Support & Resistance

The stock is extremely overbought on RSI14 (77). Normally this will pose a good selling opportunity, but since the stock has broken the trend up the chance for a major correction due to high RSI is very small as the stock will find support at the trend broken.

Our recommended stoploss: $53.64 (-4.54%) (This stock has medium daily movements and this gives medium risk. The RSI14 is 77 and this increases the risk substantially. There is a buy signal from pivot bottom found 10 days ago.)

Very Low Low Medium High Very High
