This Stock Just Broke Out and Looks Poised for a Surge

The space technology company specializing in manufacturing communication, Earth observation, radar, and on-orbit servicing satellites, satellite products, and related services, Maxar Technologies Inc. (NYSE: MAXR) 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, MAXR had recently formed a symmetrical triangle pattern. This pattern is shown as pink lines. A symmetrical triangle pattern represents a period of consolidation before the price breaks out.

This 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, indicating possible bullishness.
