A break-up at the top trend line at $60.14 will firstly indicate a stronger raising rate. Given the current short-term trend, the stock is expected to rise 5.16% during the next 3 months and, with 90% probability hold a price between $55.91 and $63.24 at the end of this period.

On corrections down there will be some support from the lines at $58.74 and $56.65. A break down below any of these levels will issue sell signals.
