The Ford chart: Ford began trading in a downtrend on August 16, when the stock attempted to regain the 200-day simple moving average (SMA) on the daily chart, but failed.

The most recent high low in the trend was formed on August 26 at $16.09 and the most recent confirmed low low was printed at $14.91 on August 12.

  • Thursday’s candlestick may suggest a rebound will occur on Friday, but the more likely scenario is that the stock will cap below the $16 mark. However, if the stock is able to charge above this level, or rebound and retrace only to reach a low above $14.78, the downtrend will be reversed.
  • The bulls want to see Ford regain the eight-day exponential moving average (EMA) as support, which will prevent the eight-day EMA from breaking below the bearish 21-day. If Ford continues to decline, the 50-day SMA will be an important area to hold above.
  • Ford has upper resistance at $15.51 and $16.45 and lower support at $14.34 and $12.79.
