Tara’s Breakout Stock Alert: Cloudera (CLDR)

The US-based software company that provides a software platform for data engineering, data warehousing, machine learning, and analytics that runs in the cloud or on-premises, Cloudera Inc. (NYSE: CLDR) seems to be poised for a price surge as per its latest charts.

Bullish Indications

#1 Symmetrical Triangle Pattern Breakout: The daily chart shows that the stock was forming a symmetrical triangle pattern. This pattern is shown as purple 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 and moved higher, which is a possible bullish sign.
