Traders wanting to establish a position should pay close attention to U.S. Bancorp's price action, as any movement outside its predefined range of $30.96 and $32.59 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.
