To review Jones’ stock, please take a look at the 1-year chart of JLL (Jones Lang LaSalle, Inc.) below with my added notations:

1-year chart of JLL (Jones Lang LaSalle, Inc.)

While trading sideways over the last (3) months, JLL has formed a solid resistance at $100 (red). That resistance would also provide a 52-week high breakout if the stock could manage to break above it. In addition, the stock has been climbing a trendline of support (blue) since last August. At some point, the stock will eventually have to break one of those two levels.

The Tale of the Tape: JLL has an up trending support and a 52-week resistance level to watch. A long trade could be made on a breakout above the $100 resistance or on a pullback to the support, which currently sits near $93. A break below the up trending support could be an opportunity to enter a short trade.

Would you like assistance in making your TBS trades? If so, email me at Christian@yolopub.com and let’s talk about working together one on one!

Before making any trading decision, decide which side of the trade you believe gives you the highest probability of success. Do you prefer the short side of the market, long side, or do you want to be in the market at all? If you haven’t thought about it, review the overall indices themselves. For example, take a look at the S&P 500. Is it trending higher or lower? Has it recently broken through a key resistance or support level? Making these decisions ahead of time will help you decide which side of the trade you believe gives you the best opportunities.

No matter what your strategy or when you decide to enter, always remember to use protective stops and you’ll be around for the next trade. Capital preservation is always key!

Good luck!
