Royal Mail Share Price Needs To Hold 260p
While LON: IDS is showing great strength, the bulls still need to flip the 260p level into support to aim for further upside. The shares have broken above the diagonal and horizontal resistances but need to confirm this breakout. A confirmation will give bulls enough momentum to target 300p, where lies the next major resistance.
Royal Mail share price forecast will remain bullish as long as the shares trade above 252p. A breakdown below this level will invalidate the recent breakout. The ongoing pullback has the tendency to take take the price toward the 252p level, but there’s nothing to worry about as long as it holds.
