This Stock Looks Poised to Move Higher in the Short-Term

PagSeguro Digital Ltd (NYSE: PAGS) seems to be poised for a price surge as per its latest charts. The company provides financial technology solutions and services for consumers, individual entrepreneurs, micro-merchants, and small and medium-sized companies in Brazil and internationally.

Bullish Indications

#1 Falling Wedge Pattern Breakout: As you can see from the daily chart, the stock was forming a falling wedge pattern for the past few weeks. These are marked as pink color lines.

A falling wedge is a bullish pattern and a breakout from it implies that the stock may move higher in the short term.
