Kodiak Oil & Gas rallied from $3.59 (U.S.) to $10.90 (A-B) and then settled in a large triangle pattern for about one year and-a-half (dotted lines). The subsequent sharp rise (C) signaled the breakout from the triangle formation and produced an over-bought condition. Consequently, the stock pulled back to its rising 40-week Moving Average (D) and now appears ready to resume the up-trend (E). Only a decline below about $10 would be negative.

Measurements provide targets of $14 and $16 (11.9-per-cent and 27.9-per-cent appreciation potentials from current levels). The large triangle pattern (dotted lines) supports higher targets.
