On a daily chart, the stock remains trading within the ascending triangle. A upside breakout could mean the bullish reversal signal. Otherwise, A break below the rising trend line could signal a continuation of the previous down trend.

In fact, both 20-day and 50-day moving averages are flattening. The RSI is capped by a resistance level at 59, but supported by a rising trend line at same time. Both indicators would suggest the lack of momentum for the prices.

In this case, the reader should consider a neutral bias and focus on the breakout signal in the future. 

A clear break above HK$17.20 (the high of April) could consider a rise to the next resistance level at HK$19.26 (the high of March.

In an alternative scenario, crossing below HK$15.00 (the previous low) might bring a return to $13.12 (the low of March).
