  • Resistance Levels: 58.30

The company's shares stabilized near historical highs. At the moment, the issuer is consolidating. The key support and resistance levels are 57.00 and 58.30, respectively. Indicators do not give accurate signals:

  • - The price is testing 50 MA;
  • - The MACD histogram is in the positive zone but has started to decline.

We recommend opening positions from key levels.

If the price fixes above 58.30, the global uptrend is expected to continue. The immediate goal for profit taking is 59.00-60.00. When following positions, we recommend using a trailing stop.

Alternative option. If the price fixes below the round level of 57.00, it is necessary to look for entry points to the market to open short positions. The movement is tending to 55.60-54.80.
