Down Goes Delta DAL on Weekly Reversal

Jun 27, 2016: 10:18 AM CST

Delta Airlines (DAL) shares reversed their uptrend into a downtrend on the weekly frame as price continues to decline rapidly.

Let’s highlight the reversal and pinpoint the key target price in play right now:

Shares rallied strongly from 2015 to the December 2015 price peak into $52.00 per share.

Carefully view the “triple top” pattern (Red curved arrow) and the negative momentum and volume divergences that developed through 2015 ahead of the current reversal.

Price ultimately broke under a rising trendline in April that set in motion the May-to-June three-week collapse.

If you’re holding (investing) a stock with a lengthy uptrend and extended negative divergences, odds shift toward reversal instead of trend continuation – it’s time to be more defensive in these environments.

Price achieved a test (touch) of the rising 200 week moving average and reversal point from October 2014 at the $33.00 per share level.

We’ll be focusing on this pivot price and key target for any short-term trades.

It would be logical to expect a bounce off this level but if it doesn’t happen soon, we could see four, five, and more weeks to the downside toward $30.00 and lower.

Delta (DAL) gives us a good example of a strong stock stalling on divergences and then breakdown from up to down ahead of a rapid collapse (which we’re seeing now).

    In my view the reversals can be great time to enter into, but we got to make sure we pick the right entry and if we miss out on it then we should simple walk away instead of sticking with it. I always go with proper way and method, it’s something that always lead me to great rewards and I am able to work quite nicely while it also helps to be with OctaFX broker where through their tiny spreads, high leverages and magnificent 50% bonus, I can work with ever ease.
