Carvana has been trending higher since March, running from $30 to $218, for an incredible gain of over 700% in just over six months. Carvana's six month rally has been mostly contained within a bull channel, represented by the parallel blue lines. The stock is currently resting comfortably in the center of that channel. 

If you look closely on the far right, you'll see a flag pattern, highlighted in purple. This is a bullish consolidation pattern. That means the stock is just taking a rest before continuing its current trend. The bull flag pattern conservatively projects shares of Carvana to the $270 area, which would represent a new all time high. 

After a recent pullback, Carvana received a buy signal from its MACD indicator, highlighted in yellow. 

The only negative on Carvana's chart is an area of resistance at $230, represented by the red dotted line. If Carvana can get above $230, it should be able to cruise to $270 and beyond. 

The bottom line, can a stock that's gained over 700% in six months go even higher? Yes it can. Experienced traders know that you don't want to fight momentum in this market.
