Trade idea: Allstate (ALL) Short

In the event of further upside in the market next week, watch ALL for a pullback at 29.50. The stock has been in a significant downtrend since early May and is trading below its 20, 50 and 200 moving averages.

The 29.50 level corresponds to a gap fill and is very near to a pivot low and a 50% fibonacci retrace. Should this level break to the upside, there will be strong secondary resistance at the 20 moving average and the 61.8% fibonacci retrace.

I will look to short ALL on a break of 29.50 with a stop above the 20 moving average.

ALL has strong resistance at the 29.50 level
