What the Charts Say

Bullish on Texas Industries Add to ...

Texas Industries Inc. declined from $80.35 to $12.58 (A-B), had a recovery rally to $48.72 (C) and then settled in a wide horizontal trading range mostly between $27.50 and $47 (dashed lines). Price action over the past six months has been above the rising 40-week moving average (40wMA). The recent rise above $50 confirmed the breakout and the start of a new major up-leg. Only a decline below $40-$41 would be negative.
