Last, but not least, is Limited Brands (LTD), the specialty retail name behind Victoria's Secret, Bath & Body Works, and La Senza, among others. Limited Brands hasn't looked particularly compelling for the last couple of months -- while shares were in an uptrend from the start of the summer, that uptrend topped out in September and moved into a well defined, substantial downtrend.
But there's still an upside trade to this stock.
That's because yesterday LTD broke out above its downtrending resistance level, sparking a signal that the decline could be coming to an end in this stock. That signal is still preliminary at this point -- with only part of yesterday's session above resistance, we'll want to see shares close above that level again today before it makes sense to actually put money on a trade here.Here again, momentum adds some extra confidence to what's going on in LTD -- the downtrend in RSI broke at the same time that price did. Still, price is king, so until it gets confirmed in today's session, I'd recommend sitting on the sidelines.
