The international protective clothing provider whose key products include disposable protective clothing, chemical protective suits, fire fighting, and heat-protective apparel, Lakeland Industries, Inc. (NASDAQ: LAKE) seems poised for a price surge according to its latest charts.
#1 Symmetrical Triangle Pattern Breakout: As seen in the daily chart, a symmetrical triangle pattern was formed during the past few weeks. This pattern is shown in pink color lines and represents a period of consolidation before the price breaks out.
A symmetrical triangle pattern is typically formed when there is an indecision in the price movements and uncertainty among the buyers and sellers. Once a breakout from the upper trend line of the pattern occurs, it usually signifies the start of a new bullish trend. Currently, the stock has broken out of the symmetrical triangle pattern, indicating bullishness.
#2 Above MAs: The stock price is currently above both 50-day as well as 200-day SMA. This is a possible bullish sign.
#4 Double Bottom Pattern: The daily chart shows that the stock is currently forming a double bottom pattern.
This is marked in orange color.
A double bottom pattern is a bullish reversal pattern and a breakout from it would indicate that the stock could possibly move upwards.
#5 Strong Support, consolidation: The weekly chart shows that the stock has currently broken out of a long-term resistance level. This is marked as a purple color line. This area now acts as a great support area. The stock is currently consolidating after the breakout and seems to be getting ready for an upmove. This consolidation area is marked as a green rectangle. All these are possible bullish signs.
#6 MACD above Signal Line: In the weekly chart, the MACD (light blue color) is currently above the MACD signal line (orange color), indicating bullishness.
#7 Bullish ADX and DI: The ADX indicator shows bullishness in the weekly chart as well, as the (+DI) line is greater than (-DI), ADX and (+DI) are above (-DI), and ADX has risen above both (+DI) and (-DI).

SL: To limit risk, place a stop loss at $15.30. Note that this stop loss is on a closing basis.
Our target potential upside is 22% to 44% in the next 4-6 months.
