Chart of the Day: Goldman Sachs (GS)

NYSE: GS | Goldman Sachs Group, Inc. (The)  News, Ratings, and Charts

GS – Goldman Sachs (GS) has tested it’s trend line 5 times in the past 3.5 months.

Since hitting 52-week lows in March, Goldman Sachs (GS) has been trending higher.  As it does, a trend line and a support level have formed, which can be helpful to investors looking to trade this stock.

A trend line is a straight line connecting at least two price points and then extends into the future to act as a line of support or resistance.  It’s my opinion that any 2 points can start a trend line but when the stock tests the trend line 3 times or more, it becomes more relevant.

In this case, GS has tested it’s trend line (blue) 5 times in the past 3.5 months.

Also in the chart below, you’ll see that I have identified a support level (green) at $195.

Notice that right now the trend line and the support level are intersecting at $195.

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

If GS falls under $195, a trader could enter a short position with the expectation that there will be a breakdown lower in the stock price because the trendline and support level would be breached.

Why could this stock move lower?  Because banks have been hit hard COVID-19. GS is currently trading about 20% off it’s 52-week high, as the S&P 500 is only down about 7%.  

Keep an eye on GS and be mindful of their next earnings report which will be released on August 10th.

Have a good trading day!

3 Small-Cap Chinese Stocks to Buy in March

The Chinese economy was able to recover from the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic quicker than the rest of the world thanks to its government’s robust measures to curb the spread of the virus and reopen its industries. With an increasing government crackdown now on Chinese industry leaders, we believe small-cap stocks there, such as Cango (CANG), Qudian (QD), and China Online Education Group (COE), hold better growth potential.

Down 9% in 2021, is Now a Good Time to Scoop Up Pfizer Stock?

Pfizer (PFE) is at the forefront of the fight against COVID-19 with its FDA authorized vaccine now being deployed. Despite its stock’s recent retreat due increasing competition and its relatively unimpressive quarterly results, we think it wise to bet on PFE now because it is trading at a discount to its peers. Also, PFE is expected to gain significantly in the coming months based on growing demand for its products.
