Short sellers get squeezed...
RIMM - set up a H&S pattern. Just when the 200-dayMA was proving resistance a late-day rally last week looks to have squeezed shorts. There was a hidden divergence buy signal here with a higher low in price and lower momentum low. Now that the 20-day is crossing the 200-day we either see a correction into 200MA support, or continuation until the 50-day comes into the 200-MA:
GLD - a H&S squeeze breakout
FCX - Shooting star today, but the squeeze was on a few days ago
GOOG - It had a chance to sell-off today, but closed higher and could force a squeeze above this resistance level:
V- a tight channel down, but 200-MA resistance overhead after this nice squeeze run
AAPL - looked like a H&S going in to last week. The momentum oscillator broke out of a momentum divergence, but an abandoned baby candle pattern off of the 20-dayMA is still causing some price drift.
AMZN - getting a boost here from this triangle breakout, which looked to me like an evening doji star off of the $180 rejection last week. A measured move out of this triangle isn't very large, so whichever way the momentum goes it can still show itself as divergent:
MON- looked like a good rejection on testing that breakdown zone, and looked to be following through....until it didn't, and shorts got squeezed again. The momentum indicator broke out with price.
MOS - This complex Head & Shoulders is either looking for it's squeeze, or may be wearing its weakness on its sleeve. Support from the 50-day, resistance from the 20-day and a lot of clear air below:
The setups I include on this blog are used in conjunction with the 3/10macd and the criteria I ascribe to it as a way to alert me to an existing condition of price. The key concept to take away from this blog is that I try to anticipate what will happen on the higher time frame by using a faster time frame to trigger the trade setup. I do not trade a "system" I use two indicators to clue me in to price conditions. Please read the Disclaimer located in the sidebar of this site.
