Knowing the overview of M&T Bank, shall we proceed to have a look at its chart?

 

2. Position Trading (Daily)

Looking at the chart above, you’ll see that the price of M&T Bank has been stuck in a range since Jan 2022. Its price has yet to be able to break out of the range for 7 months.

This presents a slightly tricky situation as the price of M&T Bank could continue to be stuck in this range despite the appearance of the green arrow and the Trend Impulse Factor’s dark green bar.

Does this mean that you stay out of M&T Bank completely?

This depends on your risk appetite.

You could:

  1. Go long on M&T Bank’s shares with a reduced position size and wait for its price to break out and for the indicators to agree with each other to enter your remaining position size; OR
  2. Wait for its price to break out and for the indicators to appear together to enter your intended position size

Shall we turn out attention to its chart to find out if there’s any position trading opportunity?

 

2. Position Trading (Daily)

From the look of Paramount Global’s chart above, you can tell that it’s in a downtrend.

In fact, it hasn’t been able to recover from the crash brought about by COVID-19 in Mar 2021.

Thus, it’s natural to be on the lookout for a short-selling position trading opportunity.

You can see a red arrow which symbolizes the likely direction of prices in the coming days and weeks.

Did you notice that the bar of the Trend Impulse Indicator is in dark green?

This shows that the momentum of this downtrend is strong.

And we have an agreement by both indicators! This makes a fabulous short-selling position trade.

 

Conclusion

M&T Bank could be ready for a position trade if its price can break out of its range. When that happens, you’ll also want to watch for an agreement of both indicators – the green arrow and Trend Impulse Factor.

Paramount Global is still reeling from the shock brought about by COVID-19. Its share price hasn’t been able to find its footing, sliding since Mar 2021.

A look at its chart brings a short-selling trading opportunity though!
