GM Versus Ford - Market Analysis for May 18th, 2011

I am on the sidelines on Ford (F), preferring to be long the pattern that has been carved out by General Motors (GM) during the past three weeks. For F to get any upside traction, it must climb above its May declining rally tops line, now at 15.22.

After holding support around 31.00-30.85 for the past week, GM has turned up from yesterday's most recent swoon to test key near-term resistance at 31.55/60, which if hurdled should trigger upside follow-through towards 32.50/60 on the way to confront its Mar-May resistance plateau at 33.00-33.50.
