Uber is trading above the moving averages of 10 and 21 weeks with today's gain.

Although this is a positive development, the stock is trading in a critical area. Thats the $28.50 area and downtrend resistance (blue line).

The latter is a bit arbitrary and, in my opinion, does not have as much impact as the $28.50 zone. Note how this level was significant support in Q2 and Q3 of 2020 as well as in Q1 2022 before it failed in May.

If Uber stocks can reclaim this level and remain above it, it opens the way to the $31 level. There, it finds the 38.2% retracement and the 10-month moving average. If it can eventually push through that, $35 might be the next.

The stock has found its 50-week moving average and a 50% retracement there.

If Uber's stock cannot be pushed higher and instead is rejected, what happens? The $25 level and the 10-week moving average are in play.

In this situation, the Bulls will want to see this zone act as a support because a $20 pullback might put the bulls back in the game.

Above $28.50 is acceptable, but traders should remain on their toes when it comes to this measure.
