CrowdStrike / $CRWD Turns Bullish.
Recent developments in the Middle East have once again drawn our attention to the Cyber security sector. Having had a successful IPO in June, CrowdStrike (NASDAQ: CRWD) rallied 80% in 2 months to reach the $101 region before the entire sector fell out of favour and sold off heavily to a low of $45. Controversy has also contributed as the POTUS made particular care to mention it publicly regarding the scandal in Ukraine, to compound the trouble earnings were also seen as a disappointment to investors and analysts.
Rumors and the Options markets are hinting that a rally is on the cards, so lets take a look at the technicals on the CRWD charts (below) to see if we can find some hints towards direction and scale of the next move.

The 30-Min Chart had a Very Interesting Close on Friday.
CRWD formed a beautiful Flag pattern, which is extremely bullish and will place the stock on watch lists globally, as many investors and traders start to prepare for Monday. A significant break up from this pattern could ignite a significant move.
Targets to consider:
Short term $55 – to the Fibonacci golden pocket.
Medium Term $58 – to the overall .236 Fib retrace level.
Longer term $66 – to a confluence of Fibonacci expansion and retrace levels.
A breakout and up from the flag could be a good signal to possibly accumulate but any break will more than likely be back tested so no need to jump in to early.
