Take a look at the 1-year chart of Lowe’s (NYSE: LOW) below with added notations:
LOW had stalled at the same $180 resistance (blue) multiple times over the most six months, but now that the stock has broken above that mark, while also hitting a new 52-week high, overall higher prices should be coming. If LOW pulls back, the $180 level should provide some support.
The possible long position on the stock would be on a pullback down to that level with a stop placed under it. A failure to hold $180 could negate the expectations for a higher move.
