TheStreet'sChris Versace and Bob Lang of Trifecta Stocks have identified Deere as the "Chart of the Day." Here is what Versace and Lang had to say about the company:

After that monstrous move in August, Deere had to settle down a bit and get some run back, and after a steep dive a month later we are back to the scene of the big rise.

The stock looks poised for a move higher after a brief consolidation at highs in the mid $80s. The momentum is back in this name for sure, the relative strength truly impressive since August.

The moving average convergence divergence (MACD) has corrected some here, but we see the support at the 20-day moving average (dotted line), a clue where this stock could make a move.

Volume levels are swelling of late; this looks like a breakout is imminent past $88.
