What’s Next For Target?

Bulls want to see the stock bounce off the support level and push up toward resistance. Bulls then want to see the stock break above resistance and consolidate for a time for a possible bullish push higher.

Bears want to see the stock fall below the higher low trendline to possibly see a trend change. Below this trendline with a period of consolidation could see the start of a downward trend.
