Ford (F) Could Take Advantage of Japan Auto Weakness

With Toyota Motor Corporation (TM) under pressure with some other Japanese auto companies, common sense tells me to look at Ford Motor Company (F). The stock has pulled in from $19ish and has been mired in a month and a half long downtrend since its earnings report on January 28th.

I see a small descending channel on the daily chart that I think presents an outstanding risk-reward situation for the active trader. I think you could look to buy around $14.50 and if it holds above, we can get quick cash flow move to $15ish before the ultimate gap fill back to $15.70. Stops would be at $14.20.
