The breach of the resistance trend line at the upper end of this Triangle chart pattern found quick selling pressure, taking the market into the mid-range of the triangle before an intra-day reversal carried the market to a close well above the entry point. This retest behavior is often seen prior to a continuation of the breakout, as the major support at the within a triangle is seen as a floor for speculative buyers to add position on the market's technical strength.

The breakout registers a full 10 bars, indicating strong momentum behind the move. The projected price forecast paints a targeted range for the completion of this pattern between $2.59 and $2.65, which will put the nearby futures at new contract highs if achieved.
