RSA Insurance Group (RSA.L) Technical Analysis Report for Jul 13, 2018 | by Techniquant Editorial Team
RSA.L ended the week -0.37% lower at 646.60 after losing £2.40 (-0.37%) today on high volume. Closing below Thursday's low at 647.20, the stock confirms its breakout through the prior session's low having traded £2.20 below it intraday. Ending with a weak close near the low of the day sets a bearish note for the next session.
Daily Candlestick Chart (RSA.L as at Jul 13, 2018):
Friday's trading range was £9.00 (1.38%), that's slightly below last trading month's daily average range of £9.94. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is below the markets average with the monthly volatility being slightly below average.
After having been unable to move above 654.00 in the previous session, the share ran into sellers again around the same price level today, failing to move higher than 654.00.
Although still in a long-term uptrend, the short and medium-term trends both turned bearish already. RSA Insurance broke below the 100-day moving average at 647.69 today for the first time since July 11th.
Selling might speed up should prices move below the close-by swing low at 641.80 where further sell stops could get activated. Trading close to May's low at 634.00 we might see further downside momentum if potential sell stops at the level get triggered.
