Massmart has now hit our first 'Take Profit' level of R112.00, close to a 10% drop.


  • The textbook head & shoulders pattern, a bearish formation, has played out in our favour despite the rand firming from 13.30 to R12.90 against the U.S. dollar.  
  • Goldman Sachs recently released a report detailing that they believe the fair value on Massmart is closer to R105, supporting our short trade concensus.

Potential Trade setup

  • First price target of R112 has been hit.
  • Our full price target sits at R105
