COLM is below the declining 50-day moving average line and below the cresting 200-day line. The On-Balance-Volume (OBV) line shows a rise from early January to July, followed by some weakness into August suggesting a pick up in aggressive selling. The Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) oscillator is now below the zero-line for a sell signal.

The weekly OBV line has been in a decline the past 12 months and is a serious bearish divergence and suggests that investors have been liquidating longs for a sustained period. The trend-following MACD oscillator shows a weak pattern with lower highs from 2018 to 2019, despite prices making higher highs. Another bearish divergence.
In this Point and Figure chart of COLM, below, we can see a nearby downside price target of $88.
Bottom line strategy: If COLM declined to $88 it would clearly break the May low and could precipitate further weakness to the $82 area. Reduce your long exposure.
