BroadCom Forms Bullish Continuation Pattern


It has been a rough month for stocks overall, but Broadcom (BRCM) is bucking the selling pressure and challenging resistance. There are two bullish continuation patterns possible on this chart. First, an inverse head-and-shoulders pattern extends back to early March. Second, the right two-thirds of the pattern looks like a cup-with-handle, which is a bullish continuation pattern. This pattern was popularized by William O'Neal of IBD. The stock is also showing relative strength as the BRCM:$SPX ratio hit a new high today. A break above the red resistance zone would signal a continuation of the bigger uptrend and project a move to around 50.
