What the Charts Say

Bullish on Eli Lilly Add to ...

For the past three years, Eli Lilly and Co. traded within a horizontal trading range between $32.50 and $38 and then in a higher range between $35 and $39. This price action produced a bullish technical pattern known as a Duplex Horizontal (dashed lines). The recent rise to $42.03 (A) signalled the breakout from this formation and the start of a new major up-leg. Only a decline below about $37.50 would be negative.
