Like Disney DIS Exxon Mobil XOM Surges in Breakout

Dec 12, 2016: 12:03 PM CST

Like Disney (DIS) last week, Exxon-Mobil (XOM) broke resistance, triggering a powerful bullish breakout.

Take a moment to review my post last Friday about Disney’s (DIS) bullish breakout into a key target.

After that, note the similar pattern and breakout through resistance in Exxon-Mobil (XOM) Monday.

XOM shares created a Double Bottom – on positive divergences – reversal pattern into November.

Price returned to the upper trendline just above $88.00 per share and buyers broke price above this level Friday, triggering a light bullish breakout.

Shares surged today on a gap and trend day above $90.00, officially clearing resistance to trigger a new bullish impulse likely back toward $94.00.

We’re targeting the prior high – a simple level – into the $94.00 level.

Use this as a quick update and good example of price forming then breaking a key resistance pivot.

    Trading through breakouts can be fairly like able, but just need to make sure we get it right in order to work it out. I trade with OctaFX broker where I get extra room to play with through the stunning features and facilities which include having lowest possible spread from 0.1 pips to high leverage up to 1.500 while there is also 50% bonus on deposit which is use able, so that makes it ever so interesting for me with working.
