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.
