International Business Machines (IBM)

Eight weeks ago, we stated, "In general, odds favor being long." Price action held support at $182.00, and has been on a bullish tear ever since. For last six trading sessions, the stock has been consolidating within a bull flag, but the next day or two are critical. Time has almost run out, as IBM could retrace lower especially if confirmation of a daily close below $197.24 is posted. Look to book some profits to allocate lower. Algorithm Buy/Sell Rating: Rated a Buy for eight days, and is down -0.24% since being rated a (4) Buy.

UPDATE: Three weeks ago, as Intel was trading near $25.00, we stated, "Odds favor a retest of the $28.00 region at this juncture, but it will take considerable concerted buying. Also, $24.50 represents key support." Subsequently, the market held at the $25.00 area and even violated our resistance of $26.50 during the last few trading sessions. The 21- day moving average line is currently sloping positive. Critical near-term support is at Tuesday's close.
