Visa stock (NYSE:V) is one of my favorite stocks to watch from both the investment side and the macroeconomic trend of the US. Much of the US economy is based on consumer spending, and Visa is a direct beneficiary of the spending. As the economy grows, so does Visa. It acts as a sort of lagging indicator. Visa stock Investors need to be careful to watch for slowdowns in the economy.

Visa Stock Support and resistance
The company’s shares are dominated by “bullish” trends. At the moment, the #V quotes are testing the key extremes. The emitter is consolidating near the resistance level of 187.00. 182.00 is the nearest support level. The tool has the potential for further growth.

Investors are waiting for details on the first phase of the US-China trade agreement and are also monitoring the publication of data on industrial production and the labor market. There is a problem with the volume of agricultural products that China will have to buy. US President Donald Trump says purchases will amount to 50 billion dollars, while PRC representatives wander by specific figures. American experts are skeptical of Trump’s statements, noting that it will be impossible to increase the volume of purchases rapidly. Furthermore, the PRC does not need so many agricultural products, and it will only be possible to guarantee the declared figures if the Chinese authorities start accumulating them.
During the day, investors are waiting for the publication of US statistics, which could be ambiguous. The volume of industrial production can grow by 0.8% after a decline of 0.8% a month earlier. The indicator of houses under construction can increase from 1,344 to 1,345 million units, and the number of building permits issued, on the contrary, can decrease from 1,461 to 1,410 million.
