Technical Analysis

Procter and Gamble

$147 has been capping this stock since 2020. Recently, this key resistance level was crossed by a confident uptrend reaching $160.

In the last several days, the stock has cooled off, going below $160. However, we don’t expect it to lose bullish momentum and believe it will be going up.

With all the volatility, this index appears to be steadily moving up towards 7,400.

The stock is slowly drifting downwards in a channel. Its nearest objective may be at the support level of $160.
