Thomson Reuters (TRI:TSX) candlestick chart analysis

Shooting star candlestick at resistance of $30.00
Thomson Reuters six month daily candlestick chart showing a shooting star candlestick as a reaction to the earnings release.

Thomson Reuters (TRI:TSX) Daily Chart

There was a positive reaction to the earnings release for Thomson Reuters as indicated by the gap and the close of $29.78. But the shooting star candlestick is a graphical representation of the selling pressure at the $30.00 resistance level. The stock opened at $29.75, rallied to $30.21 but closed at $29.78: practically unchanged from the open.

The trend is everything in technical analysis. The major trend is down for Thomson Reuters, the intermediate trend is sideways and the near-term trend is up.

A confirmed break (use the percentage and time filter) above resistance of $30.00 would indicate an intermediate target price of $33.00. If the stock cannot break resistance, it will continue to trade in the congestion zone with support around the $28.00 level.
