Published on Tuesday, 11 December 2012 06:40 Written by TradersHuddle Wire
New York, December 11th (TradersHuddle.com) - Shares of Baxter International, Inc. (NYSE:BAX) closed the trading session at $65.49 with its price action in a very tight range, given that calculated support is set at $65.20 and the calculated resistance is set at $68.91.
Baxter International Inc. (NYSE:BAX) develops, manufactures, and markets products and technologies related to hemophilia, immune disorders, infectious diseases, kidney disease, trauma and other chronic medical conditions. The healthcare products are used by hospitals, kidney dialysis centers, nursing homes, rehabilitation centers, doctors' offices, and research laboratories.
Baxter'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 Baxter's price action, as any movement outside its predefined range of $65.20 and $68.91 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.
