Largest Corporate High Yield Bond ETF (HYG) Faces Long-Term Resistance?

iShares iBoxx $ High Yield Corporate Bond ETF (HYG) is the largest U,S. corporate high yield bond exchange traded fund (ETF) with total assets exceeding $12.64 million at the time this article was written.

Below is a daily chart (unadjusted prices) for HYG with support and resistance lines.  It appears HYG is currently re-testing resistance line R1 after rebounding off support line S1 in early August.  HYG is relatively neutral in terms of oversold/overbought conditions per the RSI (Relative Strength Index - upper part of chart).

Per support line S1, the long-term trend for HYG is still up.  Many investors may be surprised if HYG continues its long-term advance within the bounds of support line S1 and resistance line R2.
