Candlestick chart analysis 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.
