This Stock Just Broke Out

The company that manufactures fiberglass motorized boats distributed and marketed through its independent dealer network, Marine Products Corp. (NYSE: MPX) seems to be gearing up for a surge as per its latest charts.

Bullish Indications

#1 Symmetrical triangle pattern Breakout: MPX’s daily chart shows that the stock has currently broken out of a Symmetrical Triangle pattern. This is a possible bullish sign. A symmetrical triangle is a continuation pattern and is characterized by two converging trendlines connecting a series of sequential peaks and troughs. This is marked on the daily chart as purple lines.

#2 Trading Above MA: The stock is currently trading above its 50-day SMA, which implies that the bulls are currently in control.

#3 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 bullish.

#4 Bullish ADX and DI: The ADX indicator shows bullishness because (+DI) is greater than (-DI), ADX and (+DI) are above (-DI), and ADX is moving up from below (-DI) and (+DI).

#5 Bullish Stochastic: As you can see from the daily chart, the %K line (blue color) is currently above the %D line (orange color), indicating a bullish bias.

#6 Fibonacci Support: Usually, after an up-move, stocks typically retraces to any of the key Fibonacci levels before surging back again. MPX had taken support at the 38.2% Fibonacci support level as seen in the weekly chart before surging higher. This seems like a possible bullish sign. The stock is also trading near a strong support area. This seems like a good area to move higher.
