The Sainsbury share price beat off recent woes to record modest gains this Friday. However, it still looks set to end the week lower, as investors take profits to cool off a minor uptrend that has been on since March.
Sainsbury’s share price is currently trading at 293.7, marking a 1.59% jump on a day that has favoured groceries and supermarkets. Sainsbury’s share price move of 1.59% to the upside has enabled it to attain the top of the gainers’ chart this Friday.
Sainsbury Share Price Outlook
Following the bounce on the ascending trendline support, the active daily candle has met resistance at 295.1. This resistance must be uncapped for the Sainsbury share price to target 304.5. Beyond this level, the stock will have clear skies to pursue the recovery, with a higher high that targets 312.3 (6 December 2018 high) and 323.0 (3 June 2018 high) along the way.
On the flip side, a break below the ascending trendline instantly puts 286.3 under pressure, with a breakdown leading to a drop that targets 276.2. 269.5 comes into the picture if the previous support level fails to cope with bearish pressure.
