Transocean Ltd, about to surface after Deepwater Horizon?

#Stoxx50 #NK225 As one of the guilty party in the Deepwater Horizon debacle, Transocean share price has taken a little hit since 2010. The corrosion of their share price has actually been worse, the rot starting in 2008 and proving pretty relentless in the years since. However, something interesting appears to be happening, share price movements worth paying attention to.

The Blue line on the chart below dates all the way back 14 years and suddenly, the stock market decided the share price deserved being gapped up above this long term historical downtrend. Equally puzzling, the presence of the Red uptrend since 2020’s pandemic lows. As the chart inset shows, the share price was also gapped up, regaining this uptrend.

Usually, in the grand scheme of things, we get quite exciting when a price is gapped up above its Red uptrend, this generally providing a reliable signal for happy times ahead. We’re always slightly less optimistic, when a price is gapped above a Blue downtrend, this sort of movement often being at the mercy of overall market conditions before things come to fruition. In this particular case, we’re at a loss as we cannot recall an instance when both things happened at the same time.

Maybe it’s an indicator the market is finally forgiving Transocean for trying to burn down the world and instead, is hoping the company intends set fire to the stock market!

The immediate situation certainly allows for some real optimism, suggesting ongoing traffic above $4 should trigger price recovery to an initial $5 next. If exceeded, our longer term secondary calculation works out at a visually sane $7.3. The picture from the chart certainly suggests a risk of hesitation, should $7.3 make an appearance.


For everything to go as badly as the companies attempts to cap an oil well in the Mexican Gulf, the share price now needs drip below $2.4 as this would transport it into a zone where “bottom” calculates as a visit to $1.12.

We really suspect Transocean Ltd should prove worth watching in the weeks and months ahead.
