The Robinhood Chart: Robinhood began trading in a strong and consistent uptrend on June 17, when the stock printed a double bottom at the $6.81 level on that day and the day prior. On Wednesday, Robinhood confirmed the uptrend was still intact by printing another high.
- The most recent higher low in Robinhood’s uptrend was formed on July 26 at $8.37 and the most recent confirmed higher high was printed at the $9.50 level on July 21. Over the coming days, Robinhood will likely retrace to print another higher low and to consolidate.
- A retracement is likely because Robinhood’s relative strength index (RSI) is measuring in at about 69%. When a stock’s RSI reaches or exceeds the 70% level, it becomes overbought, which can be a sell signal for technical traders.
- Traders can watch for Robinhood to print a bearish reversal candlestick, such as a shooting star candlestick or gravestone doji to signal the temporary top is in. Traders not already in a position can then watch for a bullish reversal candlestick to print above the $8.40 level.
- Robinhood has resistance above at $12.77 and $17.08 and support below at $9.94 and $7.71.
