Allegheny Technologies Inc. declined from $46.32 to $7.08 (A-B) below its falling 40-week Moving Average (40wMA) then rallied and stayed in a trading range mostly between $11.50 and $18.50 for most of 2016. This price action produced a bullish technical pattern known as a V-Extended (dotted lines). The stock rallied above the top of this pattern in early 2017 (C), pulled back to support (D), and now appears ready to begin a new up-trend (E). Behaviour indicators including the rising 40wMA and the rising trend-line (solid line) confirm the positive status. Only a decline below $19-20 would be negative. Point & Figure measurements provide targets of $29 and $32. Higher targets are visible.
