Metrics As of Close 28 April 2017:
The Trader Says:
Pfizer PFE is expected to report earnings on Tuesday 2 May 2017 before the cash market opens. The chart suggests price could move either way, but then that’s always the case no? That said, the overall sentiment and path of least resistance in the stock is higher. I would wait for a break through daily resistance… assuming daily support isn’t violated (perhaps as a result of Tuesday’s earnings report) to provide a good support and resistance backdrop. A break through that daily resistance will provide the first half of higher highs and higher lows… you can then use daily support as a place to place your stop.
As always, newsflow will have an impact, so be sure to have those stops in the market.
Mind your risk.
