Ominous Death Cross Forms On Toyota Motor’s Chart By Benzinga

© Reuters. Ominous Death Cross Forms On Toyota Motor’s Chart

If history is any guide, there may be trouble ahead for shares of Toyota Motor (NYSE:TM). A so-called “death cross” has formed on its chart and, not surprisingly, this could be bearish for the stock.

What To Know: Many traders use moving average crossover systems to make their decisions.

When a shorter-term average price crosses above a longer-term average price, it could mean the stock is trending higher. If the short-term average price crosses below the long-term average price, it means the trend is lower.

Why It’s Important: The 50-day and the 200-day simple moving averages are commonly used.

The death cross occurs when the 50-day moves below the 200-day. This could mean the long-term trend is changing.

That just happened with Toyota Motor, which is trading around $171.25 at publication time.

Remember: Seasoned investors don’t blindly trade Death Crosses.

But thanks to recently announced changes to the province’s Motor Vehicle Act, one local business owner says you could soon see the portable, battery-powered rides everywhere.

Max Rastelli, owner of HFX e-Scooters and Segway Nova Scotia, said he believes large “micromobility” companies have been holding off coming to Halifax until now. 

“Perhaps next year or some point in the future, I would expect to see more operators in the city and competition in the city,” said Rastelli, adding there could be “thousands of scooters on the streets” if big-name operators were to set up shop in Halifax.
