$CCJ Daily Elliott Wave Chart

Daily Chart of $CCJ above shows that the stock has traded sideways in the past year. The stock needs to either break above wave (1) or below wave (2) to show us the next direction. Either way, we are bullish against wave (II) low at 5.30. Break above wave (1) would confirm the bullish sequence and opens more upside. Break below wave (2) on the other hand suggests a double correction within wave (2). As far as pivot at 5.3 low stays intact, expect pullback to find support in 3, 7, or 11 swing for further upside.
