RCII had a rough go of things from October through March. Since that low, the stock appears to have formed a double bottom (green) price pattern. The pattern is as simple as it sounds: Bottoming, rallying up to a point, selling back off to a similar bottom, and then rallying back up again.
As with any price pattern, a confirmation of the pattern is needed. RCII would confirm the pattern by breaking up through the $30 resistance (blue) that has been created by the double bottom pattern.

The Tale of the Tape: After trending lower into March, RCII has formed a double bottom price pattern. A long trade could be entered on a break above the $30 resistance with a stop placed under that level.
