1-year chart of Range (NYSE: RRC)
Like most energy names, RRC declined persistently into the beginning of the year. The stock then formed a double bottom price pattern, and then confirmed that pattern in April. The double bottom pattern, and confirmation, formed a $55 price level (blue) that has become important to the stock. Not only was the $55 mark the resistance point between the two bottoms, but that level was also support after the stock broke higher in April.

The Tale of the Tape: RRC has a key level at $55. A trader could enter a long position on a pullback down to $55 with a stop placed under the level. However, if the stock were to break back below $55, a short trade could be made instead.
