Please take a look at the 1-year chart of CHRW (C.H. Robinson Worldwide, Inc.) below with my added notations:
CHRW has been holding a very important level of support at $56 (green) for almost the entire duration of the 1-year chart. No matter what the market has or has not done over that period of time, CHRW has held that $56 level all but in the month of August. The stock approaching $56 again should provide another bounce higher, but if the overall market continues to sell-off, CHRW could break that support.
The Tale of the Tape: CHRW has a very strong level of support at $56. A trader could enter a long position at $56 with a stop placed under the level. If the stock were to break below the support, a short position would be recommended instead.
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!
