This Stock Just Broke Out On Very High Volume

The American Audio company that develops and manufactures smart speakers, Sonos Inc. (NASDAQ: SONO) shows signs of an upcoming price surge according to its latest charts.

Bullish Indications

#1 Symmetrical Triangle Pattern Breakout: As you can see from the daily chart, the stock had recently formed a symmetrical triangle pattern. This pattern is shown as purple color lines. A symmetrical triangle pattern represents a period of consolidation before the price breaks out or breaks down.

This pattern is typically formed when there is indecision in the price movements and uncertainty among the buyers and sellers. Once a breakout from the upper line occurs, it usually signifies the start of a new bullish trend. Currently, the stock has broken out of the symmetrical triangle pattern with very high volume, indicating possible bullishness.
