Cup and handle pattern targets are calculated using cup depth and fibonacci levels..American entrepreneur William J. O'Neil defined the cup and handle (C&H) pattern in his 1988 classic, "How to Make Money in Stocks.

O’Neil pointed to four stages in a cup and handle breakout:

The security posts a significant high in an uptrend that accelerated between one and three months prior.
The next pullback carves out a rounding bottom no deeper than the 50% retracement of the prior trend. This marks the "cup."
The next breakout attempt fails at the prior high, yielding a secondary pullback that holds near resistance, grinding out a smaller rounding bottom, which becomes the "handle."
The security returns to resistance for the second time and breaks out, yielding a measured move target equal to the depth of the cup.
