Close price at the end of the last trading day (Thursday, 18th Apr 2019) of the OSB.L stock was £443.60. This is 0.36% less than the trading day before Wednesday, 17th Apr 2019.

Norbord Inc lies in the upper part of a wide and strong rising trend in the short term, and this will normally pose a very good selling opportunity for the short-term trader as reaction back towards the lower part of the trend can be expected. A break-up at the top trend line at £448.76 will firstly indicate a stronger raising rate. Given the current short-term trend, the stock is expected to rise 10.59% during the next 3 months and, with 90% probability hold a price between £421.22 and £496.29 at the end of this period.

There are mixed signals in the stock today. A sales signal was issued from a pivot top point on Tuesday April 16, 2019, which indicates further falls until a new bottom pivot has been found. Volume rose on falling prices yesterday. This may be an early warning and the stock should be followed more closely. Norbord Inc holds buy signals from both short- and long-term moving averages. In addition, there is a general buy signal from the relation between the two signals where the short-term average is above the long-term average. On corrections down there will be some support from the lines at £434.77 and £399.67. A break down below any of these levels will issue sell signals.

RSI14 is 90 and the stock is extremely overbought on RSI14, so further reactions should be expected. Some stocks may have a long and hard correction after reaching so high an RSI, but not in all cases. However, the short-term risk has increased drastically and larger movements in the next couple of days can be expected.

Support & Resistance

Norbord Inc finds support from accumulated volume at £439.80.

Support: £439.80 Price: £443.60 Resistance: £445.20


This stock may move much during a day (volatility) and with a large prediction interval from the Bollinger Band this stock is considered to be "high risk". During the last day, the stock moved £6.40 between high and low, or 1.45%. For the last week, the stock has had a daily average volatility of 3.09%.

The stock is overbought on RSI14 and lies in the upper part of the trend. Normally this will pose a good selling opportunity for the short-term trader, but some stocks may go long and hard while being overbought. Regardless, the high RSI together with the trend position increases the risk and higher daily movements (volatility) should be expected. A correction down in the nearby future seems very likely and it is of great importance that the stock manages to break the trend before that occurs.

Our recommended stoploss: £429.16 (-3.26%) (This stock has medium daily movements and this gives medium risk. The RSI14 is 90 and this increases the risk substantially. There is a sell signal from pivot top found 2 days ago.)

Overall risk:

Very Low Low Medium High Very High
