There’s an interesting situation on the Ford weekly chart. We can notice the basic case of retracement. The key level is $10.50 as the price has failed to cross it many times when this level was both support and resistance. Retracement to a key level creates the optimal situation to enter the market. In the chart below you can notice that the price has pulled back to the key level after it closed above it. Since the stock is moving in an uptrend, this pullback should be a natural sell-off ahead of the further rally upwards. The move above the high of January 17 at $12.00 will push the price up to the record high of $13.50 unseen since 2018. Support levels are $8.75 and $7.50.
