BT group
LONDON, UK - JUNE 20TH 2015: The homepage of the official BT (British Telecom) webiste, on 20th June 2015.

BT (LON: BT.A) share price has reversed after a massive upward rally as the company reported its earnings last week. The shares of the UK’s telecom giant tanked 4.89% in its worst week since March 2023. The latest analysis reveals that the bulls need to break above 148p soon, or things may turn extremely bearish.

After a sharp decline during the mid of last week, BT shares had a strong rebound. The bounce continued on Monday as the price retested the 148p level. However, the sellers had taken the price back to 145.75p till the time of writing.

UK Regulator Approves BT Group’s Openreach Pricing

According to the most recent BT Group plc news, the UK regulator has finally approved the Openreach’s pricing offer for full-fiber broadband. Ofcom had earlier withheld its decision on the pricing due to concerns raised by the rival altnets. The earnings report for the period ending on March 2023 revealed that the telecom company’s pre-tax profit dropped to GBP 1.73 billion from the last year’s GBP 1.96 billion.

Consequently, BT share price plummeted to its lowest level since February 15 before rebounding strongly. While the revenue of GBP 20.68 billion was more than the company-provided consensus estimate of GBP 20.52 billion, it was still lower than the FY2022 revenue of GBP 20.85 billion.

BT Share Price Needs To Break Above 148p

Technical analysis of LON: BT.A reveals that 148p is a very critical level on the chart. This level acted as a major resistance before the price broke above it in April. Now once again, the price is trading below it. The disappointing earnings report and the announcement of massive layoffs by 2030 have turned this level into a major resistance once again.

BT share price forecast will flip extremely bearish if the price gains acceptance below 134.5p. This is because this is a major support level that lies close to the 200-day moving average. The price has already filled the gap, which was created after a massive gap-down opening on the day of the earnings report’s release.
