This Stock Could Make an Upmove in the Short-Term

The well-known bank headquartered in Boston, Massachusetts, Berkshire Hills Bancorp, Inc. (NYSE: BHLB) seems to be ready for a price surge according to its latest charts.

Bullish Indications

#1 Descending Triangle Pattern Breakout: The stock’s daily chart shows that it has recently broken out of a descending triangle pattern in an upward direction. This descending triangle pattern is marked in pink color on the daily chart. An upward breakout from a bearish pattern like descending Triangle is typically a good bullish sign.

#10 Bullish MACD: The MACD line (blue color) is currently above the MACD signal line (orange color) in weekly chart as well. This indicates a possible bullish bias.

Recommended Trade (based on the charts)

Buy Price: If you want to get in on this trade, the ideal buy level for BHLB is above the resistance level of $32.

TP: Our target prices are $37 and $44 in the next 3-6 months.

SL: To limit risk, place a stop loss at $29.60. Note that the stop loss is on a closing basis.

Our target potential upside is almost 15% to 38% in the next 3-6 months. For a risk of $2.40, our target rewards are $5.00 and $12.00. This is a 1:2 and 1:5 risk-reward trade.

Risks to Consider
The stock may reverse its overall trend if it breaks down with high volume from the breakout level of the descending triangle pattern. The sell-off of the stock could also be triggered in case of any negative news, overall weakness in the market, or any regulatory changes in the sector.

Happy trading!
