    If you believe the banks look weak and that higher interest rates will put downward pressure on their stock price, then WBC is worth a look.

    Looking at the MACD we've had three consecutive lower highs and three consecutive lower lows in the last 7 months. Today’s cross would make it 4 consecutive lower highs. The last two peak crosses saw moves of about $1.50 falls (high to low) or about 10%.

    The interesting thing here is that price action looks allot like the right shoulder of a head and shoulders pattern. If that’s the case, then it could fall quite rapidly. First target is strong support about $1 lower from the current price. Stop should be just above recent high at $16.68 therefore initial reward to risk ratio is 3 to 1. If support fails then yee haa.

    The only problem I see is that OBV has been trending up in he last 7 months even though the price has been drifting sideways. This suggests underlying strength in the long term.

    Probability does not prevent the possible from happening.

    Trade smart.
