The long-term monthly chart for Quaker Chemical Corporation shows a steady uptrend with a major pullback in 2019 and early 2020 that saw the price test the bottom of the long-term trend. The price broke the trendline briefly before trending back up. Since the pandemic-driven crash of March 2020, the price has risen almost 3X, peaking at $300. The $225 level is an important area of value as it acted as resistance in 2019 and is now supporting the price that fell 25% from its $300 peak. A reversal is in play now, and the likely target appears to be $288 and then $300. A stop-loss can be placed below the support level at around $218.
