Is $JPM Completing The Pattern?

It's time to talk about something quite important. Something that can occur in a few months and can help us to deduce where the stock is going to aim.

Beforehand, as you can see, the price action is reaching the highest level of its history again. Now, focus on the "V" movement that $JPM has done twice, how it has been its behaviour after the event and the previous trend before all. The arrows indicate what I think it was the trend before, in and after the "V". Actually, that's what I keep in mind to predict the reaction in this third "V". In my point of view, there is a coincidence if we compare the last evidence of the pattern with the first one.

In this picture, we perceive that in a bullish trend, it seems to stay above the black arrow, creating in this way, a support line. Meanwhile in the next one, it was the reverse, a resistance line. But now it has come from a bullish trend again, so, must we think the last black arrow will play the role of support line?. We also have the cyclic lines, which show us that all the "V" have occured in the vertical lines and that is not a coincidence. The movements are similiar and the perdiod of times too.

Now you know the context, now you must know the performance of its sector:

Everything green for the financial sector.

I think all of us already know about $JPM but if someone doesn't, this is going to be useful.
