Another financial stock that's showing traders a nearly identical pattern this summer is Citigroup (C). Like Morgan Stanley, Citi is forming a double bottom pattern, with shares just a hair's breadth away from breaking out above resistance at $29. Shares made their bottoms quickly -- a good sign that shows shares were able to catch a fast bid at both bottoms, prices that investors perceived to be "bargains" for shares of Citi.
Momentum, measured by 14-day RSI, adds some extra credence to Citi's setup right now. It's been in a solid uptrend since before the stock's first bottom, and the uptrend remains intact today. Since momentum is a leading indicator of price, Citi's RSI trend line bodes well for investors who want to buy this reversal pattern's breakout.
