Raytheon (RTN) Breaks A Continuation Wedge

 | 

Raytheon (RTN) and Northrop Grumman (NOC) both have SCTR's above 75 and are looking strong in the face of many charts trying to get back above their 200 DMA's. I like Raytheon a little bit more today because of the conditions of the chart. Raytheon has been in a multi year uptrend and pulled back in Relative Strength (purple) for the last 6 weeks. This break in the trend is important. I like the re-acceleration of the SCTR back above 75. In terms of raw price action, it just keeps testing this $126.50 to $128.50 range.  This looks like it probably has the potential to pop right out the topside here.


I like the strong volume on the break outside the wedge yesterday and the MACD is turning up from a neutral level which might also suggest this is ready to run. A stop level at $120 would suggest this needs more time to consolidate.

I will be doing The Canadian Technician Webinar  20160405, (Tuesday,April 5th, 2016 which is today at time of writing!) - with a continuation on the Japanese Yen, the Nikkei, the oil and gold markets, the Canadian sectors and a few other gems. Feel free to join me at no cost by following this link to register! 

I will not be doing a Commodities Countdown Webinar on Thursday April 7th, 2016 but will be back the following week! Hopefully, I'll have some highlights from the MTA Symposium in NYC as well.

Good trading,
