Please take a look at the 1-year chart of MSG (The Madison Square Garden Company) below with my added notations:

1-year chart of MSG (The Madison Square Garden Company)

MSG had held a very important level of support of $55 (red) back in February, March and April. The stock then rallied higher and peaked in the $63 area a couple of times. Now, MSG is approaching $55 again and that might provide another bounce higher, but the stock’s recent downward move could be setting the stock up for a breakdown.

The Tale of the Tape: MSG has a key level of support at $55. A trader could enter a long position at $55 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!

Good luck!
