The California-based cloud content management and file sharing service for businesses, Box Inc. (NYSE: BOX) seem to be poised for a price surge as per 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 pink 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, which is a possible bullish sign.
#2 Price above MAs: The price is currently above the short-term moving average of 50-day SMA as well as the long-term moving average of 200-day SMA. This is a possible bullish sign.
#4 MACD above Signal Line: The MACD (light blue color) is currently above the MACD signal line (orange color) in the daily chart. This typically indicates a bullish setup.
#5 Bullish Stoch: The %K line is above the %D line of the stochastic in the daily chart. It is also moving up from oversold levels. All these indicate possible bullishness.
#6 Bullish ADX and DI: The ADX indicator shows bullishness in the weekly chart because (+DI) is greater than (-DI), ADX and (+DI) are above (-DI), and ADX has moved up from below (-DI).
#7 Fibonacci Support: Usually, after an up-move, stocks typically retrace to any of the key Fibonacci levels before surging back again. BOX had taken support at the 23.6% Fibonacci support level before moving higher, as seen in the weekly chart. So, this seems like a strong support area for the stock.
#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 possible bullishness.
