Lennar Corp. declined from about $69 in 2005 (not shown) to $3.30 (A), settled in a trading range between $6 and $11 and then in a range between $12 and $21.50. This price action produced a bullish technical pattern known as a Duplex Horizontal (dashed lines). The subsequent rise (B-C) easily pierced above the resistance at around $21.50 and signalled the breakout from the Duplex Horizontal formation (dashed lines). Only a decline below $20-$21 would be negative.
Point & Figure measurements provide a target of $36. The Duplex Horizontal formation (dashed lines) supports higher targets.
