Big -7.67% Change: After closing the last trading session at $3.52, RPC opened today at $3.50 and has reached a low of $3.25.

Trade approach: A movement as big as -7.67% is a significantly bearish indicator, so this trade is designed to be profitable if RES maintains its current direction and does not revert back to pricing on the bullish side of $3.25 on 17-Jul-2020.
