    Hello RonBC,

    Can you please shed your thoughts and TA on teck/ ? If this $32 level holds, i suspect it is a decent buy in? Or do you feel it has a higher likelyhood of heading to a lower support?


  4. Ron/BC Says:

    TECK/ bounced off of long term support at $31.40 along with the RSI 8 re-crossing back above the 30 line. Should be good for a bounce although it has already picked up a buck. Odds are good for a bounce back……….Would not hold it below $31.
