BATS:RKLB   Rocket Lab USA, Inc.
Rocket Lab USA, Inc. has recently been awarded two significant contracts by the US Space Force, underlining its capacity as a comprehensive provider of defence space services, including both payload development and launch capabilities.

The first contract, valued at 14.5 million USD, involves the launch of the DISKSat experimental satellite.

Turning to the financial markets, here is an analysis of Rocket Lab USA, Inc. (NASDAQ: RKLB) stock based on the latest technical indicators:

On the Daily (D1) timeframe, Rocket Lab's shares have recently breached the support level at 3.75 USD, establishing a new resistance at 3.95 USD. Although the stock is currently on a downtrend, the rate of decline is moderating, as indicated by the tightening channel between the current support and resistance levels. Should the downtrend persist, the next target price may be around 3.57 USD.

Conversely, if the stock can overcome the 3.95 USD resistance level, a buying opportunity arises with a short-term price target of 4.70 USD. Looking ahead from a medium-term perspective, maintaining a long position up to the 5.65 USD level could be advantageous.
