Key medium term breakout area for TSX 60

The TSX 60 index may have some upside in its future if it can make it above a key trend line. This trend line connects the highs from July 25 to the pivot high from August 17, as outlined in the chart below.

A break of this trend line could lead to medium term upside

Since Wednesday of last week, the TSX 60 index has been consolidating sideways underneath this trend line. This resulting bullish flag pattern means that the trend line should provide only minimum resistance.

A breakout above this trend line would be significant as this is a medium term 60 minute chart. I'll be looking to go long here for 1-3 days depending on how fast the price moves up. First resistance on any such breakout will be at the 200 moving average and the gap fill at 795. Secondary resistance will be at the pivot top at 804. A close back below the blue trend line triggers a stop out.

The ETF is a good way to play this breakout, as well as individual stocks. If I find any stocks with supporting bullish patterns I'll post them here.
