We’ve acquired a textbook uptrend hitting the highest of the longer-term watchlist, this time in Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) for all of our CFD and fairness dealer associates on the market. On the weekly chart above, we will see JNJ has been grinding larger over the previous two years, dipping to $109 in the course of the 2020 pandemic lows earlier than benefitting from the large liquidity pump from central banks that’s despatched all asset costs larger since then.
