Imax Corp. (Friday’s close US$21.59) declined from $43.62 in 2015 (not shown) to $18.15 in 2017 (A), formed a horizontal trading range mostly between $18 and $26 and then, except for a brief dip during the 2020 “flash-crash” (B), created another trading range mostly between $10 and $16 (dashed lines). This price action produced a bullish technical pattern known as a Delayed Ending.

The recent rise above this pattern (C) and above the long-term falling trend-line (dotted line) suggests a breakout and the start of a new uptrend; however, only a sustained rise above $26-$27 would confirm it.

There is good support near $19-$20; only a sustained decline below the 40wMA (currently near $17.50) would cancel the upside potential.

A rise above $26-$27 would signal Point & Figure targets of $31 and $34. Potentially higher targets are visible.
