Spirit AeroSystems Holdings, Inc. (SPR) recently triggered out of a symmetrical triangle pattern, which formed over the past year.
The breakout occurred with a surge in volume, which lends confidence to the validity of the pattern.
There is a minimum expected price objective of 29 dollars, which is obtained by expanding from the breakout the same distance as the height of the pattern.
Currently, SPR is forming a bull-flag pattern that may provide a low-risk/high-reward long entry opportunity.
The trade will trigger with a daily close above the upper resistance line, which is 24 dollars. That $24 level was an important resistance point in mid 2008 and the first quarter of 2010.
A move above $24, therefore, will be significant.
