Besides the Technical Rating, ChartMill assigns a Setup Rating to every stock to determine the degree of consolidation. This rating, ranging from 0 to 10, is updated daily and evaluates various short-term technical indicators. NASDAQ:FAST currently holds a 8 as its setup rating, suggesting a particular level of consolidation in the stock.
Besides having an excellent technical rating, FAST also presents a decent setup pattern. We see reduced volatility while prices have been consolidating in the most recent period. There is a resistance zone just above the current price starting at 59.67. Right above this resistance zone may be a good entry point. There is a support zone below the current price at 57.84, a Stop Loss order could be placed below this zone. Another positive sign is the recent Pocket Pivot signal.
One way to play this would be to wait for the actual breakout to happen and buy when the stock breaks out above the current consolidation zone. A possible place for a stop loss would be below this zone.
