To review Newell's stock, please take a look at the 1-year chart of NWL (Newell Rubbermaid, Inc.) below with my added notations:
After rallying higher from October until February, NWL has been chopping up an down within a long Rectangle over the last (5) months. A Rectangle pattern forms when a stock gets stuck bouncing between a horizontal support and resistance. A minimum of (2) successful tests of the support and (2) successful tests of the resistance will give you the pattern. For NWL, the Rectangle pattern has formed a $19 resistance (red) and a $17 support area (navy).
The Tale of the Tape: NWL has formed a common Rectangle pattern. The possible long positions on NWL would be either on a pullback to $17, or on a breakout above $19. The ideal short opportunity would be on a break below $17.
