A major breakdown is underway in Celanese Corp. (CE) shares. After peaking back in January, the shares dropped back in February but had been bouncing back. Earlier this month, the shares peaked at a lower high, a sign of an emerging downtrend and since then, distribution has become more apparent. In the last few days, the shares have completed a series of bearish patterns including a Descending Triangle, a Double Bottom and a Spread Double Bottom, combining to signal the start of a new downtrend.
Based on horizontal counts and previous column highs, next potential downside support may appear near $111.50 and then $105.00 on trend, followed by $100.00 where a long-term support line and a round number converge. Initial upside resistance appears near $135.90 based on a 3-box reversal and a retest of the recent breakdown point.
With a bearish SMAX score of 2, CE is exhibiting weakness against the asset classes.
