American Express Co. (NYSE: AXP): This Blue-Chip Dow Stock Is Now A Bargain

Take a look at the 1-year chart of Maximus (NYSE: MMS) below with my added notations:
1-year chart of Maximus (NYSE: MMS) MMS has formed a clear support at $65 (green). In addition, the stock is declining against a short-term, down trending resistance level (red) over the last couple of weeks. These two levels combined have MMS stuck within a common chart pattern known as a descending triangle. Eventually, the stock will have to break one of those levels.

The Tale of the Tape: MMS has a down trending resistance and a $65 support level to watch. A long trade could be made on a breakout through the resistance or on a pullback to $65. A break below the $65 support would be an opportunity to enter a short trade.
