The well-known American fashion designer and manufacturer of popular brands like Fossil, Relic, Abacus, Michele Watch, Skagen Denmark, Misfit, WSI, and Zodiac Watches, Fossil Group Inc. (NASDAQ: FOSL) seems to be getting ready for a price bump as per the latest charts.
Bullish Move – Chart Indications

The stock is currently near the top of the falling wedge pattern. A falling wedge is a bullish pattern and a breakout from it implies that the stock may move higher in the short term.
#2 MACD above Signal Line: In the daily chart, the MACD line (light blue color) is currently above the MACD signal line (orange color) which is typically considered as a potential buy signal.[hana-code-insert name=’adsense-article’ /] #3 Fibonacci Support: Usually, after an up-move, stocks retraces to any of the key Fibonacci levels before surging back again.
Fossil Inc. has currently taken support at 50% Fibonacci support level as seen in the daily chart.
