Reverse Gear

Mid Session

PACCAR Truck Builder In Reverse

PACCAR’s in reverse in more ways than one.

From a market standpoint, this morning’s action puts PCAR at the danger point.

If today’s action or subsequent action can’t make a new daily high, then we’re in a potential up-thrust (reversal) condition.

The daily chart shows our well documented ‘spring to up-thrust’ empirically observed repeating pattern.

Keep your eye on Friday’s high (87.46). That’s the risk (not advice, not a recommendation).

It should be noted, there’s also potential to up-thrust around the 90.50, area; the location of a 50% retrace (not shown).

Last Friday’s high occurred at the 38%, retrace level.

Looking at it from a long term Quarterly perspective, gives us the chart below:

PCAR’s been in a rising (terminating) wedge for years. Now, it looks like the ‘throw-over’ is nearing completion.

What Does It Mean?

Why focus on PACCAR?

Because it’s the builder of trucks that are used to complete the supply chain; from container shipping dock to store-front or distribution facility.

If we do get a solid reversal back into the rising wedge, it signals a long term decline.

As of this post, PCAR is holding steady around 86.50.

Penetration of today’s low (85.45) signals trouble and potential confirmation of the up-thrust.
