Over the past seven months, LPL a major level of support has emerged around the $9.50 (green) area. That line is also the “neckline” for the stock’s head and shoulders (H&S) reversal pattern. Above the neckline you can see the H&S pattern (blue) has been completed.
Confirmation of the bearish H&S pattern would occur if LPL were to break the support, and lower prices would be expected from there. Therefore a short trade to be entered on a break below the $9.50 level.
