Weekly Cup and Handle

NASDAQ:ENSG   The Ensign Group, Inc
Earnings 11-4
This is on the weekly timeframe
Targets are based on depth of cup
Cup and handle patterns form as the result of consolidation after an uptrending stock tests its previous highs. At that level, traders who bought the stock near the previous highs are likely to sell, causing a gentle pullback. This pullback is then met with bullish activity, which causes the rounded bottom and rise of the right side of the cup. As the stock once again tests its highs, another pullback – the handle – is observed, but this time bullish investors are able to push the stock higher as they snap up discounted shares.

The weekly chart is the one that provides the broader view. It tends to smooth out the price action, cutting out much of the noise that you find in a daily chart .
It also gives you more history so you can see a stock's longer-term trends. On a weekly chart you're likelier to spot a base that's several months to more than a year long. A strong C&H pattern needs at least 7 weeks to form.

The most powerful Cup and Handle patterns have a shallow retracement, not exceeding ⅓ of the cup’s total size. Although some may trade the pattern when it breaks the R of the handle, the pattern is not considered valid until long entry level is met by others. WE all have our own way of doing things. The handle holds support so some feel safer to enter there after R is broken

Generally, cups with longer and more "U" shaped bottoms provide a stronger signal
NV is very high Monthly candle is a doji
