Please take a look at the 1-year chart of JAH (Jarden Corporation) below with my added notations:

1-year chart of JAH (Jarden Corporation)

JAH has a current level of resistance at $46 (red). The stock also has a common lower level at $44 (blue) that has previously acted as support and resistance. Below those levels you can see that $42 (teal) had been a key area of support. So, in addition to showing clear levels of support/resistance, JAH is also showing you that it tends to react to each $2 increment.

The Tale of the Tape: JAH is currently trading between its $44 and $46 levels. A long position could be entered at $44 or on a break above $46 with a stop placed below the level of entry. If JAH breaks below $44, another long play could be made at $42.

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!
