DSW (Friday’s close $27.41) declined from $39.58 to $21.23 (A-B), had a recovery rally to $29.53 (C) followed by another decline to $18.51 (D).
Subsequently, it settled in a bullish technical base known as an Inverse Head-and-Shoulder formation (dashed lines). DSW rose above the top of this pattern (E) to signal the breakout, renewed investor interest, and the start of a new up-trend (solid line).
The stock then pulled back to its 40-week Moving Average (40wMA) where it appears to have found support (F); only a sustained decline below ±$25 would be negative.
A sustained rise above ±$30 would suggest the resumption of the up-trend.
