On a daily chart, Air China (753.hk) may have shown a key turnaround after breaking above a long term bearish trend line. Currently, it is moving higher and away from both the 20-day and 50-day moving averages, while the relative strength index has jumped to the 70s. The level at $5.48 might be considered as the key support, while the 1st and 2nd resistance are expected to be located at $6.93 and $7.60 respectively.
