BT Group Share Price Outlook
The intraday uptick preserves the sanctity of the 175.55 support level (11 March high and 18 March low). An extension of this uptick allows the price activity to challenge the resistance at 180.60 (16 March and 29 April highs). The 184.65 resistance (4 and 22 May 2022 highs) and the 191.5 barrier (12 April highs) constitute additional northbound targets that will become viable if the price activity advance continues.
On the flip side, a decline below the 175.55 support level opens the door toward the 170.85 price target. 166.60 is the site of a previous low seen on 9 March 2022, and this price mark becomes the next available target if price deterioration below 170.85 occurs. 161.95 and the 26 November low at 153.85 are additional targets to the south.
