WMT Bottom Facing All-Time High and Trade Wars

WMT has been in a bottoming formation most of this year. The big gap up was HFTs taking advantage of those who trade on earnings news. Notice how quickly profit-taking follows. The all-time high is strong resistance.

Walmart is one company that is stating it will face revenue and earnings problems due to the Trade Wars and new Tariffs on the Chinese goods it imports. Since this is a discount retail store, the tariffs will eventually force the company to either find another country to import goods from or raise the cost of its imported goods, which is a far more likely scenario. That means US consumers who buy products from Walmart will start to see an increase in the cost of any products or goods imported from China. This could take effect as early as this holiday season. WMT may try to delay some cost increases until next year, but the increase in import costs will be passed onto consumers at some point.
