Universal Health Realty Income Trust forms bullish "Symmetrical Continuation Triangle" chart pattern
Mar 12, 2012

Recognia has detected a "Symmetrical Continuation Triangle (Bullish)" chart pattern formed on Universal Health Realty Income Trust (UHT:NYSE). This bullish signal indicates that the stock price may rise from the close of $39.09 to the range of $41.90 - $42.60. The pattern formed over 26 days which is roughly the period of time in which the target price range may be achieved, according to standard principles of technical analysis.

Tells Me: The price has broken upward out of a consolidation period, suggesting a continuation of the prior uptrend. A Symmetrical Continuation Triangle (Bullish) shows two converging trendlines as prices reach lower highs and higher lows. Volume diminishes as the price swings back and forth between an increasingly narrow range reflecting uncertainty in the market direction. Then well before the triangle reaches its apex, the price breaks out above the upper trendline with a noticeable increase in volume, confirming the pattern as a continuation of the prior uptrend.

This bullish pattern can be seen on the following chart and was detected by Recognia proprietary pattern recognition technology.
