Foot Locker is a share that hints it is a possible buy.

Security:   FL
Position:   Accumulate

Finding a share where the daily, weekly and monthly charts suggests a possible buy — if not now, then in the very near future — is a share that should be placed on the Watch list. Foot Locker is a share that recently captured my attention.

Foot Locker Retail Inc. is a sportswear and footwear retailer operating in approximately 20 countries throughout the world. The company is offering free shipping on over 10,000 items to an order that is over $75. With more and more buyers looking to the internet to do their shopping, buying shares in Foot Locker could be a win-win over the long term.

The chart in Figure 1 is a monthly chart showing how the share price has risen from a low of $3.65in November 2008 to a high of $77.25 by September 2015, before correcting to its present share price of $55.69. The Stochastic indicator is at oversold levels and the RSI indicator is approaching RSI levels. The Vote line is however still showing a sell based on the JM Strategy and the RSI 12 Period strategy.

Figure 2. Weekly chart.

The weekly chart in Figure 2 shows the stochastic oscillator at oversold levels and turning upwards. When it breaks above the 20 horizontal line it will suggest a buy. The RSI indicator is also at oversold levels and turning up. A move above the 30 levels would suggest a buy. Do note that the share price is close to the lower band land and that a bullish engulfing day candlestick buy signal has been given. The Vote line is still suggesting a negative trend based on the RSI 12 Period strategy below the Vote line.

Figure 3. Daily chart.

The Daily chart in Figure 3 shows both the RSI and stochastic indicators have given buy signals as has the Vote line based on the RSI 12 period strategy. The share price has also bounced off the lower band also suggesting a buy.
The daily chart has given a buy signal, suggesting that traders could buy the stock at the current price and sell the stock when the stochastic and RSI indicators are overbought. Investors, however, could wait for both the monthly and weekly charts to move into buy mode, and then buy the share when the daily chart suggests a buy. This is a share that is definitely on my watch list.
