Symmetric Triangle Chart Pattern Analysis - Symmetric Triangle Pattern.
A symmetric triangle pattern represents the area of indecision where the movement direction is questioned. Chart Pattern Analysis usually considers a symmetric triangle chart pattern as a continuation formation which resolves in the direction of a larger trend, but it may also mark the trend reversal. Volume diminishes during the formation and explodes at the breakout. After breakout (similar to rectangle), support may turn into potential resistance and vice versa.
Tips:
# 1 As a continuation pattern, the symmetric triangle usually appears within a young trend characterized by neutral long-term indicators and overbought/oversold short-term indicators. The symmetric triangle resets short-term indicators to neutral and then continues movement in parent's direction.
# 2 As a reversal formation, the symmetric triangle chart pattern appears in a mature trend characterized by overbought/oversold long-term and short-term indicators. This situation usually generates divergence on long-term indicators. For the best results, the symmetric triangle pattern should be considered together with other chart pattern analysis, technical analysis signals and technical trading techniques.
Estimated Target: the main trend support/resistance line.

The uptrend support line (101.26) is broken. Usually a broken support is considered to be a long-term bearish signal, but since daily indicators are oversold a short-term pull back is possible. COF may retest the broken support line. It is considered to be a resistance line now. Use the following links to access Trend Support/Resistance Help, or use the Technical Stock Screener to see the list of stocks with broken trend support in a long-term trend.

Medium-term trend: [See COF medium-term trend chart]
A medium-term uptrend had started on May 3, 2018 at 86.95 and reached 101.26 on August 27, 2018. COF gained -14.31 points, or -16.46%, in 16 weeks. The chart has formed a Rising Wedge chart pattern. The trend support level is at 97.08 and resistance is at 102.19. A Rising Wage is a triangle formation with a noticeable slant to the upside. It represents the loss of an upside momentum on each successive high and has a bearish bias. The Rising wedge usually marks a reversal in an uptrend. In a downtrend a rising wedge is considered to be a continuation pattern. Use the following link to access a Rising Wedge chart pattern help, or use a Technical Stock Screener to see the list of stocks with Rising Wedge pattern in a medium-term trend.

Daily Lane's Stochastic is oversold while Williams' Percentage Range is strongly oversold. Use the Technical Stock Screener to see the list of stocks with oversold daily Lane's Stochastic or strongly oversold daily Williams' Percentage Range. Oscillators are designed to signal a possible trend reversal. They can act as alerts and should be taken in conjunction with other technical analysis tools. Oscillators can be used to confirm other technical signals. Use the following links to access Lane's Stochastic and Williams' Percentage Range help.

The daily MACD line is below its signal line since August 30, 2018. This is an indication that the short-term trend is down.

During the last week, the price has fallen below the Parabolic SAR (stop and reversal). A Parabolic SAR above the price is a bearish signal, and it indicates that momentum is likely to remain in the downward direction. A Parabolic SAR is used as a trailing stop loss for long or short positions. It works best during strong trending periods. Use the following links to access Parabolic SAR Help, or use the Technical Stock Screener to see the list of stocks with the Parabolic SAR close to the price level.

The distance between the Bollinger Bands (4.33%) is close to one year low (5.11%). It is 53.64% lower than one year average. It indicates the period of low volatility of the stock price, and it is considered a buy signal for the option traders. The Bollinger Bands are often used with a non-oscillator indicator like chart patterns or a trendline. The signals are considered more reliable if these indicators confirm the recommendation of the Bollinger Bands. Use the following links to access the Bollinger Bands Help, or use the Technical Stock Screener to see the list of stocks with the price above the Upper Bollinger Band or below the Lower Bollinger Band.

Price is close to the 50 Day Moving Average. While daily technical indicators are oversold, the 50 Day Moving Average is considered a support level. The moving average crossover signals work better when the stock develops a strong trend, but they are ineffective when the stock is in a trading range. Moving average crossover systems can be effective, but should be used in conjunction with trend patterns, momentum indicators, candlesticks and other aspects of technical analysis. Use the following links to access Moving Average Crossover trading technique, or use the Technical Stock Screener to see the list of stocks with the Moving Average close to the price level.
