BOTTOM LINE: NPN is forming falling tops in its major bull trend

Currently testing a significant support trend-line dated back to December 2016, NPN may bounce there and recover towards 361,500cps.
However, if the 3-week RSI should remain bearish, even after a potential recovery on the price chart, we would expect NPN to reverse below 361,500cps and resume its near-term bear trend through the 285,500cps support level. In this case, go short or increase shorts. The correction would persist to either the blue bold trend-line, or the 246,500cps level.
NPN would have to trade above 361,500cps to negate the falling-tops formation – only then would we anticipate gains back to 414,300cps.
