Looking at the Setup

Besides the Technical Rating, ChartMill assigns a Setup Rating to every stock to determine the degree of consolidation. This rating, ranging from 0 to 10, is updated daily and evaluates various short-term technical indicators. NYSE:HP currently holds a 10 as its setup rating, suggesting a particular level of consolidation in the stock.

HP has an excellent technical rating and also presents a decent setup pattern. Prices have been consolidating lately and the volatility has been reduced. There is very little resistance above the current price. There is a support zone below the current price at 40.13, a Stop Loss order could be placed below this zone. We notice that large players showed an interest for HP in the last couple of days, which is a good sign. Very recently a Pocket Pivot signal was observed. This is another positive sign.

Trading breakout setups.

One way to play this would be to wait for the actual breakout to happen and buy when the stock breaks out above the current consolidation zone. A possible place for a stop loss would be below this zone.
