This score also ranges from 0 to 10 and is updated daily. The setup score evaluates various short term technical indicators. NYSE:WMB scores a 10 out of 10:
Besides having an excellent technical rating, WMB also presents a decent setup pattern. Prices have been consolidating lately. There is a resistance zone just above the current price starting at 33.88. Right above this resistance zone may be a good entry point. There is a support zone below the current price at 33.68, a Stop Loss order could be placed below this zone. We notice that large players showed an interest for WMB in the last couple of days, which is a good sign. Another positive sign is the recent Pocket Pivot signal.
For a potential trade one would typically wait until the stock breaks out of the consolidation zone to enter the stock and it could be sold again for a loss when it would fall back below the zone.
