Trading Idea of the Day

ASX:XRO- Xero Ltd - BULLISH BIAS (long term)

  • Key levels on the chart - consider taking trades from key support/resistance zones.
  • Starting out in New Zealand and Australia, Xero has since spread to the UK, United States and over 100 countries around the world. The super simple online accounting tool lets anyone manage their company finances for a monthly subscription fee.
  • The simpler interface and UX design has meant that Xero is often favoured over more established names by freelancers who don’t have a financial background.
  • Xero is still in relatively early stages of growth with additional integrations, tools and features added on a regular basis making the management of your business easier year after year.
  • This creates a very sticky customer base that provides an unusually high resilience on revenue for Xero.
