Two shaven head candlesticks bode well for the uptrend
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.
