KapStone Paper has taken out an uptrend line drawn off its lows since November and its 50-day moving average, trading down nearly 2% recently in today's session. A close at this level would also remove any support that was being supplied by this month's low.
The better performers on their 50-day average test are H&R Block (HRB), Questar (STR), the natural gas utility, and staffing-and-business services company Robert Half International RHI. The chart shows H&R Block up nearly 3% recently in today's session, forming a bullish two-day reversal candle combination. A bounce off an uptrend line extending from the October low on Friday has continued in today's session and taken out the 50-day moving average.
Questar bounced off its 50-day average last week and the momentum into today's session is taking it above a resistance line drawn off its November and December highs. A confirmed break would establish a double bottom o (RHI)n the chart.
Robert Half is extending last week's bounce off its 50-day average and a close near current levels would establish a bullish two-day reversal candle combination, similar to the one seen in November, and re-establish the uptrend.These stocks need to close above or below their respective levels of support and resistance before they become trading candidates and they require disciplined trailing stops.
