Sleep Number ($SNBR) may soon be in play as an explosive breakout trade. Here’s why we like it…
Bedding manufacturer Sleep Number ($SNBR) has formed a bullish basing pattern since stalling at $52 in late July.
The pullback from its recent peak is 28% deep (less than 30% is healthy), as the stock found support at its rising 200-day MA in early September, then again in late September/early October.
The price action recently cleared resistance at $45, and is now forming a short-term consolidation above the rising 20-day exponential moving average, which has crossed above the 50-day moving average.
The daily chart below shows how the stock may be setting up for a potential breakout swing trade soon:
Note the big volume spike on October 16 was not a bearish distribution day because the price closed above the middle of its intraday range.
We are looking to buy $SNBR on a move back above its short-term downtrend line shown on the chart above. We will be looking for such a rally to be confirmed by higher volume.
