Covanta Holding Corp. had a sharp decline from $30.37 (U.S.) to $12.47 (A-B), a recovery rally to $19.69 (C) and then settled in a large horizontal trading range mostly between $13.50 and $17.50 (dashed lines). The recent rise to $19.34 pierced above the top of this area of accumulation to signal the breakout and the start of a new major up-leg. Only a decline below about $17 would be negative.
Point & Figure measurements provide targets of $21 and $24. The large trading range (dashed lines) supports higher targets.
