Please take a look at the 1-year chart of LHO (Lasalle Hotel Properies) below with my added notations:
1-year chart of LHO (Lasalle Hotel Properies)
LHO has come down to a very important price of $32 based on two different levels of potential support. First, the $32 level itself (red) has simply been key to the stock on multiple occasions already. In addition, LHO is approaching a short-term, up-trending level of support (blue) and that trendline is also sitting at the $32 level.

The Tale of the Tape: LHO has a key area of support at $32. A long trade could be made at $32 with a stop placed below that level of entry. However, if the stock were to break below $32 traders might want to look to get short on the stock.
