$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

Earnings Season: Know When To Hold Em, Know When To Fold Em

It's earnings season! This is when corporations will report their quarterly results and usually issue future guidance for the company. This is also a period when stocks will often have big price swings after the earning announcement. For many traders and investors it can be an exciting time to trade, but danger lurks when market participants hold stocks into an earnings announcement.Just yesterday, I closed out a long trade in Dean Foods Co (NYSE:DF) at $14.99 a share. The reason I exited the…See More

BUY ALERT: This Is Where You Should Enter Home Depot (HD)...

Shares of Home Depot (HD) have been falling sharply in the last month. After topping out around $160.00, the stock is trading below $147.00. Part of the issue is that Amazon (AMZN) is encroaching on their business. After chatting with institutional investors, and analyzing it myself, it appears there is a strong buy trade level approaching. The level is found by connecting the pivot highs from October 2016, May 2017 and August 2017. After connecting these pivot highs and drawing a trend line…See More

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

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 a 30 P/E…See More

Alert: Topping Tail Signals Max Move Complete On Boeing Co

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…See More

Why I Bought 5,000 Shares Of Cara Therapeutics, Inc $CARA

I bought 5,000 shares of Cara Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ:CARA) at $12.32 just minutes ago. The reasoning is mostly technical, as the stock chart is hitting major technical support and is extremely oversold. In addition, at such levels and with promising drug candidates, it becomes a possible buyout target for a big player like Gildead Sciences (GILD) and others. In addition, the company is in the pain relief field. Any drug that is not an opioid can make a company extremely valuable considering…See More

Costco Plunges Lower, Know This Trade Level

Today, leading wholesale warehouse retailer Costco Wholesale Corp (NASDAQ:COST) is declining by $4.06 to $163.03 a share. The retail giant's stock price has been coming under pressure since early May when the shares traded as high as $183.18. Currently, COST stock is sitting right on its 200-day moving average so there is some near term daily chart support.Unfortunately, the better and stronger institutional support level for COST stock price will be around the $157.00 area. This is a spot on…See More

Cheniere Energy, Inc. Gets Slammed

This morning, crude oil is declining lower by nearly 4.0 percent. This is causing most energy stocks to sell off. Even energy stocks that are focused on natural gas are coming under severe pressure. Cheniere Energy, Inc.(NYSEMKT:LNG) is a company that is a leader in the liquified natural gas sector. This stock just made a recent high on the chart at $51.41 a share on May 25, 2017. Today, LNG stock is trading lower by $1.58 to $46.72 a share. Traders and investors should note that this stock…See More

Why This Market May Be Ready To Turn: Importance Of Major Even Numbers

The stock market has gone higher, consistently for years. Corrections have been non-existent, especially recently. Most investors think major even numbers have little to do with a top or a bottom on a stock, but I believe differently. Investors must realize that the stock market goes up and down on emotion. Essentially, stocks trade based on human psychology. This is actually a very key component to why even numbers are so key in tops and bottoms. The human condition associates even numbers…See More

Next Leg Lower On Chevron Corp $CVX About To Begin...

The stock chart of Chevron Corporation (NYSE:CVX) is about as bearish as any chart. With strong bearish consolidation, price hammering on support multiple times (weakening it) and the 20, 50 and 200 moving averages above current price, it all but promises a major drop in the coming days. Chevron Corporation is trading at $104.06 but will likely see a downside target of $97.50 within a month or so. This also insinuates that oil is set to fall further over the next month. Investors can be looking…See More

This Has Me Interested In Shorting Alibaba $BABA

Shares of Alibaba Group Holding Ltd (NYSE:BABA) jumped higher this past Friday morning after reporting solid earnings Thursday after-the-close. However, the party was short lived. After an initial pop higher, the stock reversed off all-time highs, putting in what is known in the technical analysis world as a topping tail. Topping tails are VERY bearish signals of potential long-term tops.Today, the stock is doing exactly what pro investors would hope, it is bouncing higher, retracing the tail.…See More

Why The Sharp Sell In J C Penney (JCP) May Have Nothing To Do With Earnings...

J C Penney Company Inc (NYSE:JCP) is flushing again today, following Friday's poor earnings report. The stock is down over 26% in the last week as all retailers are collapsing. Today, the stock hit a low of the day at $4.17 and I am here to say it may be a strong buy. In fact, I am here to say that it is possible that today's flush from $4.53 to $4.17 has nothing to do with poor earnings and is a result of certain funds not being able to hold stocks that are below $5.00.Please be aware, this is…See More

Archer Daniels Midland Co (NYSE:ADM) Plunges After Earnings, Is There A Trade?

This morning, leading agriculture company Archer Daniels Midland Co (NYSE:ADM) is plunging lower after reporting earnings. Today, the stock is falling by over 3.50 percent after reporting a Q1 sales miss. The next major support level for ADM stock will be much lower. Traders and investor will have to look at the $36.00 area for solid institutional chart support. Please understand, this stock is already severely oversold after today's decline so there could be minor bounces in the near term due…See More

Profit Analysis: This Is What Will Happen Next Week

Posted on November 11, 2012 at 11:40am 0 Comments

The markets took a wild ride last week. The S&P 500 surged early in the week on hopes of a business friendly, Romney victory only to get dashed when President Obama won his second term. The SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust (NYSEARCA:SPY) lost $3.40 on the week to close at $138.16. The key this week is to realize it is options expiration. This is where institutions will push the market in the opposite direction from the crowds. After the drop last week, many more…

Chart Ahead Of Apple Inc. (AAPL) Earnings Looks Fishy. Did They Have A Blowout Quarter?

Posted on January 25, 2010 at 2:33pm 0 Comments

The volatility last week was wild with earnings that just did not cut it. However, the real shock came when President Obama, due to a republican win in MA and the super majority gone in the senate, was forced to talk of tightening the noose on bank and the future risk they wish to take. Considering these banks like Goldman Sachs Grp. (NYSE: GS) made half their revenue from trading, a high risk venture, this put a major scare in Wall Street. It also sets up a possible war between Wall Street and… Continue

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,
elizabeth
