Property Market about to Bounce?

It looks like the powers that be are determined to get our property market shooting higher again sooner rather than later. We’ve had two interest rate cuts and now APRA has announced that banks can lend people more money based on the amount of money they earn currently. The hurdle rate for loans has been lowered from the previous level of 7%, which means the amount people can borrow has just increased by around 14% overnight.

Whether it’s enough to not only stop the rot but also to cause a new bull market remains to be seen, but that doesn’t mean property facing stocks won’t rally strongly in anticipation of good news ahead.

Two stocks came up on my quarterly scan last week that could benefit from renewed interest in the recovering property market story. They both cater to different aspects of the market and have different risk characteristics, but they have both been pummelled over the last couple of years and have retested their all-time lows.

Last quarter saw a buy pivot in both stocks, so my system is telling me to prick my ears up and start searching for entry points. I keep the actual calculations that I use to enter stocks such as this for members of Alpha Wave Trader, but in the video above I give you a quick outline of the technical situation in both stocks and show you the key levels above and below each stock.

I am not giving a recommendation to buy either stock at current prices. This is just for illustrative purposes only, so that you gain a better understanding of my trading process and hopefully learn a few things along the way.
