Alphabet Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOG) Set to Rally 20%
Alphabet Inc. (Nasdaq:GOOG), the tech giant formerly known as Google, is set to rally in the last half of the year. The stock has formed one of my favorite chart patterns – an ascending triangle.
But the big reason is because the ascending triangle pattern gives specific price targets once a key level has been broken. Based on the pattern’s price targets, I expect Alphabet shares to soar more than 20% in the coming months.
To find those price targets, you simply look at the height of the formation. In this case, it’s $200 from the red resistance line to the start of the green trendline. Once shares break above the red trendline, we can expect to see a rapid $200 rally for shares of Alphabet. Likewise, a break below the green trendline would send shares racing $200 in the other direction.
However, ascending triangles tend to be continuation patterns, meaning that, if the trend was up heading into the formation, the stock is expected to break out higher on most occasions.
Overall, the bias in prices is: Upwards.
Note: this chart shows extraordinary price action to the upside.
The projected upper bound is: 1,196.74.
The projected lower bound is: 1,113.85.
The projected closing price is: 1,155.30.
