New York, June 25th (TradersHuddle.com) - Shares of Gildan Activewear Inc. (NYSE:GIL) closed the trading day higher by $0.19 or 0.71% from its previous close. Gildan's price action formed what is considered to be a doji close, where the open and close prices are very close to each other, mainly signaling an indecision between buyers and sellers.
Gildan Activewear Inc. (NYSE:GIL) is a vertically-integrated marketer and manufacturer of quality branded basic apparel. Its main focus is activewear, selling it principally in the wholesale imprinted activewear segment of the North American apparel market. Gildan sells cotton T-shirts, placket collar golf shirts, tank tops, and sweatshirts. The Company is also a leading supplier of private label and Gildan branded socks primarily sold to mass-market retailers.
Gildan's trading range is defined by a trough, which marked calculated support at $22.18 and by a peak that set the resistance point at $28.02. These levels are closely watched by traders managing their positions.
Traders wanting to establish a position in Gildan or traders that are already holding the stock can use the doji close to their advantage, since the pattern present a short-term pause in the stock's price action. This pause results in an entry point for traders depending of which way the stock resolves this short-term indecision.
The Doji is an important candlestick pattern that provides information on their own and as components in a number of important patterns. Doji form when a security's open and close are virtually equal. The length of the upper and lower shadows can vary and the resulting candlestick looks like a cross, inverted cross or plus sign. Alone, doji are neutral patterns.
Any bullish or bearish bias is based on preceding price action and future confirmation. In the case of Gildan, given that the stock finished the session higher, bulls should monitor their positions for confirmation that the stock will continue higher by taking its intraday high.
