As the market continues to sell off this morning, traders should take a look at NetApp (NTAP). The stock is nearing a support level and if it’s broken, a strong move lower may occur.
NTAP is a leading provider of enterprise data management and storage solutions. The company transitioned from a data center storage firm to providing software data management solutions for multi-cloud environments. It is poised to benefit from an increased adoption of cloud-integrated all-flash solutions and hybrid multi-cloud offerings.
Take a look at the 1-year chart of NTAP below with added notations:
Chart of NTAP provided by TradingView
NTAP has formed an important level of support at $40 (green) over the past several months. The stock has consistently managed to rally off this level, and now it’s nearing $40 again.
If the stock moves beneath the support level, a trader could enter a short position below $40 with the expectation for a breakdown.
