They are now recovering on the back of strong growth of the loan book.

From the high in July the WZR share price fell back to the 17-cent level, above the 50% retracement level of the previous run up.

Moving up from here is a sign of strength.

Should the price continue the move up then the levels of 24 cents and 27 cents may come into play.

Breaking the 27-cent level would be a strong bullish sign.

Should it retrace then the level of 17 cents may be enough to halt the fall.

Wisr is showing continued growth with no sign of the pandemic slowing it down. Falling to the 50% level and moving up again tends to be a good sign for the future.
