Trade Ideas: LGF

Markets are treading water in the run up to tomorrow's Fed meeting. The Trade Ideas scan was also relatively quiet as it took 4 minutes to come up with 8 stocks. Topping the bill at 32 appearances was IShares Dow Jones Energy (IYE). This was well clear of a glut of stocks appearing around 20 times over the course of the day. The best looking of the bunch was Lions Gate Entertainment (LGF).

The stock is breaking from a consolidation triangle on light volume after moving away from the May/July double bottom. The potential upside is $12.50 (measured move forward). Stops can go on a loss of triangle lows and/or May/June reaction highs.
