What The Charts Say

Bullish on IGM Financial Add to ...

The decline in shares of IGM Financial Inc. from $54.95 in November, 2007 (A) to $24.20 in February, 2009 (B), was followed by a sharp rise to $45.43 in August, 2009 (C), and a horizontal trading range mostly between $37 and $45. This price action produced a bullish technical pattern known as a V-Extended formation (dashed lines). The recent rise to $49.42 (D) signalled the breakout and the start of a new major up-leg. Only a decline below the 40-week moving average (about $43) would reverse the positive status of this stock.

Point & Figure measurements provide targets of $54 and $59.
