Technical Analysis – A Boeing breakout is potentially around the corner

Boeing is edging lower today as the market seems to be settling inside a symmetrical triangle. This is a very common pattern in technical analysis with a rather low market performance when confirmed. However, theory states that usually the breakout follows the underlying medium-term trend, which in our case is bullish and has been since the double-bottom pattern formed during 2022.

This range-trending is clearly depicted by the momentum indicators.  The Average Directional Movement Index (ADX) is struggling to rise above its 25-threshold and the stochastic oscillator is hovering around its midpoint. However, the latter is obeying an upward sloping trend for now. In addition, Bollinger bands are trying to tighten and the 50- and 100-day simple moving averages (SMAs) are on a convergence path.

Should the bears manage to clear the busy 202-207.07 area, they would then potentially set their eyes on the 50% Fibonacci retracement of the March 15, 2011 – June 14, 2022 downtrend at 195.52. Even lower, the busier 183-189 range could trouble them.

On the other hand, the bulls would potentially face resistance at the upper boundary of the formed triangle, before testing the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement at 215.10. Then a series of highs starting with the February 10, 2022 high at 223.00 have the potential to dent the bulls’ appetite.

To sum up, a symmetrical triangle appears to be dictating the current Boeing stock price action as market participants are opting to stay on the sidelines.
