Best Buy (BBY) was all but thrown out in the retail washout a few years ago. 2017 was a huge year for the stock. In 2018, the stock has consolidated all year. Now Best Buy sits just below a buy point on a breakout trade plan.
The SCTR is holding in above 50 but is still pointed down at this point. After consolidating for so many months, it has lost a little price momentum. The Full Stochastic indicator suggests the trend is turning up again. Currently the stock trades sideways in a 7-week sideways consolidation, holding just above the 10 week moving average. The PPO shows a gentle pullback. If this could break the downtrend in momentum and start to turn higher, this will coincide with a breakout to new highs in the stock. That is a bullish combination; momentum turning up while above zero on the PPO, just as the price breaks out to fresh highs.
