Bullish Indications

#1 Symmetrical Triangle Pattern breakout: The daily charts shows that the stock was recently forming a symmetrical triangle pattern. This is marked in 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 trend line occurs, it usually signifies the start of a new bullish trend. Currently, the stock has broken out of the symmetrical triangle pattern. This is a possible bullish sign.
