Builders FirstSource
(BLDR) is a construction supplier that has a developed a symmetrical continuation triangle over the past 24 days.

The price has broken upward out of a consolidation period, suggesting a continuation of the prior bullish uptrend. This pattern shows two converging trendlines as prices reach lower highs and higher lows. Volume diminishes as the price swings back and forth between an increasingly narrow range reflecting uncertainty in the market direction. Then well before the triangle reaches its apex, the price breaks out above the upper trendline with a noticeable increase in volume, confirming the pattern as a continuation of the uptrend.

Current Price: $6.91

Target Price: $7.60 – $7.80

Stop Loss: $5.65
