LinkedIn LNKD Triggers Turbo Breakout Reversal

Jun 2, 2015: 10:16 AM CST

LinkedIn (LNKD) just triggered a “Turbo Breakout” Impulse Buy set-up and we’re seeing additional upside action propel price higher.

Let’s see the intraday breakout and power-surge, along with the Reversal Arc we’re seeing on the Daily Chart.

Here’s the Intraday Arc Reversal – and Turbo Breakout – in LinkedIn (LNKD):

First, LinkedIn just topped the idea list from a custom scan – “Turbo Breaks to the Upside” from Trade-Ideas, a service of which I’m a proud affiliate and recommend, for active intraday traders.

While other names are firing off buy signals today under the same scan, I wanted to call your attention to this neat pattern and opportunity for LinkedIn.

We see a “Rounded Reversal” pattern off the $192.00 support level as a positive divergence formed under price.

For additional information, check out my prior post “A Quick Lesson in Trading Divergences off Support.”

We’re now seeing the Breakout – a “Turbo Breakout” according to Trade-ideas – in shares on a crest above $198’s high and the important $200 per share “Round Number” Reference Level.

With shares powering higher, let’s turn our attention to the Daily Chart for targets and trades:

We can see the “Rounded Reversal” or Arc Trendline pattern forming off the $190 level.

The power-rally up off support has been strong , triggering a breakout above both $200 (reference) and the falling 20 day EMA ($205.00).

This suggests that – if buyers continue their dominance over sellers – price can trade up through the “Open Air” pocket toward the $220.00 per share overhead target of the falling 50 day EMA.

Note the Red Sell Zone if instead – the alternate thesis triggers – price fails and returns back under $205.00 and then $200 for a Bull Trap sell-outcome.

For now, while we see buyers working their magic, price may offer additional bullish retracement or breakout trading opportunities for swing and especially intraday traders.

    I am very fearful of reversals, it can be seriously profitable but the risk that one is associated with can be huge, so even with trading on reversal we should keep tight money management. I am getting good chance of doing all type of trading thanks to OctaFX broker since they have got rebate service where we can make 15 dollars profits per lot size trade and even if I lose I am still able to get this rebate easily.
