The latest financial results have caused a massive rebound in WOSG shares which were in a downward spiral. The shares of the British retailer of Swiss watches are currently up 14.8% this week. The positive price action follows months of downtrend.

Watches of Switzerland Share Price Forecast
It can be seen on the following LON: WOSG chart that the price action has formed a falling wedge pattern on the daily chart. The upper trendline of this wedge is acting as a resistance as the shares failed to break out above it yesterday.
A clear break out of this wedge could make Watches of Switzerland share price forecast very bullish. This will be a strong bullish reversal signal, and the bulls may target 850p level. However, the stock is yet to break out and is still trading within the pattern.
