Deere (DE) Has Trouble Breaking Higher Ground


On Thursday, Deere and Co. (DE) pushed to new highs. But the equipment could not hold the breakout and rolled over swiftly falling hard today.  Deere is sitting at a critical point on the chart. We can see the rising trend in the price action and this test of the previous high was an important one. After making it $0.03 above the previous high, the selling started. Deere gapped down this morning and looks to test the bottom trend line. If Deere holds and bounces it could be a great entry on the way to higher highs. If Deere fails to hold the trend line this will be considered a trend line failure and a double top failure. Watch the relative strength in purple at the top. If Deere breaks the horizontal line on the chart, I think we can expect more weakness. As long as it performs in line with the $SPX or better, there is a good chance of making and holding new highs.
