So, if we fast forward to the intraday chart we can see that the price is consolidating once more within a triangle pattern. We might see the price move lower (which will give a lower entry point) before it breaks out higher from the triangle. Take note that if we see the price action move lower beyond the triangle support (red dotted) line then the set-up would have failed to buy The Boeing Company as part of our portfolio for now.
