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.
#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.
#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.
#7 MACD above Signal Line: In the weekly chart, the MACD line (blue color) has crossed above the MACD signal line (orange color) which is a bullish signal.
#8 Bullish Stochastic: In the weekly chart as well, the %K line (blue color) is currently above the %D line (orange color), indicating a bullish bias.

Our target potential upside is 27% to 58% in the next 3-6 months. For a risk of $2.17, the target rewards are $4.23 and $9.23. This is a nearly 1:2 and 1:4 risk-reward trade.
In other words, this trade offers nearly 2x to 4x more potential upside than downside.
