A Wednesday Market Pullback to Support Target

Oct 25, 2017: 11:59 AM CST

Surprisingly, the market can actually trade lower!

Today saw a successful retracement swing – finally – toward the first target at the rising 20 day EMA.

What’s the level and what’s the play from here?

In an uptrend, price typically swings up to a new high (toward the upper Bollinger Band) and then swings down to form a higher low as buyers step in (and bounce the market) up away from rising trendlines or moving averages.

This has been the case through most of 2017 except for October when price defied gravity in an extended upswing without a pullback.

TODAY we’re finally seeing that pullback to the safety zone and rising 20 day EMA target.

What’s the plan from here? Continue Reading…

Support Pivot in Play for Netflix NFLX Here

Oct 20, 2017: 2:01 PM CST

Netflix (NFLX) shares continue the uptrend in motion and we just saw a sharp pullback to a key support level.

What’s the level and what’s the play from here? 

Netflix NFLX

Shares continue the sequence of higher highs and higher lows in the context of rising moving averages, all of which define uptrends.

The goal then is to buy pullbacks (retracements) to the rising moving averages, Fibonacci Levels (advanced), or trendlines.

The most recent pullback took us just beneath $180 per share at the rising 50 day EMA (blue) ahead of the power-surge to new highs above $200 per share.

Here we have a smaller pullback to the rising 20 day EMA (green) and an initial push up away from it unfolding right now.

Continue focusing on the rising moving averages and the “liquidation pocket” (sell swing) beneath the 20 day EMA which opens an alternate thesis pathway back toward the rising 50 day EMA near $185.

Stay safe! Continue Reading…

Top Ten Bullish Trending Stocks Extended above the 200 Day SMA October 18

Oct 18, 2017: 1:10 PM CST

Did you know this market will NEVER go down again?

Ok that’s not actually true but let’s take a moment to scan for the Top Ten Stocks trading the largest percentage above their rising 200 day moving average.

Using this simple scan, you can identify strongly trending stocks and either trade bullish retracement strategies… or aggressive ‘fade’ strategies.

Here they are:

The Technology Sector dominates the top 10 list with 50% of companies making the cut.

Nvidia (NVDA) and Micron (MU) both are trading over 40% above their rising 200 day Simple Moving Averages, indicating a strong trend in motion.

The goal of this simple scan is to bring to your attention extended and bullishly trending stocks in the market.

Again, traders who enjoy pro-trending strategies (such as buying pullbacks/retracements or breakouts) can use this as a foundational watchlist to build future trades.

If you happen to be a contrarian, then these are the most “overextended” stocks that you can begin watching for a possible mean reversion or “pullback/reversal” situation.

It’s up to you how you choose to use this list but here they are – in our non-stop bull market. Continue Reading…

Peculiar Patterns on the Four Equity Futures October 17

Oct 17, 2017: 11:57 AM CST

Which of our four equity markets is the strongest/weakest and what patterns are emerging?

Let’s see them and plot the possible future course:

In the top left we see the @ES Emini forming a narrowing pattern or possible “Bearish Rising Wedge.”

However the strongest market – continually rising – is the @YM Dow followed by the @NQ NASDAQ.

These markets haven’t even pulled back more than a day since the late September bullish reversal.

We’re seeing a “Creeping” or “Oozing” Trend higher and higher and higher.

The big stand-out on the grid is the @TF or Russell 2000 which is showing clear relative weakness.

While the other three indexes are clearly rising and creeping, the Russell is simply retracing and trading lower. Continue Reading…
