IRM - Cup & Handle (Bullish)

NYSE:IRM   Iron Mountain Incorporated (Delaware)
IRM has just broken up from a Cup & Handle Formation guys! This is a continuation pattern if the trend prior to this pattern was "up". The cup's formation should preferably be at least 1 to 6 months in duration. The "cup" was a mere 23.8% fib retracement of the prior uptrend while the handle was a shallow 38.2 fibonacci retracement from the cup's "rim" both of which are ideal ( ie "shallow" retracements).

It would have been perfect if we see a high volume break up as well (not seeing that though). However it is still worth a shot to trade this pattern as it has good risk/reward ratio.

The initial profit target is around $52 (projecting the same distance for the cup's depth of $5 from the rim. Initial stop loss should be placed several ticks below the cup's rim (say 45.90). Trail stops upwards as trade goes our way.

Comment: At the timing of earlier writing the volume was still nondescript. However it later became a high volume day as traders starting to notice this breakup and started piling in! WIth this high volume breakup, the odds have increased for an initial C&H target of $52.
