RNG Technical Analysis


RNG gapped up in price yesterday to $21.16, up from the prior day’s close of $19.35, which is a 9% increase on the favorable news. Taking a look at the daily chart, we can see the last time RNG traded above this price level was on March 16th 2014, when it closed at $21.48. As we can see, the gap up in price has put the stock at its 52 week high. Stocks generally like to spike up through their 52 week highs so I will be looking to go long near the open. RNG has a float of 52.68 million shares and is trading at 3 times the normal daily trading volume. RNG did reach pre market highs of $21.50, but it gave back $0.34 at the open, or equivalent to 2%. For trading purposes, my entry point would have been  $21.25 looking for a run up to $22. My stop loss would have been $21.10 fearing anything below that and the stock would start to fill in the gap up.
