Daily Candlestick Chart (RHI as at Apr 16, 2018):
Monday's trading range was $0.79 (1.33%), that's below last trading month's daily average range of $1.19. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is way below the markets average with the monthly volatility being slightly below average. Prices continued to consolidate within a tight trading range between 58.20 and 59.60 which it has been in now for the last trading week.
Unable to break through the key technical resistance level at 59.50, the share closed below it after spiking as high as 59.60 during the day. The failure to close above the resistance could increase that levels importance as resistance going forward.
The trend is clearly bullish, showing an intact uptrend in the short, medium and long-term.
Selling might accelerate should prices move below the close-by swing low at 58.32 where further sell stops could get triggered. With prices trading close to this year's high at 60.54, upside momentum might speed up should RHI be able to break out to new highs for the year.
