BHP Billiton Grant King Retires

BHP Billiton Grant King Retires

BHP Billiton has announced a board shake up that will see Grant King depart just six months after his appointment “owing to concerns expressed by some investors”. The company said Mr King had decided not to stand for election to the board and would retire from the role on August 31. The former chief executive of Origin Energy joined BHP’s board in February as an independent non-executive director. Investors had questioned Mr King’s record at Origin Energy after the company was forced to take writedowns on a liquefied natural gas project in Queensland.

Momentum Indicators

Momentum is a general term used to describe the speed at which prices move over a given time period. Generally, changes in momentum tend to lead to changes in prices. This expert shows the current values of four popular momentum indicators.

Stochastic Oscillator

One method of interpreting the Stochastic Oscillator is looking for overbought areas (above 80) and oversold areas (below 20). The Stochastic Oscillator is 57.1428. This is not an overbought or oversold reading. The last signal was a buy 2 period(s) ago.

Relative Strength Index (RSI)

The RSI shows overbought (above 70) and oversold (below 30) areas. The current value of the RSI is 41.80. This is not a topping or bottoming area. A buy or sell signal is generated when the RSI moves out of an overbought/oversold area. The last signal was a buy 49 period(s) ago.

Commodity Channel Index (CCI)

The CCI shows overbought (above 100) and oversold (below -100) areas. The current value of the CCI is -42. This is not a topping or bottoming area. The last signal was a buy 3 period(s) ago.


The Moving Average Convergence/Divergence indicator (MACD) gives signals when it crosses its 9 period signal line. The last signal was a sell 12 period(s) ago.
