Square enjoyed a run to new highs in August, successfully fighting off the bear-market lows from May.
However, since topping out in August, the stock has been plagued by a series of lower highs, as the stock has continued to trend lower.
The stock is rallying on Tuesday, up almost 3% after some bullish commentary from Atlantic Equities.
With the rally, Square is trying to reclaim a key moving average. Let’s look at the chart.
Trading Square Stock
As you can see above, Square is trying to reclaim the 200-day moving average with today’s rally. If it can do that, bulls may be able to recapture some momentum.
Above the 200-day moving average and the 61.8% retracement will be on the table, along with the $250 level.
If we zoom out to the start of the year, investors will notice how important this area has been for the stock. It has flip-flopped between support and resistance during that time, acting as a notable pivot depending on the trend.
Reclaiming this area opens the door to a test of the 50-day moving average and downtrend resistance (blue line).
Clearing these measures could put the key $275 resistance area on the table.
On the downside, the 50-week moving average will be important to keep an eye on. This measure was strong support near the bear-market low, although Square stock did waver around this measure earlier this month.
On a weekly basis though, the stock did not close below the 50-week moving average last week.
Should Square take out this week’s low at $232, it could open the door to the October low near $223. Below that could eventually put the $200 area in play.
So do we have the all-clear? No, not yet. Square needs to clear the 200-day moving average, then $250. But if it can do that, it could enjoy a solid fourth-quarter rally.
