#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 orange 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 Price Above MA: The stock is currently above the 50-day SMA, indicating that the bulls are gaining control.
#3 MACD Above Signal Line: In the daily chart, the MACD line (light blue color) is currently above the MACD signal line (orange color) which is typically considered bullish.
#4 Bullish Stoch: The %K line (blue color) is above the %D line (orange color) of the stochastic in the daily chart, indicating possible bullishness.
#5 Fibonacci Support: Usually, after an up-move, stocks retrace to any of the key Fibonacci levels before surging back again. The stock had taken support at the 23.6% Fibonacci support level of the upmove as seen in the weekly chart. Thereafter, the stock had moved higher and is currently above the 38.2% Fibonacci support level. This is a possible bullish sign.
#6 Bullish Stoch: The %K line of the stochastic is above the %D line in the weekly charts as well. It is also moving higher after reaching oversold levels, indicating overall bullishness for the stock.
