Update (3) - BHP Billiton PLC (BIL) target price 3 reached (17/05/2018).

BHP Billiton PLC (BIL) has crossed our third target price of 29524c and is still looking good for now. I will be managing the stop loss to my second target price of 27995c. I am still expecting the price action to retrace but I will be managing my stop into the profit to my second target price 27995c. I will be looking to add a fourth target price at 30798c but this might be ambitious in the short term.

How to proceed: (Two ways of managing your trade)

  1. Take profit and move on to the next trade.
  2. Move your stop loss into profit at your second target price 27995c and let the price action run to new highs and manage trade higher.
