Stock to watch today


Barratt Developments is trading at a crucial level on the daily chart. The shares have consolidated in recent months as price has drifted towards an important 38.2% Fibonacci retracement level. We also have a horizontal support on offer at around 636p, as well as uptrend support that has been in place since the MArch 2020 lows. In recent weeks the share price has began to form a wedge pattern, a break to the upside would confirm the bullish bias and should send prices higher in the short to medium term.
