BOTTOM LINE: WHL has breached a support trendline dated back to 2011

Possible scenario:

After bouncing on its major support trendline and key support level at 6,210cps in December 2016, WHL regained upside but encountered resistance at 7,695cps. It then pulled back again - extending its short-term bear trend - and is now re-testing the 6,210cps pivotal level.

Because the 3-week RSI is mega-oversold, we expect WHL to rebound soon. However, failure to trade beyond 6,940cps would increase the chances of WHL breaching key support and abandoning its long-term bull trend. If so, go short below 6,210cps, and the target would be at 4,730cps.

Alternative scenario:

A move through 6,940cps could prompt further gains to 7,695cps. The resistance trendline of the current bear trend would then be breached above 8,120cps.
