A perfect channel

The band 2850-2900 provides support and made the price revert twice since last summer.

The stock doesn’t really go sporadically within the boundaries of the channel. As you can see, it tends to plunge fiercely and then start a new upswing in a steadier manner rising at a constant angle relative to the channel boundaries.
If nothing changes in the dynamics of this stock, we’re up for another upswing that’ll likely reach 3500.
Projecting the same pace and angle of ascension into the future, it should take around three months for the stock to get there. Hence, it’s a long-term game.
If you’re ok to hold the stock for a couple of months, buy it now, and hold it until it comes to 3500.
Over there, you’ll potentially make a minimum of 10% gain if the scenario is completed.
