Bank Of America (BAC) set its 52-week intraday high at $43.49 on June 3. The stock is up 31.2% year-to-date and is nearly in correction territory, 8.6% below this high. Longer-term this banking giant is 121.5% above its March 23, 2020 low of $17.95.

BAC has successfully implemented an entry-level checking account program called Advantage SafeBalance. This program has more than three million clients, up from .1 million a year ago. This too-big-to fail bank is bullish on the U.S. economy.

If you are bullish on BAC, buy versus its 50-day simple moving average at $40.00. If, not, buy weakness to the 200-day simple moving average at $37.41. I show semiannual and annual pivots at $38.65 and $37.81. Beware that a close on Friday below its five-week modified moving average at $40.50 will downgrade its weekly chart to negative.
