Trading Performance


The Bank Of Montreal fell on the date of its earnings release. It generally declined to at least -2.64% despite exceeding the results of the market expectation.

"Given that investors overweight on BMO shares are likely positioned as such due to its above-average exposure to U.S. banking, we expect any relative upside will be muted given the weaker loan trends," Eight Capital analyst’ Steve Theriault told reports.

As for its Relative Strength Index, the earnings decline pushed further down the 30’s region. It last hit this region in the preceding weeks and currently, it is at 36.22. The amount of bears in the chart performance did pull down the stock congruently. The latest trade had no highs.

However, in its Coppock Curve indication, the Bank of Montreal remained flat despite the declines in its chart performance. Now at -3.19, the stock can still rebound but a much preferred sell would be the recommended position for the stock as it is still at the negative region.
