In my opinion, this stock has a very good risk/reward ratio and investors in General Motors stand to gain a lot more for taking a comparatively smaller risk. On this chart, I marked current resistance and support levels. The current supports levels are $30 and $26, $34 and $38 represent the current resistance levels.
If the price jumps above $34 it would be a “BUY” signal and we have the open way to $36. Rising above $38 supports the continuation of the bullish trend and the next price target could be located around $40.
