The American multinational tire manufacturing company that develops, manufactures, distributes, and sells tires and related products and services worldwide, Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co (NASDAQ: GT) seems to be getting ready for a price bump in the short-term as per the latest charts.

Recommended Trade (based on the charts)

Buy Levels: If you want to get in on this trade, the ideal buy level for GT is above the previous pivot high. This translates to a price of around $17.50.

TP: Our target prices are $23 and $28 in the next 3 to 6 months.

SL: To limit risk, place a stop loss at $13.80. Note that the stop loss is on a closing basis.

Our target potential upside is 31% to 60% in the next 3-6 months.

For a risk of $3.70, our target rewards are $5.50 and $10.50. This is a nearly 1:2 and 1:3 risk-reward trade.

In other words, this trade offers 2x to 3x more potential upside than downside.

Risks to Consider
The stock may reverse its overall trend if it breaks down from the channel breakout level with high volume. The sell-off of the stock could also be triggered in case of any negative news, overall weakness in the market, or any regulatory changes in the sector.

Happy Trading!
