In looking at the attached Candlestick chart of TRI.TO, we see that the shares found a bottom at around the $120.00 area back in May of last year. Since then, the accumulation phase began with a consistent pattern of higher highs and higher lows up until May of this year. The shares pulled back and broke below its 50 Day Moving Average finding support at $160.00. Since May we see an ascending triangle forming with higher lows and the current high of $180.00 proving to be solid upside resistance. It will be interesting to see moving forward if this ascending triangle can lead to a breakout to the upside above its resistance at $180.00.
In the attached Point and Figure Chart at a 2% Scale, we see the share’s most recent breakout to the upside back in December when the shares formed a new upleg breaking above $151.92. In April the shares pulled back into a column of O’s finding support at $158.06. Now we see an ascending triangle pattern also form in the Point and Figure chart. Two Bull traps formed this month and last month at the $181.00 area. If the shares manage to break above the $185.19 resistance level, next potential resistance above that, is at the $200.00 area based on a measured move and a psychological number. Support can be found at $167.73 and, below that, $158.06. With an SMAX Score of 8 out of 10, TRI.TO is exhibiting near term strength against most asset classes.
