A key level of resistance has formed on the Caterpillar Inc. (CAT) chart.  If this market continues to rally everyday, this level could be eclipsed soon.

Caterpillar is the largest manufacturer of heavy equipment, power solutions, and locomotives. While the company has seen reduced demand due to the coronavirus, its cash and liquidity remain strong. Cash and short-term investments were $8.8 billion through the second quarter. The company has also reduced discretionary expenses and suspended 2020 base salary increases due to the pandemic.

Take a look at the 1-year chart of CAT below with added notations:

 

Chart of CAT provided by TradingView

Over the course of the past six months, CAT has formed a key level of resistance at $140 (blue line). The stock has tested that $140 level several times since the beginning of the year.

If/when the stock were to surpass and close above $140, a trader could buy the stock with the expectation of a breakout.

The stock is currently trading less than 5% away from the $140 resistance level, so keep an eye out on CAT this week as the market continues to trend higher.
