5 Banks to Buy After JPMorgan's Big Mistake

Fulton Financial

Regional banking stock Fulton Financial (FULT - Get Report) is a smaller name that's showing traders an attractive long-term pattern this week. For the past several months, Fulton has been forming an ascending triangle setup, a formation that has bullish implications for buyers right now.

Here's how to trade it:

Two important technical levels form an ascending triangle: horizontal resistance above shares (in this case at the $10.60 level), and uptrending support below them. As FULT bounces in between those to lines, it's getting squeezed closer and closer to a breakout above resistance at $10.60. That breakout becomes the buy signal that traders need to look out for.

Trading volume has been declining over the course of this pattern, an unlikely positive sign for our ascending triangle setup. In a textbook ascending triangle, traders actually want to see volume taper off, only to spike when the breakout happens. The spike in volume above $10.60 tells us that buyers are participating in the breakout.

Wait for that to happen before you participate too.
