Trend

Given the current horizontal trend you can expect Arthur J Gallagher & Co with 90% probability to be traded between $61.91 and $66.59 at the end of this period with 90% probability. A break of a horizontal trend is often followed by a large increase in the volume, and stocks seldom manage to go directly from the bottom of a trend up to the roof. Stocks turning up in the middle of a horizontal trend are therefore considered to be potential runners.
