Allegheny Technologies

(ATI) - Get Report

has been stair-stepping higher, but I wanted to look at a couple of different indicators to analyze the trend.

The moving average convergence/divergence (MACD) is a very useful indicator that measures both trend and momentum. With the indicator well above the midline and moving steadily higher, the uptrend in ATI is healthy with solid momentum. No problem there.

The on-balance volume indicator is fairly flattish ... but still moving higher. So, I'd just keep a stop underneath the breakout level at $110 and keep raising it as ATI moves higher.
