Take a look at the 1-year chart of GDS (NASDAQ: GDS) below with added notations:
GDS had been trending higher for most of the past year before stalling at the $65 (green) mark. After a swift decline, the stock rallied back and ran into trouble at that same $65 level, once again. Now that GDS has broken above the resistance, higher prices should be expected, and $65 may become the new support.
The Tale of the Tape: GDS broke its 52-week resistance of $65. 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 $65 could negate the expectations for a higher move.
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!
