Bank of America (BAC) has moved above a major resistance zone that has frustrated the shareholders for 3 years. This surge is meaningful. As long as the $18 level holds, this looks like a classic breakout.
The volume surge on the breakout is also very bullish support. This is an industry wide move that looks like the start of a major rally for financials. Don't ignore the surge in financials.
Have a great weekend.
