Tuesday's trading range has been $0.23 (1.15%), that's far below the last trading month's daily average range of $0.44.

The stock managed to close above the 100-day moving average at 20.04 for the first time since December 4, 2018. Prices are trading close to the key technical resistance level at 20.30 (R1).

While The Goodyear is experiencing a short-term uptrend, this could just be a correction, as both the medium and long-term trends are still bearish.

Buying might accelerate should prices move above the nearby swing high at 20.21 where further buy stops could get triggered.
