Trading Idea: Momentum Building in Altria

New York, October 5th (TradersHuddle.com) - Shares of Altria Group, Inc. (NYSE:MO) closed the trading session at $34.00 with its price action in a very tight range, given that calculated support is set at $32.72 and the calculated resistance is set at $34.54.

Altria Group, Inc. (NYSE:MO), its a holding company, parent of Philip Morris USA, John Middleton, and US Smokeless Tobacco Company. Altria, through its subsidiaries, engages in the manufacture and sale of cigarettes, and other tobacco products in the United States and internationally. It primarily offers cigarettes under the Marlboro, Virginia Slims, and Parliament brands; smokeless tobacco products under the Copenhagen, Skoal, Red Seal, and Husky brands; and machine-made large cigars and pipe tobacco.

Altria's stock price action indicates that both sellers and buyers are materializing very close to each other. This signals an area where momentum is building, since the stock can resolve by breaking out of the developing tight range.

Traders wanting to establish a position should pay close attention to Altria's price action, as any movement outside its predefined range of $32.72 and $34.54 could grasp the attention of momentum buyers that look for a big movement in the price of the stock. Traders need to be aware that tight range resolution works both ways, hence, a move below support could spark above the average selling. A tiered approach could be the best way to start a position; enter into it while the stock is in the tight range, and then add to this position as it breaks and closes above resistance.
