The monthly long-term chart for Copart shows a strong uptrend for close to 5 years, since about 2016. While this timeframe trend has been upward, there was a significant pullback in February and March 2020 when the price fell by more than 45% and broke the bottom trend line. Since then, the price has bounced back up and has recently found support at the $104 level. This level is an important one as it was previously resistant and is now acting as a support. The following price target looks likely to be $128. A stop-loss can be placed at $102, the low of the previous month’s candle.
