Best Buy''s stock has good news and bad news, the second being that the shares have already been reduced in half.

On the downside, there''s a clear level to watch, which is between $68 and $70.

While it''s still early in the week, we''ve had several back-to-back weeks with a low approaching $69.

This area is where the 161.8% downside extension comes into play from the most recent range, and where the 78.6% retracement comes into play from the November high to the March 2020 covid lows.

If thats too much technical jargon, then it''s only to say that the $58 to $60 area is significant. As long as the stock of Best Buy continues to close above it, aggressive purchasers may consider a difficult time in this area.

If the area fails as support, there is no indication where it might fall to. Longer term, I think we might exclude $50 as a potential landing spot if enough negative headwinds continue to work against it.

Keep an eye on this weeks high near $76. If we bounce, that is the first significant area to watch. Over $77.50 and $85 may be in play, along with the 10-week moving average.
