Energy ETF (XLE) has struggled to get above the $80 level while creating a series of higher lows over the past 18-months. This price action could be creating a bullish ascending triangle pattern.

The top of the pattern comes into play at the resistance line (1).

If the resistance line (1) is taken out, a “measured move” calculation suggests it could rally up to the $95 zone, which is more than 20% above current prices.

If XLE breaks out, it should attract buyers!
