Much of the trepidation revolves around whether the economy will be reopened soon. We can only hope for a swift flattening of the “coronavirus curve” so that life can return to something resembling normalcy.

A handful of stocks were pushed deep into the red on Monday. Are these buying opportunities?

Let’s dive into Tuesday’s big stock charts, all of which might or might not present a chance to buy famous names on the cheap.

Caterpillar (CAT)

A famous construction-sector name in the Dow Jones Industrial AverageCaterpillar (NYSE:CAT) stock printed a red candlestick at the start of the week. Will it play catch-up in the days ahead?

  • If anybody was wondering whether the top of that falling wedge would continue to provide resistance, Monday gave you the answer. Ouch!
  • Monday’s candlestick was not only a big gap down, but also a large red marubozu candle. That means it went down pretty much all day without stopping until the market closed.
  • From a technical standpoint, the first of our big stock charts looks like it just went up too fast for its own good. Traders should revisit this stock at the $90 support level.

Royal Caribbean Cruises (RCL)

It’s not necessarily easy to trade a quick mover like Royal Caribbean Cruises (NYSE:RCL). Monday’s price drop was proof of this. As the second of our big stock charts shows, however, sometimes stocks that go down fast can recover just as quickly.

  • It looks like the double-bottom could end up being a triple-bottom. If you’re ready to bet on that, then the $25 support level is worth keeping an eye on for a long position.
  • Don’t let the size of Monday’s candlestick fool you. It was a monster 17% single-day move, and not in the bulls’ favor.
  • On the other hand, the upside potential is huge here. Don’t get greedy, though, as $60 would be a perfectly reasonable place to take profits.

Ford (F)

Ford (NYSE:F) stock represents an inter-generational company that has survived major challenges. Will the stock and the company demonstrate the resiliency of the American automotive market?

  • “Ford at four” is my mantra now, meaning that $4 is a great price for this stock. The double-bottom chart pattern reflects this.
  • The lower wick on Monday’s candlestick indicates that at least it didn’t “close on the lows.” That would have been a bearish sign, but thankfully for the bulls, it was averted.
  • Longer-term, it makes sense to take profits at $8.50. That was the main support level for a while, but now it’s resistance.

As of this writing, David Moadel did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.
