BOTTOM LINE: BAT has breached the resistance trend-line of its long-term bear trend and is ranging between 4,500cps and 3,315cps.

Possible scenario:

BAT is again encountering resistance at 4,500cps. If support holds firmly above 3,960cps, prepare to go long through the 4,500cps mark. A positive breakout of the sideways pattern would be confirmed above that level.

Because BAT has encountered major resistance there a few times before, the breakout could be rapid towards 5,150cps. In that case, increase positions above that level. Resistance at 5,785cps could then be targeted.

Alternative scenario:

A reversal through 3,960cps, including the 3W RSI breaching the lower slope of its bull channel, could see BAT return to the 3,315cps key support mark. If so, go short below that level. Keep in mind that the 2,490cps level could be retested.
