The monthly 7-year chart of Abbvie shows a gradual uptrend that the stock has been in, forming higher lows over the years. After reaching a peak in early 2018, the uptrend was reversed and the price fell significantly by 44% and hit a low in August 2019. The price broke through an important resistance line at 70 and touched the bottom of the long-term trend.
However, since September 2019, the stock has bounced back up and is currently up 41% from its August 2019 lows. Recently, in April 2020, the stock retraced from the support-resistance line at 70 and is now poised to rise to 115-120 levels. A long position can, therefore, be initiated with a stop loss at the bottom of the long-term trend, just below the 70 support-resistance line.
Positions taken today at $92.67 with a stop loss 31.4% below at $63,58. Take profit point at $128 giving a profit of 38%
