Charles Schwab Corporation (NYSE:SCHW) was last seen up 0.4% to trade at $73.66, adding to its 16.5% quarter-to-date lead. The security remains down 12.5% in 2022, however, as it struggles with a ceiling at the $75 area, which emerged after the stock's August rally lost steam at the $77 region. It looks like shares may soon topple this area of resistance, though, as SCHW just pulled back to a trendline with historically bullish implications.
According to Schaeffer's Senior Quantitative Analyst Rocky White's latest study, Charles Schwab stock is within one standard deviation of its 40-day moving average. The equity has seen seven similar signals in the last three years, and was higher one month later 71% of the time, averaging an 8.1% gain. A move of similar magnitude would place SCHW above the $79 level for the first time since April.
