Always trade in the direction of the major trend
BCE chart analysis.  Always trade in the direction of the major trend.

BCE 4 Year Candlestick Chart

This is not the first time I have posted a chart for BCE where I emphasized the most important principle of technical analysis: Always trade in the direction of the major trend. Is there any doubt about the major trend for BCE? The 200 Day SMA is a good approximation of the trendline.

The current resistance level is $43.00 and there is a good chance that BCE will break above this resistance level when it reports before the bell on Wednesday.

Compare the above chart for BCE to the chart for the TSX Index.

The following are samples of my previous posts for BCE:

What was the reaction on the chart to the earnings release for BCE?

BCE Daily Candlestick Chart

It is very important to evaluate the reaction on the chart to a earnings release or company announcement: this is the only thing that counts.

What are the key points on the above chart?

  • Tall bullish white candlestick in reaction to the results.
  • Above average volume for the candlestick is confirming the uptrend.
  • On Balance Volume (OBV) is confirming the move.
  • Relative Strength Index (RSI) is confirming the move.
  • RSI is overbought but this is normal on a fast upward move.
  • $38.00 is near-term resistance

Based on the chart, I have an intermediate target of $40.00 for BCE. Investors are moving money into stable dividend paying utilities, and BCE has a very attractive yield.

Reference the previous chart analysis for BCE based on the daily chart. And reference the previous analysis based on the weekly chart.

BCE Six-Month Daily Candlestick Chart Analysis

Updated BCE chart analysis published August 3, 2012

Some key points from the above daily chart are:

  • A bullish shaven head (closes on the high) candlestick has closed above resistance of $36.75.
  • The near-term trend is up as indicated by the two bullish candlesticks.
  • On Balance Volume (OBV) is confirming the near-term uptrend.
  • The MACD is confirming the near-term uptrend.
  • Volume is ok but a little light for the two bullish candlesticks.

I use the above analysis as one of the inputs for a derivative trading strategy. Derivatives will not be reviewed in this post.

Reference the previous analysis of BCE based on the weekly chart.

BCE  will release quarterly results on Thursday, May 12, 2011.  It is important to monitor the reaction on the chart to these results.

Update May 12, 2011:  Here are the results.  Now you have to monitor the reaction on the charts.
