Tilray Daily Chart Analysis

  • The stock trades in what traders call a falling wedge pattern. This pattern forms when the stock is in a downward trend but the highs are falling at a steeper rate than the lows. The stock is sitting in the middle of the pattern and would need to cross above resistance to see a bullish reversal. But until that happens, the stock may continue to fall lower in the pattern.
  • The stock trades below both the 50-day moving average (green) and the 200-day moving average (blue). This indicates bearish sentiment and each of these moving averages may hold as an area of resistance in the future.
  • The Relative Strength Index (RSI) has been falling lower the past couple of weeks and sits at 37. This shows more sellers have been moving into the stock and pushing the price lower. If the RSI continues to stay below the middle line the stock may keep seeing selling pressure.

What’s Next For Tilray?

Tilray continues to fall in the wedge pattern and has been in the bearish trend since mid-2021. Unless the RSI can cross back above the middle line or the stock can cross above the resistance level, the stock will most likely continue to see a bearish downward trend. Bullish traders are looking for higher lows to form and for the RSI to hold above the middle line. Bears are in control of the stock and would like the RSI to continue to stay low and the price to hold below the moving averages.
