Take a look at the 1-year chart of National (NYSE: NNN) below with my added notations:
Over the several months NNN has been trending consistently higher,
while also forming a nice trend line of support (green). Always remember
that any (2) points can start a trend line, but it’s the 3rd test and
beyond that confirm its relevance. As you can see, the market deems
NNN’s trendline to be important. A pullback to that line will provide
trading opportunities, one way or another.
The Tale of the Tape: NNN has a trend line support
to monitor. A long position could be entered on a pullback to the
trendline, with a stop placed below the level of entry. A short position
could be entered if NNN were to break below its trendline.
