The American multinational investment bank and financial services corporation headquartered in New York City, Citigroup Inc. (NYSE: C) shows signs of an upcoming price surge according to its latest charts.
#1 Symmetrical Triangle Pattern Breakout: As you can see from the daily chart, Citigroup had recently formed a symmetrical triangle pattern. This pattern is shown as pink 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.

Currently, the stock has broken out of the symmetrical triangle pattern, indicating possible bullishness.
