Daily Chart – MLHR

#2 Price above MAs: The price is currently above both the short-term moving average of 50-day SMA and the longer-term moving average of 200-day SMA. This usually implies a possible bullish bias for the stock.

This is a possible bullish setup.

#4 %K above %D: The %K line of the stochastic is currently above the %D line in the daily chart, indicating possible bullishness.

#5 Bullish ADX and DI: The ADX indicator shows bullishness in the daily chart because the (+DI) line and the ADX line is greater than (-DI), and ADX has started to move up from below (-DI) and (+DI).

#6 Ascending Triangle Pattern Breakout: In the weekly chart, we can see that the stock has currently broken out of an ascending triangle pattern. This pattern is marked in the chart in pink color. An ascending triangle pattern is a strong bullish pattern and a breakout from it indicates that the stock may move higher in the short term.

The sell-off of the stock could also be triggered in case of any negative news, overall weakness in the market, or any regulatory changes in its sector.

Happy Trading!
