High basing Pattern in Snap

NYSE:SNAP   Snap Inc
Snap is an expensive growth stock. It’s the kind of name investors have mostly avoided this year, although recent weeks have seen a shift back to such companies.

This chart highlights SNAP’s last four months of consolidation. It isn’t exactly a cup and handle , but there are important similarities: It’s a high basing pattern well above old highs. There’s no single punctuated drop but a gradual fading as momentum slows, followed by incrementally higher lows. The social-media stock is also forming a tight range on the right side, suggesting a breakout may be imminent.

The key line in the sand may be around $64. Prices have challenged that level several times on an intraday basis without a decisive close above it.

There’s also potential support to the downside, with SNAP holding its 50- and 100-day simple moving averages ( SMAs ).
