Why We Like It:
The XBD broker-dealer index looks poised to breakout over resistance and complete a bullish cup-and-handle pattern. If that occurs the group could see a significant rally higher. It's probably not a coincidence that AGE has been consolidating under significant resistance at the $58.00 level. A breakout over $58 would be a new all-time high for the stock, surpassing its September 2000 peak. We're suggesting a trigger to go long the stock at $58.15. If triggered our target is the $62.50 level. There is a chance that AGE could encounter some round-number resistance at the $60 level. However, the P&F chart has a quadruple-top breakout buy signal with a $70 target.
