JD Sports Fashion (LSE:JD.) has experienced a pretty awful six months since our review in January.

While the share price did achieve our upward targets, at no time has it closed above our secondary of 136p, so we’re a bit jaded if trying to report confidence for the future. There are some early signals something positive may be about to happen.

We’ve chosen to assign 137p as a major trigger level, believing closure above such a level should now prove fairly game changing. Such a miracle would dump the share in a zone where we can calculate future recovery to an initial 161p with secondary, if beaten, at 167p and some probable hesitation, if only due to the presence of the Blue downtrend since 2022.

Surprisingly, in the future, closure above this historic trend shall place the share at the mercy of a long-term attraction from 232p!

Our converse scenario risks reversal below 110p bringing a visit to an initial 99p with secondary, if broken, a less likely 82p.
