American Buying Power Degraded: Dollar Slammed By Trump Administration

The U.S. Dollar collapsed sharply today after Secretary of the Treasury Steven Mnuchin said the United States wanted a weaker currency. This statement comes after the U.S. Dollar has already fallen sharply since President Trump took office. While a weaker Dollar inflates asset prices which is likely the reason for the comment, it hurts lower and middle income Americans as buying power degrades and inflation jumps higher. Anyone who is not invested heavily in the stock market is seeing their…See More

iRobot Corp (IRBT) Rally Off Lows About To Slam Into Resistance

Shares of iRobot Corporation (NASDAQ:IRBT) have been surging off 52 week lows hit in December 2017. In December, this robotics company hit a low of $63 but is now approaching $90.00. Not only is it almost a 50% rally in a month, it is also a major resistance level (see the chart below). Expect a sharp pull back off the $90.50 pivot level. I will be looking to pick up some puts in this range or possibly short the stock. A pull back to $80 is likely.Gareth SolowayInTheMoneyStocksSee More

Epic Bear Flag On Toll Brothers (TOL) Signals Major Downside

Shares of Toll Brothers Inc (NYSE:TOL) are in trouble. The technical chart has one of the most powerful bear flag formations I have seen in the last year and it is likely near a major breakdown. The next wave of selling will be more powerful than the first, likely sinking Toll Brothers Inc as low as $40 before investors can start nibbling. The fundamental reason should be discussed as well. With the new tax plan in effect, home prices in many higher net worth states like California, New York…See More

Why I Am Considering A Short On Intel Corporation

Shares of Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC) have rocketed higher in recent months after earnings showed signs of life. However, the run may have just topped out. Note this trend line stretching back to 2012. I am starting to look more closely at a swing short trade on shares of Intel Corporation. The pull back target in 2018 would be $38.00. Part of me thinks it could pop to $50 into year end, but anywhere between $47.50 and $50.00 is a solid accumulation short zone.Gareth SolowayInTheMoneyStocksSee More

Shares Of Endo International $ENDP May Have 50% Upside, Note This Chart...

In recent weeks, pharma plays like Valeant Pharmaceuticals Intl (VRX) and Teva Pharmaceutical Industries (TEVA) have surged. Valeant is up almost 100% since October and Teva is up almost 50%. In other words, pharma has become a hot sector as Trump's corporate tax cuts near finalization. One pharma stock that is lagging but has a gorgeous bull flag is Endo International (NASDAQ:ENDP). I have placed this one on my watch list. Should the bull flag start to breakout with price pushing over $7.75,…See More

The Chart That Told Me To Short Costco Wholesale Corp (NASDAQ:COST)

Costco Wholesale Corporation (NASDAQ:COST) was upgraded yesterday. Mind you, this came after a run in the stock from $154 to $188. For some reason, an analyst thought it was the right time to upgrade Costco after a huge run like this (I don't get it). Anyways, the stock opened higher and then sold off. The reason for the reversal was because the stock slammed into a great resistance trend line (as seen in the chart below). This triggered my short. This is a no-brainer trade in my opinion as the…See More

Lockheed Martin (NYSE:LMT) Finally Pulls Back, Here's The Trade

Lockheed Martin Corporation (NYSE:LMT) is a leading defense and aerospace company. The stock has been one of the best performing equities over the past four years. Finally, LMT stock is pulling back over the past four trading sessions. The stock is now close to testing its 20-day moving average. Traders should note that this 20-day moving average is minor support so there is a good chance that the stock could move lower. The daily chart is signaling very solid support around the $305.00 level.…See More

Does This Stock Chart Predict Trouble For $WMT Earnings, See It Here...

