Cemex has been trading above a rising trend-line for more than two years (dashed line) and has a rising 40-week moving average (40wMA). It stayed in a minor trading range mostly between $10 (U.S.) and $12.50 in 2013 (dotted lines). The stock recently pierced above the top of this range to signal the resumption of the up-trend (A). Only a decline below the rising trend-line near about $11.50 would be negative.
Point & Figure measurements provide targets of $15 and $17 (15.6-per-cent and 40-per-cent appreciation potentials from current levels). Higher targets are visible.
