It was anything but a high-conviction win, but stocks managed to hold onto a piece of Monday's gain. The S&P 500 ended the day up 0.09%, just barely able to hang on to its place above a pivotal support level.Source: Allan Ajifo via Wikimedia (Modified)Facebook (NASDAQ:FB) did a great deal of the heavy lifting, rallying more than 4% on the heels of news that it was planning to launch its own cryptocurrency. Chesapeake Energy (NYSE:CHK) wasn't far behind though, gaining more than 3% thanks to rebounding natural gas prices, which hit multi-month lows just a few days back. A multi-week selloff from CHK set the stage rather nicely though.Advanced Micro Devices (NASDAQ:AMD) led the losers, off almost 4% after Goldman Sachs posted some broadly bearish thoughts on software names. AMD was guilty by indirect association though, and is teetering on its worst losing streak in eight months.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * The 10 Best Index Funds to Buy and Hold Headed into Tuesday's trading action though, it's the stock charts of McKesson (NYSE:MCK), Gilead Sciences (NASDAQ:GILD) and Dish Network (NASDAQ:DISH) that are worth the closest looks. Here's why, and what's likely to happen next. Dish Network (DISH)On Tuesday of last week we pointed out Dish Network was putting the finishing touches on a move above a significant technical ceiling. But, the nature of the effort was less than convincing. It was going to require a confirmation of sorts that DISH shares were ready to remain above that resistance.We moved toward that goal over the course of last week, but yesterday we effectively sealed the deal. The shape and placement of Monday's bar says the bulls mean business. Now that the heavy lifting is done the stock has a lot of room to continue recovering its 2017 and 2018 losses. Click to Enlarge * The ceiling in question is right around $36.90, plotted in yellow on both stock charts. That was a resistance level in late May, but as the weekly chart shows, it was a huge problem in mid-2018. * Monday's bar is ideal. A decent open only had to kiss the former technical ceiling to drive the stock to its highest close in over a year. * Bolstering the bullish argument is how much volume took shape behind yesterday's gain. But, this also wasn't the first time we've seen a volume surge behind major forward progress. The bulls are starting to form, en masse. * The weekly chart puts it all in perspective. There's not another major technical ceiling in sight until the $66.50 area, marked in blue. McKesson (MCK)A little over a week ago McKesson was featured as a budding breakout candidate. It has crossed back above all of its key moving average lines, and though a rather important technical ceiling remained above, the momentum was encouraging.That resistance line ended up being tested as expected, although MCK shares failed to clear it. They're still in the hunt for that breakout move though, and now they're even closer to starting it with an ideal bull signal. * 7 Top-Rated Biotech Stocks to Invest In Today Click to Enlarge * The resistance level to watch is the line that traces all the major peaks going back to October, including last week's. It's plotted in yellow on both stock charts. * It's evident on both charts, but the weekly chart puts the current converging wedge pattern in perspective. This is one of the best chances we've seen of reversing a multi-year selloff. * Although the last one didn't offer much help, the purple 50-day moving average line is about to cross above the white 200-day line. That will draw a crowd of bulls no matter what, but especially if McKesson can break above its falling resistance line. Gilead Sciences (GILD)Take it with a grain of salt, as we've seen it before, to no avail. But, Gilead Sciences shares are knocking on the door of a key break above a well-established resistance line. Although there's another major ceiling beyond that one that could disrupt the chart that's admittedly easy to disrupt, there's also a chance that the bears have inflicted enough damage and that the company itself has finally addressed the drug-cost issues that have proven so problematic for the stock's price. * Like McKesson, Gilead shares have been range-bound for several weeks after a two-year spell. It's one reasonably compelling way to end weakness and kick off some progress. * Just above the resistance currently at $67.15 is the 200-day moving average line at $68.14, plotted in white on both stock charts. That line is still a make-or-break level. The key will be making that move at a sustainable pace. * The weekly chart not only serves as a reminder that huge swings in both directions are possible, but that last year's peak around $79 could be where any breakout move finally comes to a close.As of this writing, James Brumley did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.

That's four big daily wins in a row for stocks, with the S&P 500's gain of 1.05% on Friday. It's still too soon to call it the beginning of a recovery move; it's almost too much, too fast. But, it buys time for the bulls to regroup.Source: Allan Ajifo via Wikimedia (Modified)Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) carried more than its fair share of the weight, rallying 2.8% to cross back above the $1 trillion market cap mark. Weighing the market down was the 1.26% tumble from Bank of America (NYSE:BAC), setting the tone that adversely impacted most other banking names. Concerns of interest rate cuts rattled bank investors, as lower interest rates threaten bank profits. * 7 A-Rated Stocks to Buy Under $10 Neither are especially compelling trading prospects headed into this week's trading action though. Rather, take a look at stock charts of McKesson (NYSE:MCK), Coca-Cola (NYSE:KO) and CenterPoint Energy (NYSE:CNP). Here's why, and what needs to happen next.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips CenterPoint Energy (CNP)When we last looked at CenterPoint Energy back on May 15, it had just pushed up and off of its 200-day moving average line, only to run into resistance again. While it could have gone either way at the time, the bears actually had the edge.Since then, the 200-day line failed to keep the stock propped up. Sure, CNP snapped back in early June to cross back above the very same 200-day moving average line. With the shape and placement of Friday's bar, however, it appears CenterPoint shares are back en route to even lower lows. Click to Enlarge * The red flag is Friday's engulfing pattern, meaning the high open and low close completely engulfed Thursday's low/high range. Such a sweeping change of heart is telling. * Simultaneously, the big bearish swing also dragged CNP back below the pivotal 200-day line, plotted in white on both stock charts. * If the selling gets traction, the next likely landing spot is just under $27, where CNP found support for the better part of last year. Coca-Cola (KO)With nothing more than a quick glance, Coca-Cola looks enticing. Shares have been rallying quite well since February's low, seemingly unstoppable. The fact that a long-term resistance line, plotted in white on the weekly chart, was hurdled last week only bolsters the bullish argument.A closer, more thorough look at the weekly chart, however, reveals the advance just bumped into another rather well-established ceiling. Meanwhile, the shape of Friday's bar also suggests we're ready to pivot back into a pullback. * 10 Stocks to Buy That Could Be Takeover Targets Click to Enlarge * Friday's high aligns with the prior two major peaks from KO stock, plotted in red on the weekly chart that's also on the verge of an overbought RSI indicator. * In the daily timeframe, the open and close both near the low of a relatively tall bar, which also suggests a move from a net-buying to a net-selling environment. * While the stage is set, the move won't be complete until we get a confirmation in the form of a lower close. McKesson (MCK)Finally, given its multi-year history, doubting McKesson is on the mend now wouldn't be a tough conclusion to make. And, that may well be the case here despite a couple of bullish curiosities. Nevertheless, those curiosities are worth pointing out, as a recovery effort from here could lead into a major rally effort. Click to Enlarge * Most noteworthy is also the least noticed … not only are we now seeing a bullish MACD convergence, the most recent MACD crossover took place above the prior one. It points to a longer-term advance that needs multiple efforts to get going. * At the same time, notice on the daily chart that all the key moving average lines are about to converge after last year's divergence. The big clue to watch for is the purple 50-day average crossing above the white 200-day line. That's a "golden cross" that suggests more bullishness ahead. * The ultimate ceiling, however, is currently at $135. That's the line that connects all the major peaks since September, marked in yellow on both stock charts.As of this writing, James Brumley did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.