Shares of Wal-Mart Stores Inc (NYSE:WMT) have been on a rampage of late. Since early October, the retailer has seen their stock price jump from the $77 range to a 52 week high of $91.98 on Monday, November 14th, 2017. This surge comes with almost all other retailers collapsing lower. Many retailers like Macy's and J C Penny are down more than 50% in recent months. So is this stock price surge for real? The stock chart says 'NO'. While Wal-Mart Stores Inc tagged a new 52 week high on Monday, it…See More

This Las Vegas Sands Level Is A Good Bet

This morning, leading casino and resort stock, Las Vegas Sands Corp (NYSE:LVS), is declining lower by 0.79 to $60.93 a share. Last week, the casino giant reported earnings and the stock declined lower on the news. Traders should note that LVS stock is now trading below the important 50-day moving average. Anytime a stock trades below its 50-day moving average it is often viewed as a weak technical position for the equity. Traders must now watch the $56.75 level for major chart support. This is…See More

Nasty Bear Flag Alert On $OLED: Here Is The Trade...

Shares of Universal Display Corporation (NASDAQ:OLED) have one of the tightest, nastiest bear flag formations I have seen. There are high odds of this stock taking a major leg lower in the coming weeks. The first target is $108 and the second target is $90. The key here is the recent news from just days ago that many Asian companies are over-producing OLED displays. Asia and specifically China have a history of overproducing things and dumping them on the overall market, killing margins. This…See More

$AAPL Falls Sharply, Here Is The Price To Buy It!

Shares of Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) fell sharply on Wednesday, as more and more analysts are questioning if the iPhone X is good enough to cause a super-cycle upgrade. Coming off all-time highs, expectations had been built into Apple Inc. of a massive upgrade cycle. This worry will continue as the latest iPhone is set to be delayed until early 2018. This means months of question marks. I expect Apple Inc. to continue its decline until it hits major support at $142.00. This $142 level represents…See More

Wells Fargo & Co(NYSE:WFC) Keeps Falling, Where's The Bid?

As you all know, Wells Fargo & Co(NYSE:WFC) stock has been declining for quite some time now. The company was caught in a bogus account scandal that has resulted in numerous fines and congressional investigations. These problems at the bank are still lingering, but history suggests that Wells Fargo & Co will resolve these issues eventually. Recently, the stock topped out on June 29th at $56.60 a share. Since that high pivot in the stock the price has now declined to $50.97 a share. The…See More

Why The S&P 500 Sell-Off Today May Be Different

The S&P 500 fell 1.5% today. In all fairness, we have seen one-day sharp drops in the market many times before. Every past drop has been an amazing buying opportunity. However, today's sharp decline is very different. Let me go over the reasons.1. Volume was big. This implies institutional investors and hedge funds were selling.2. This is the first drop in recent history that has taken out a previous drops low. This means on a technical basis, there is a lower-low in place, a bearish…See More

Don't Follow the Crowd: VIX Call Options Go Up In Smoke

Just think about how many traders and investors bought call options in the popular iPath S&P 500 VIX Short Term Futures TM ETN(NYSEARCA:VXX) last week when the market sold off. The problem is that many retail traders may have bought put options that expire this coming Friday. As you know, volatility is crumbling today falling by nearly 20.0 percent.Traders and investors should note that the institutional investors play a lot of games with individual equities ahead of options expiration.…See More

$CSX Corp (CSX) Falls On Earnings, Here Is The Downside Target Price...

Posted on July 19, 2017 at 3:21pm 0 Comments

Shares of CSX Corporation (NASDAQ:CSX) fell after the transport stock reported earnings that beat Wall Street expectations. Does it sound weird, it is falling on an earnings beat? Upon a closer look, some accounting maneuvers allowed for that beat. If you back out those shady dealings, CSX Corporation actually missed earnings. This explains why it is falling. Being a technical chart trader, I have been bearish on CSX Corporation. I just cannot make sense of a railroad stock trading at…

Alert: Topping Tail Signals Max Move Complete On Boeing Co

Posted on July 13, 2017 at 9:49am 0 Comments

Shares of Boeing Co (NYSE:BA) surged in early trading, hitting new all-time highs at $208.61. However, the rally faded as the day dragged on with the stock giving back all the gains and closing flat at $206.44. This reversal from all-time highs increases the odds exponentially that a top is in on the aerospace company. Boeing Co has an official topping tail in place and should now start selling lower. The next wave of selling will take the stock to the daily 50 moving average, which also…

Good day,
How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very important to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site. Could you please get back to me on my private email(elizabethleveques@mail.com) for the full details?
Have a nice day and God bless you,
