  • AMD is trading in an uptrend but on Monday, the stock stalled near the $130 mark, which also acted as resistance on May 30.
  • The chip maker printed a reversal candlestick Monday, but a bullish reaction to the company's AI event could negate the signal.

The AMD Chart: AMD started trading in a fairly consistent uptrend on May 4, making a series of higher highs and higher lows. The most recent high was formed at $130.79 on May 30 and the most recent low was printed at the $117.05 mark on June 8.

  • On Monday, AMD spiked up toward the $130 level but rejected the area and printed a doji candlestick. The candlestick suggests the local top may be in, and the stock could trade lower on Tuesday, however, the investor event could cause AMD to negate the candlestick and the stock could trade higher.
  • If AMD’s presentation is a “sell-the-news" event, the double-top pattern the stock formed near the $130 mark on May 30 and Monday is likely to play out. If that happens, a longer-term retracement could be in the cards.
  • AMD has resistance above at $130.60 and $138.52 and support below at $122.49 and $118.13.
