower raising rate, but may also be a early warning for a trend shift.

There are mixed signals in the stock today. A sales signal was issued from a pivot top point on Thursday March 21, 2019, which indicates further falls until a new bottom pivot has been found. Volume rose on falling prices yesterday. This may be an early warning and the stock should be followed more closely. Antofagasta plc holds a sales signal from the short-term moving average; at the same time, however, there is a buy signal from the long-term average. Since the short-term average is above the long-term average there is a general buy signal in the stock. On further gains, the stock will meet resistance from the short-term moving average at approximately £945.94. On a fall, the stock will find some support from the long-term average at approximately £920.83. A break-up through the short-term average will send a buy signal, whereas a breakdown through the long-term average will send a sales signal.
