Lockheed Martin Corp. operates as a global security and aerospace company, which engages in the research, design, development, manufacture, integration, and sustainment of technology systems, products, and services. It operates through the following business segments: Aeronautics, Missiles and Fire Control, Rotary and Mission Systems and Space.

Take a look at the 1-year chart of Lockheed (NYSE: LMT) below with my added notations:

Over the past 3 months, LMT has formed a key level of resistance to watch at the $400 (red) mark. The stock looks as if it may be on its way back up to that level again, and a solid close above $400 should lead to higher prices for LMT.

The Tale of the Tape: LMT has a key level of resistance at $400. A long trade could be entered on a breakthrough of that level. However, if you are bearish on the stock, a short trade could be made on any rallies up to $400.

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!

Good luck!
