Chart of FNF provided by TradingView

FNF has formed an important level of support at the $30 mark (blue) over the past couple of months. The level was resistance back in April, support at the beginning of June, and now the stock is sitting at $30. FNF has not been able to rally off of, nor break, $30 could mean a big move is brewing.

A resistance level is a price point that a security such as a stock has trouble exceeding over a specific period of time. FNF has a key level at $30. A trader could enter a long position on a pullback down to that level with a stop placed under it. 

The market has opened flat, so keep an eye on its resistance level. Make sure to set an alert for this stock so that you know when it’s five to ten percent away from its resistance level.

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 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 still key!

Good luck!
