ALGN Stock With 2 (Unfinished) Ascending Triangles

This is a Post from the Symbol Surfing Blog from Thu, Aug 30, 2018.

Before I get started, you probably saw Warren Buffett on CNBC today with Becky Quick.

He said something I need to add to my list of Warren Buffett's quotes.

"I don't know when to buy stocks, but I know whether to buy stocks."

- Warren Buffett

If you have time, I recommend watching this.

This morning I was scanning the medical device stocks on Symbol Surfing.

There are many double-digit 12 month gainers in the list and 2 triple-digit gainers.

I started looking closer at Align Technology with a 120% 1 year return.

They are the makers of Invisalign.

I have not seen a 1 year chart like this before.

What I see are 2 "unfinished" ascending triangles.

The ascending triangle is a very powerful bullish indicator.

From my limited experience, the stock price usually will continue to dwindle into a smaller and smaller trading range into the right corner of the triangle then there will be a big move up.

Of course, this is not guaranteed.

With ALGN, the stock price doesn't wait for that.

Maybe they don't care about technical analysis.

The chart pattern formed about 3/4's of the way and then the price took off.

It moved up by $100 or 40%.

I am seeing the same pattern now.

If history repeats itself, this stock could move to $450 or higher.

The stock price reached a new record high today as well.

I bought this stock today.

Let me know in the comments section!
