Breakout traders love tight consolidation.
What does that mean?
It’s when a stock goes sideways in a very tight channel.
Anytime a stock does that, it’s a harbinger of things to come.
Many times a big breakout will happen after this type of action, and many times that breakout will be to the upside.
And we have such a consolidation on Chubb (CB).
Here’s the chart:
CB is above the 30-week moving average, and it’s near a new high.
A bullish market and a breakout above $230.40 could lead to a big move.
We’ll keep an eye on it.
