Citigroup (NYSE:C) doesn’t have much to brag about from a long-term perspective as it remains 80% off its high back in 2006. Yet Citi can brag about the gains it achieved from its 2009 lows – it's up several hundred percent.
Below looks at Citi over the past 24 years, which is why I think a critically important resistance test is in play.
A few months ago, Citi faced a dual resistance test at (1), where enough buyers came forward and a breakout took place. Citi rallied nearly 20% in short order following the breakout at (1).
The rally over the past few months has Citi facing another resistance test at (2), which comes into play at $77. If it can find enough buyers and strength to take out this key resistance, it could attract a good deal of buyers as the price has waterfalled between $150 and $77. Is a reversal of this waterfall pattern about to take place? What Citi does at current levels will be highly important for it months from now.
