Blackberry Failure

Blackberry is a textbook example of why you have to wait for a breakout and not to jump in before the pattern is completed. Earlier post is over here . Although its technical still a valid H&S Bottom its a loooong way now from the neck at 18.32

What is Blackberry hiding?

After forming a 5-month Inv H&S Bottom last year with a successful breakout in November, Blackberry has more than doubled in value. Now, on a weekly chart, the stock has formed a possible 18-month Inv H&S with a neckline at 18.32. Notice that the current right shoulder has coiled into a wedge. A break out of the wedge and a close above 16.60ish will be an initial signal for more upside, whereas a clearance of the neckline will have a target of $30.

AIG, left alone on an island

AIG has formed a 7-week island top. The pattern is complete as long as it closes below 43.25.

Follow Up On Oil Chart

After the breakout (which i bought & got stopped out at a small loss) oil formed a 4-day island reversal and pushed down back into the pattern. This is bearish news for the bulls. Further weakness will be indicated by a close below the right Inverse H&S signaling a Inv H&S failure. My recommendation is to stay away from Oil until it breaks 30.79 on USO ETF shown below.

Can Platinum Really Drop 30%?

Platinum’s chart looks extremely bearish. As shown below on the weekly chart it has formed a 3.5-years H&S Top. Furthermore, the right shoulder formed a 1.5 years consolidation rectangle and the magical 1400 zone, 1,375 to be exact has been able to support the metal until now…. If this zone is pierced decisively LOOK OUT BELOW !!! this plunge will be nothing compared to Gold’s recent decline and target will be 1,000….at least

Trade Setups For After The FED

AutoDesk (ADSK) formed a not so perfect 6-months H&S Top which has broken neck @ 35.51. The pattern has retested the pattern and is back below the neck again. The stock is weak compared to the overall market. On a weekly basis the stock has completed a 5 point touch triangle that should be resolved soon.

American Vanguard Corp (AVD) formed a triangle top which has not yet broken down…yet. Keep a close eye at 27.8 level.

Golden Minerals Co (AUMN) has been trading in a tight range rectangle since mid April. The last couple of days showed volume increasing at the upper resistance and yesterday price pierced the rectangle on the upside but closed inside. A decisive close above the 1.95 completes the pattern heading to the upside. This may be a bottom.

Fastenal (FAST) completed a double top formation with the second top exhibiting a sloping H&S. In addition to a pick up in volume, the neck has been broken by 0.10, which is not that decisive. Anyways, watch it closely for an implied target of 41.
