Williams Companies, Inc. (The) (WMB) reached a significant support level, and could be a good pick for investors from a technical perspective. Recently, WMB broke through the 200-day moving average, which suggests a long-term bullish trend.

The 200-day simple moving average helps traders and analysts determine overall long-term market trends for stocks, commodities, indexes, and other financial instruments. The indicator moves higher or lower along with longer-term price moves, serving as a support or resistance level.
