Merck Makes a Move $MRK


Merck is showing signs of life as it bounces off a breakout zone and the Stochastic Oscillator turns up. The overall trend is up because the stock hit a 52-week high in February and is above the rising 40-week moving average. After a breakout surge earlier this year, the stock fell back to the breakout zone with a classic throwback. The recent upturn in the Stochastic Oscillator suggests that the pullback is ending and the bigger uptrend is resuming. 

Thanks for tuning in and have a great day!
