14:39 EDTITWIllinois Tool Works technical notes ahead of earnings
The shares have turned in a flat performance in the last three months, but have traded in a relatively wide range. The peak of price for that range was at $89.50, the 52-week high with $84 the low. Price was last at $84.74. With the recent decline from peak, the stock has broken the longer-term uptrend in place since the lows of February. The 10-day and 50-day moving averages have bearishly crossed, indicating a loss of upside momentum. On worse than anticipated results or guidance, the 200-day moving average at $82.49 would be a first and important test of support. A breakdown below the 200-day would be bearish for the long-term and is a sell signal in many trading systems with long time frames. Additional support below $82.49 would be at $79.47 and $76.25. On better than expected news, resistance would be at $87, the 50-day moving average. It would take a move back above the 50-day to put the shares back on a bullish footing. Next resistance would be at $89.50, the life high for the stock. Any move above that level would have no resistance to encounter, with $90 and $92.50 as possible objectives.
