The popular American furniture chain with more than 300 stores across the United States, Canada, Europe, Asia, and the Middle East, Ethan Allen Interiors Inc. (NYSE: ETH) seem to be getting ready for a price bump as per the latest charts. There are quite a few positive indications on the charts of ETH.
Bullish Move – Chart Indications
#1 Falling Wedge Breakout: As you can see from the daily chart, Ethan Allen Interiors was forming a falling wedge pattern during the past few months. This is marked as purple color lines. The stock has currently broken out of the falling wedge pattern after taking support at the bottom of the wedge. A falling wedge is a bullish pattern and a breakout from it implies that the stock may move higher in the short term.
