Symantec Corp. stayed in a trading range mostly between $13 (U.S.) and $20 from 2009 to 2012 (dashed lines). The subsequent rise signalled the breakout from this large area of accumulation and the start of a new major up-trend (A). Symantec had an orderly pullback to its rising 40-week moving average (40wMA - B) and now appears ready to resume the up-trend (C). Only a decline below $21-$22 would be negative.
Point & Figure measurements provide an initial target of $29. The large trading range supports higher targets.
