BOTTOM LINE: SHP has surpassed its all-time high

Possible scenario:

SHP has remained bullish after breaching the upper slope of its medium-term bear channel and confirming a positive breakout above 19,295cps. It’s currently encountering resistance at 21,450cps, and has surpassed its all-time high at 21,180cps.

The 3-week RSI is trading in a symmetrical triangle, which means volatility may persist until a breakout in either direction occurs. If the RSI remains bullish, a move above 21,450cps would be possible - so increase long positions above that level. Our target remains at 25,500cps.

Alternative scenario:

Close long positions on downside through 19,295cps; a downside to 18,175cps could follow. The 16,685cps level would be tested if selling persists.
