Boeing Daily Chart Analysis
- The stock looks to have been rejected at a resistance level and could be heading back toward support in what technical traders call a descending triangle pattern.
- The $205 price level is an area where the stock has been able to hold as support in the past, but could be broken in time if the stock continues to test this area. The pattern resistance has been a place the stock struggles to cross above in the past and may continue to in the future.
- The stock trades below both the 50-day moving average (green) and the 200-day moving average (blue), indicating the stock is likely facing a period of bearish sentiment.
- Each of these moving averages may hold as a potential area of resistance in the future.
- The Relative Strength Index (RSI) has been moving lower the past few days and sits at 45. This shows the stock has seen a drop in the amount of buying pressure and there are now more sellers than buyers.
