The long-term monthly chart for Colgate-Palmolive shows a mix of uptrends and sideways movements. The period from 2011 to 2015 was a strong uptrend. It was followed by three years of lateral movement from 2015 to 2018 as the price found resistance at the $74 level. The price hit a low of $57 towards the end of 2018 before starting another phase of an uptrend. In the last three years, the trend has been higher tops and higher bottoms, and the price has primarily respected the bottom trendline. The $74 level continued to act as a resistance zone, but it turned into a support zone once the price broke out. Currently, the price is near the $74 level and also near the bottom trend line. It appears to have reversed, and an extended position can, therefore, be initiated. The likely target is $85, and a stop loss can be placed below the support level at around $72.
