5 Stock Charts You Need to See


Everyone's favorite search engine giant looks a bit more bullish right now.

Google ( GOOG) has made a stellar run in 2013, rallying more than 25% year-to-date. That's substantial outperformance over the broad market, and recent price action points to Google widening its lead. Shares of GOOG have spent the last couple of months consolidating sideways in a pattern called a symmetrical triangle. The breakout is a buy signal.

>>5 Hated Earnings Stocks You Should Love

A symmetrical triangle is a price pattern that's formed by trendline resistance and support lines that are converging at approximately the same rate. A move outside of the triangle pattern is the signal to place a trade in the direction of the move. Typically (but not always), continuation patterns like triangles lead to breakouts in the direction of a stock's original price action. For Google, that original direction was up.

Since Google's symmetrical triangle is squeezing shares in a tighter and tighter range, it's also pointing toward the possibility of a volatility squeeze for shares of GOOG. That means traders should expect the move out of the pattern to be fast and big. Keep a close eye on this name.
