The mining company based in the Freeport-McMoRan Center, in Phoenix, Arizona, Freeport-McMoRan Inc. (NYSE: FCX) shows signs of an upcoming price surge according to its latest charts.
#1 Symmetrical Triangle Pattern Breakout: The daily chart shows that the stock was forming 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. 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.
#2 Above MAs: The stock is currently trading above its 50-day as well as 200-day SMA and had moved higher with high volume. This indicates an overall bullishness of the stock.
#4 MACD above Signal Line: As you can see from the daily chart, the MACD line (blue color) is currently above the signal line (orange color). This indicates a possible bullish bias.
#5 Bullish Aroon: The value of Aroon Up (orange line) is above 70 while Aroon Down (blue line) is below 30 in the daily chart. This indicates possible bullishness.
#6 Downtrend Broken: The weekly chart shows that the stock has currently broken out of the prevailing downtrend. This downtrend line is marked in orange color in the chart. This is a possible bullish indication.
#7 Bullish MACD: The MACD line (blue color) is currently above the MACD signal line (orange color) in the weekly chart as well, indicating possible bullishness.
#8 Bullish Aroon: The value of Aroon Up (orange line) is above 70 while Aroon Down (blue line) is below 30 in the weekly chart. This indicates bullishness.
