KRE has experienced a rally that started in February of 2016. This rally picked up speed following the election last November, as KRE almost went vertical. The move up was strong enough to push KRE above 2007 highs, for a couple of months. Breaking above 2007 highs was bullish price action. Since hitting highs near the end of February this year, KRE has declined around 15%, following a bearish reversal pattern (bearish wick) the last week of the month. This decline now has KRE testing 2007 highs for the first time in history, as support at (1) above.
