Chart Analysis

The #C-RICE technical analysis of the price chart on 4-hour timeframe shows #C-RICE,H4 is rebounding toward the 200-period moving average MA(200) which is falling still. We believe the bullish momentum will continue as the #C-RICE,H4 breaches above upper Donchian boundary at 13.17. A pending order to buy can be placed above that level. The stop loss can be placed below 12.82. After placing the order, the stop loss is to be moved every day to the next fractal low, following Parabolic indicator signals. Thus, we are changing the expected profit/loss ratio to the breakeven point. If the price meets the stop loss level without reaching the order, we recommend cancelling the order: the market has undergone internal changes which were not taken into account.
