The online insurance marketplace and lead generation service company headquartered in Cambridge, Massachusetts, EverQuote Inc. (NASDAQ: EVER) seems to be ready for a price surge in the near-term.
#1 Pennant Pattern Breakout: As you can see from the daily chart, the stock was in an uptrend after which it started consolidating and was in a narrow range. This is a classic pennant pattern and is marked in the chart in purple color. A pennant is a continuation pattern. Whenever a stock breaks out of this pattern, it typically continues its previous trend (uptrend in this case). Currently, the stock has broken out of the pennant pattern, which is a bullish sign.
#2 MACD above Signal Line: The daily chart shows that the MACD line (blue color) is above the MACD signal line (orange color). The MACD indicator is also moving up from oversold levels. This is a possible bullish setup.
#4 Bullish Aroon: The daily chart shows that the Aroon Up (orange line) is above 70 while the Aroon Down (blue line) is below 30.
This is a possible bullish sign.
#5 Bullish Stochastic: The %K line is currently above the %D line in the stochastic.
This indicates possible bullishness.
#6 Trendline Support: The weekly chart shows that the stock has been on an uptrend as it has been forming higher highs and higher lows for the past several weeks. Currently, the stock is surging ahead after taking support at the uptrend line. This seems like a good level for the stock to move higher.
#7 %K above %D: The %K line of the stochastic is currently above the %D line in the weekly chart as well, indicating bullishness.
#8 Bullish ADX and DI: The ADX indicator indicates bullishness as the ADX line and the [+DI] line are currently above the [-DI] line.
