Earlier this year, Whitecap Resources (WCP.TO) snapped out of a downtrend which had started back in 2017. Since March, however, the shares have been consolidating previous gains in the $5.00 to $6.75. Through this pause, a bullish ascending triangle of higher lows below $6.75 has been building, a sign that underlying accumulation remains intact.
A breakout over $6.75 would complete the triangle and signal the start of a new upleg. Should that occur, initial resistance may appear near $8.00, a round number where the shares previously struggled, then $8.50 based on a measured move. Initial support appears near the $6.00 round number.
Since a March correction in Whitecap Resources (WCP.TO) was contained at a higher low, the shares consolidated for a few weeks, then started to trend back upward, completing a bullish Triple Top breakout in May. Currently, the shares are approaching initial resistance between $6.70 and $6.90. Breakouts there would complete bullish Double Top and Spread Double Top patterns, confirming that the underlying uptrend has resumed. Should that occur, next potential resistance on trend may appear near $7.75, a previous column high, then the $8.85 to $9.25 area based on vertical and horizontal counts. Initial support appears near $5.95 based on a common 3-box reversal and a recent column low. With a perfect SMAX score of 10, WCP.TO is exhibiting strength across the asset classes.
