Here's The Coca Cola $KO Trade Level Everyone Should Know

Leading beverage company, Coca Cola Co (NYSE:KO), has been under some selling pressure since February 13, 2019. At that time, the stock was trading as high as $49.94 a share before warning about 2019 macroeconomic uncertainty and foreign exchange headwinds. Today, KO stock is trading at $45.60 a share. Traders should note that KO stock is now below its 50 and 200-day moving averages. This puts the stock in a weak technical position on the charts. The next important support level for KO stock will be around the $42.50 area. This is where the stock was defended back in May 2018 and will likely be supported again when retested.

Utility Stocks Retreat, But The Run Is Not Over Yet

The Utilities Select Sector SPDR Fund (NYSEARCA:XLU) has been on an amazing run higher since December 26, 2018. It should be noted that when interest rates decline the utility stocks will generally move higher and that is exactly what has occurred. On December 26, 2018 the popular XLU traded as low as $50.81 a share before breaking out to new 52 week highs. On March 14, 2019 the XLU traded as high as $58.74 a share before staging a minor pullback. Today, the XLU is trading around the $57.55 level. Traders and investors can easily see that the trend is up on the XLU and that another pullback in the ETF is a likely buying opportunity. At this time, the $55.00 area looks like solid daily chart support. This is where the 50 and 100-day moving averages are currently. This level should be defended when initially tested. The only thing that could disrupt the XLU trend would be higher interest rates and that is highly unlikely to occur at this time.

Caution When A Rush Of IPOs Hit The Market $LEVI

It looks as if we are having a bunch of IPOs scheduled to hit the market very soon. Today, the highly anticipated denim jean manufacturer, Levi Strauss & Co (NYSE:LEVI), became a public traded company. There are several other popular companies that are also looking to come public very soon. Some of these companies include Lyft, Uber, Pinterest, Airbnb and Palantir. Very often the overall stock market will remain strong into these important IPOs. Usually, once these IPOs are released then the markets will usually stage a correction or pullback. Does anyone remember Blackstone Group (NYSE:BX). That stock came public in July 2007 and the market indexes topped out in October 2007. Now please understand, I'm not saying we are going to face the next great recession, but we could be in store for a summertime decline. Either way, when these IPOs come out in droves it is a time for caution soon.

This Leading Gold Mining Stock $KL Is Finally Pulling Back, Watch This Trade Level

The stock broke out to the upside in December 2018 and traded as high as $36.74 a share on February 28, 2019. The stock has now made some lower highs on the daily chart and is consolidating on its 50-day moving average in a bearish manner. This pattern signals some more weakness ahead. Traders and investors should now look for daily chart support around the $29.00 area. This level is where there is an important retrace area and a rising 20-week moving average. This is usually a solid combination for a solid bounce in the stock.

The 10-Year Yield Is Testing A Critical Support Level, Watch Out Below!

Everyone is talking about about the falling yield on the 10-Year U.S. Treasury Note. Today, the 10-year yield is around 2.395%. Yesterday, the 10-year yield hit the 200-week moving average and this looks to be a critical support level. Trader and investors should note that the 10-year U.S. Treasury Note yield is in a confirmed down-trend on the daily chart. The yield has declined below it's 200 and 50-day moving averages. This is a very weak technical formation and generally a sign that bond yields will decline further in the next few months. Should yields break below this important 200- week moving average it will generally signal a move down to the 2.00% area. Should this occur then the fed funds rate (2.25 - 2.50%) would be above the 10-year Treasury Note yield. This is why the Federal Reserve would likely lower the fed funds rate in the second half of 2019.

Accenture PLC $ACN Epic Double Top After Epic Run Screams Short

Shares of Accenture PLC (ACN) surged higher this morning, hitting a new all-time high at $177.49. This surge higher is significant as price tagged and briefly crossed an epic double top from September 2017. Today's surge followed a vertical run in the stock of 34% from the December 2018 lows. With multiple overbought indicators flashing sell and an epic double top, pro traders are looking to short Accenture. They expect a classic pull back off double top to a pivot of $165.50 in the next week or two. Further out, a drop to $150 is likely. This is a classic technical trade setup for swing traders.

Walgreens $WBA Tumbles After Earnings, Here's The Trade

This morning, leading pharmacy and well-being retail store operator, Walgreens Boots Alliance (NYSE:WBA), is declining sharply after reporting earnings. The stock is trading lower by more than 12.0 percent to $55.71 a share. Traders should note that the stock has been in a down-trend since December 2018 trading below all of its major weekly chart moving averages. The next important support level on the chart will be around the $50.00 area. This is where the stock should have some solid support. This support area would be where the stock broke out of a sideways base in September 2013. There is also a major retrace level and other important major moving averages around this key area. This level should be defended by the institutional crowd when retested.

The stock has been pulling back since March 22, 2019 when it traded as high $74.77 a share. Since that recent pivot top, the stock has pulled back and is now trading at $60.33 a share. Traders and investors should note the gap fill window around the $50.00 level on a daily chart. This level should be solid support. There was sideways consolidation around the $50.00 area before the gap higher breakout move in late February 2019 making this a good support level when tested.

Big Bearish Outside Day For Cloud Based Software Stocks

This morning, most of the leading cloud based software stocks are declining sharply lower. Leading software stocks such as $ZEN, $WDAY, $CRM, $DATA, $COUP and other are falling by more than 3.0 percent today. This important industry group has been leading the technology space for all of 2019. When a leading sector loses it leadership it could just be rotation into another group or a sign of a topping market.

One stock that has caught my eye in the cloud based software sector is Zendesk Inc (NYSE:ZEN). This stock has been a major winner in 2019, but today it is declining lower by 4.62% to $81.48 a share. The stock is now forming a bearish engulfing candle on the daily chart. It is also now trading below its important 20-day moving average which has been signaling a strong up-trend for the stock until today. Should the stock close down here today it would eclipse the prior two weeks of upside and be a negative reversal day for the stock . At this time, the next important daily chart support level for ZEN would around the $75.00 area. This support level is where the stock pivoted to the upside on March 8, 2019. This will likely be defended again at this level when retested.
