America’s largest online lending marketplace that connects borrowers with multiple lenders so they can find the best deals on loans, credit cards, deposit accounts, insurance and more, Lendingtree Inc. (NASDAQ: TREE) seems to be poised for a decline in its price in the near term as per its latest charts.
#1 Rising Wedge Pattern Breakdown: The daily chart shows that TREE has recently broken down from a rising wedge pattern that was formed during the past few months. This is a bearish pattern and is marked in blue color in the daily chart. Once a stock breaks down from the bottom of the rising wedge pattern, it typically moves lower in the near-term.
