Royal Bank of Canada chart analysis indicates a bottom
The intermediate trend for RBC is sideways and the near-term trend is down. The $45.00 support level was tested in September, October and November: the support level has held. There is an old trading axiom that advises you to never try and catch a falling knife. But a small position at this level is a relatively low risk entry point as you monitor the chart for a breakout above resistance around the $50.00 level. A break below $45.00 would be a reason to liquidate the long positions.
