New York, August 3rd (TradersHuddle.com) - Shares of Visa Inc. (NYSE:V) ended the trading

session higher by $0.79 or 0.62% from its previous close. Visa's price action formed what is considered to be a bullish engulfing candle that could very well signal a continuation of trend or reversal of the ongoing weakness.

Visa Inc. (NYSE:V) is a retail electronic payments network operator. The company manages global financial services and offers global commerce through the transfer of value and information among financial institutions, merchants, consumers, businesses and government entities.

Visa's recent stock range was formed by a trough where calculated support was defined at $121.28 and by a peak that established the resistance level at $132.35. This range could be used by traders managing their positions.

Traders wanting to establish a position in Visa or traders that are already holding the stock can use the bullish engulfing pattern to their advantage. The pattern provides a defined risk, as it shows where the bears were able to push the stock down, before the bulls step in with a bid.

The bullish engulfing pattern is a leading indicator that provides an alert to the bulls that the trend will continue or that there is an immediate reversal to the short-term weakness seen on the stock. Below an Engulfing Bullish Candle Illustration:
