Trading Idea of the Day
ASX:WOW - Woolworths Group - BULLISH BIAS
- Key levels on the chart - consider taking trades from key support/resistance levels
- Woolies falls under the Consumer Staples sector which is generally a defensive stock and therefore resistant to economic cycles including any upcoming recessions
- Woolies can maintain their profit margins and pass on their costs to customers which provides protection for their bottom line.
