We are not generally fans of pullbacks of this magnitude. However, we do like how BPFH has reacted to support in the congestion area shown by the rectangle. We think long signals should be taken with a stop just below the arrow’s indication (around $11.30).
A break below the bottom of the box would also nullify the setup structure and remove BPFH from the list of current stalk candidates.
