CHK: Round 2?

CHK (Chesapeak Energy Corp) was a recent official long trade (March 2nd - 3rd) that hit the final target for a 49% gain in less than 24 hours from entry. After kissing the downtrend line & pulling back within this falling wedge pattern, the stock now looks ready for the next thrust up.

As the stock has started to move in pre-market, I'm going to wait see how it opens before deciding whether or not to add this as an official trade idea. Whether I do or don't, for those interested, my initial & minimum price target would be that same downtrend line from the previous trade which currently comes in right around the 5.00 resistance level & my stop would be on move below 3.65, possibly higher, depending on my entry price.

    Could this also be a bullish pennant? Also I’m guessing this trade would imply some more head room for the energy sector and oil.

      Could be a bullish pennant although a bit on the bigger end in size (relative to the flagpole) of what some might consider a pennant. Regardless, the net effect is the same whether it is a pennant or a falling wedge: A break above (which we have today) is a bullish technical event.
      I had started buying CHK in pre-market with the intention of adding but I’d like to see some follow-thru with more impulsive buying, especially a pop over the earlier highs from this morning before adding.
