(NYSE:IBM) closed the trading day at $192.51, near its 50 day and 200 day moving averages set at $200.49 and $189.79 respectively. IBM's price action placed the stock above the 200 day moving average but below its 50 day moving average, a setup that signals a possible break out.

IBM seems to be setting up for a tight range between the 200 day moving average as support and the 50 day moving average serving as resistance.
A tiered approach, appears to be the best strategy to maximize possible movements in the stock, as traders could establish a small position in IBM and wait for the stock to break out above its 50 day moving average at $200.49. Then they could add to the position as momentum builds with the breakout. On the flip side, if support being referenced at the 200 day moving average set at $189.79 breaks, it could signal further downside pressure for IBM.
