This Stock Looks Ready to Break Out

The American worldwide health services organization based in suburban Bloomfield, Connecticut and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Cigna Corp (NYSE: CI) shows signs of an upcoming price surge according to its latest charts.

Bullish Indications

#1 Symmetrical Triangle Pattern Breakout: As you can see from the daily chart, CI had recently formed a symmetrical triangle pattern. This pattern is shown as purple lines. A symmetrical triangle pattern represents a period of consolidation before the price breaks out. This is typically formed when there is indecision in the price movements and uncertainty among the buyers and sellers. Once a breakout from the upper line occurs, it usually signifies the start of a new bullish trend. Currently, the stock has broken out of the symmetrical triangle pattern, indicating bullishness.
