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!
