Caterpillar Inc. (CAT) Stock: Shares Head Lower On Alleged Tax & Accounting Fraud

Looking at the daily chart above you will notice that $CAT has been under some selling pressure ever since its has been under investigation. There will be some support around $90, $89.40 and at the 200-day moving average, currently sitting at $86.84. Those have all been key pivot levels in the past on the daily chart. We should see some resistance at $92.50 and where the 50-day moving average is currently sitting at $95.11.

As you can see in the 5-minute chart above, shares had a strong downtrend day with decent sell-side volume before getting a light bounce at the end of day. I would remain cautious if you are trading the bounce as it could just be a relief rally before the next leg down.
