Intel (INTC) shares jumped more than 6% to a two-month high on Monday as analysts at Melius Research said the chipmaker stands to benefit from growing interest in artificial intelligence (AI) personal computers and other hardware trends related to the technology. The stock was the biggest gainer on the Nasdaq 100 and Dow Jones Industrial Average on Monday.

Below, we take a closer look at Intel’s chart and use technical analysis to point out key levels to watch out for in upcoming trading sessions.

Breakout From Narrow Trading Range

Despite the 50-day moving average (MA) crossing below the 200-day MA to form an ominous death cross in early May, Intel shares have traded within a narrow range with several volume spikes since that time.

On Monday, the chipmaker’s stock gapped above the trading range’s top trendline on the highest share turnover since June 21, indicating bullish conviction behind the breakout. Moreover, the relative strength index (RSI) has moved in overbought territory above the 70 thresholds, confirming strong price momentum.

Monitor These Chart Levels Amid Further Strength

Amid a continued move higher, investors should monitor these four key levels where the shares may encounter overhead resistance.

The first area to watch sits around $35.50, an area on the chart connecting prices near a minor countertrend retracement during the stock’s sharp downtrading move in April.

If the stock breaks through this level, it may move up to retest a key horizontal line near $39 that links the prominent September 2023 swing high with the 200-day MA.

A close above this region could see the shares climb to around $42, where they would likely face sellers near a trendline connecting four price troughs between December 2023 and March this year.

Finally, a longer-term rally may see the price revisit $45.50 near a horizontal line that connects several price peaks over a five-month period from November to April.

Short-Term Overbought Conditions

While the RSI’s overbought reading confirms strong price momentum, it also increases the chances of a short-term retracement or gap fill.

During temporary pullbacks, investors should keep an eye on the prior trading range’s top trendline around $32, which has now likely flipped from an area of resistance into support.
