Having topped out at $68.93 (A) during late 2010, Canadian Tire began to trade in a descending channel (dotted lines) till it found support near its 2010 lows (lower dashed line – B). A quick reversal occurred at that point, which eventually brought Canadian Tire above its downtrend channel. The stock now appears ready to resume the long-term up-trend toward higher targets (C). Only a decline below about $60 would reverse the positive status of this stock.

Point & Figure measurements provide targets of $74 and $79. Higher targets are visible.
