The Tide May Be Shifting for Wal-Mart as it Crosses Above Its 20 Day Moving Average

The Hourly View for Wal-Mart

  • Currently, WMT’s price is down $-0.14 (-0.09%) from the hour prior.
  • This move is a reversal from the hour prior, which saw price move up.
  • If you’re a trend trader, consider that the strongest clear trend on the hourly chart exists on the 100 hour timeframe.
  • Price action traders may also wish to note that we see a pin bar candlestick pattern on Wal-Mart. Given that we see an uptrend on the 10 hourly candle timeframe, and that such candlestick patterns often denote reversals, this may be worth noting. With that said, traders should also note the downtrend on the 20 hourly candle timeframe, so the meaning of the candles may require further exploration.
  • Of note is that the 200 hour changed directions on WMT; it is now pointing down. The moving averages on the hourly timeframe suggest a choppiness in price, as the 20, 50, 100 and 200 are all in a mixed alignment — meaning the trend across timeframes is inconsistent, indicating a potential opportunity for rangebound traders.
