On Friday, October 15, 2010, UUP reached a low of $22.17 a share. This level has stopped all declines for three years, and every time it does so, it becomes a stronger support level.

On Friday, October 15, UUP also had a bullish outside reversal day, a pattern typically forecasting that a change in trend either has occurred or is imminent. Since October 15, volume has doubled and has remained high.

UUP rallied through October 19 and then sold off, but to a higher low. UUP is again rallying, and on Wednesday, October 27, it did so on triple the normal volume.

Putting a sell stop just below $22.00 per share, a bullish trade offers an excellent opportunity for strong upside gains.
