Chartology: McDonald’s (MCD) Clinging to Trend Line

Stock Charts2012 has been a rough year for McDonalds (MCD) stock. Further, when one considers and compares performance metrics to the overall market YTD, its been brutal.

Over the past two weeks MCD did something it has not done since 2009 – it breached its 3 year trend line. Now, truth be told, a brief breach and recovery (i.e. a shakeout of weak hands) happens. But MCD is two weeks into the breach and needs to recover soon to avoid further technical damage. Either way, 85 will likely need to hold for a rally attempt to take place.
