Chart of LIVN provided by TradingView
After dropping in the month of March, LIVN rallied and then has moved a sideways trading range for the last 5 months. While in the range, the stock has formed a key resistance area at $57.5 (red), and an important level of support at $45 (green). At some point, the stock will have to either break the $57.5 level or the $45 support.
The possible long positions on the stock would be on a breakout above $57.5. The ideal short opportunity would be on a break below $45. Currently the stock is trading within 4% of the $45 support level. So keep a close eye LIVN.
