Veye’s Take

Netwealth expects to benefit from ongoing industry consolidation and change. For FY2021, the pipeline of new business and transitions remains strong. NWL FUA net inflows are well diversified with the largest transition accounting for approximately 18% of the quarterly net inflows. The stock has taken the support of the lower band of the Bollinger after making the” Lower Low” formation on the price charts. RSI has just turned positive, supporting the upside move. MACD crossover is about to begin. The stock price is above the middle band of the Bollinger. Levels near $17.95-$18.17 are strong resistance zone. Veye maintains a ”Hold” on “Netwealth Group Limited” at the current price of $17.75
