XLK/XLP update – Ratio Analysis and the power of waiting

last week, blogged about parabolic arcs and showed how we could use geometry to POTENTIALLY (the only operative word in investing) to look for inflection points. if your new to the blog, you’ll find a chart that has been replicated a couple times over past couple weeks /months for an area or zone of resistance. in fact, here’s a print to screen where JC (www.allstarcharts.com) and I were talking about this level … we discussed it ramifications to manage risk. this level was known 4-6 weeks ago and was discussed about it being respected. the past couple days market action can tell you why this was a smart move …

if this zone held, then technology would lose some steam (so to speak) and rotation into less volatile names (staples) would occur. at my last count we had 6 different projection techniques and math coming into this area.

when it broke above it – on a daily basis – I was somewhat surprised but it’s all probability, right? so, I blogged to wait for an open and a close above our targeted area/zone. we DID NOT get an open and a close above our area so the resistance was still on .. that is what I mean waiting for a signal reversal.

signal reversal candle (bullish) = the ‘high’ of the ‘low’ candle is taken out on close

signal reversal candle (bearish) – the ‘low’ of the ‘high’ candles is taken out on close.

when we come up w/ levels, waiting for an open/close above or below a certain level is the smartest way to play it. this is what was recommended … we have a LONG time before the month ends (for the monthly candle) but we can monitor via weekly and daily …

no need to rehash old news .. the zone has been hit. you read the blog – to find out where it COULD (there’s that probability connotation again) go …

using the basics, for now, I have used measured move corrections (blue and orange arrows) and rudimentary retracement techniques to come up w/ an initial set of targets.

folks, this might not even be the top to do all this work … it COULD GET ALL REVERSED TOMORROW.

keep the erasers and pencils ready, this is going to get interesting …

Facebook – strong resistance hit

we have 4 aspects of FB that show the ATH to be significant resistance.

two 1.618 extensions, key trend line resistance and a projection from the ATL and while it exceeded .618ab*cd you can see as discussed in this blog it did hit the .68179ab*cd (musical note ratio) so we can see why this level/area was big resistance. I would watch for a close below (weekly close) 250 for a significant pullback to be in place.

the FANG GANG- where are we now

11/5/2016 – I really enjoying blogging for Andy @seeitmarket.  he’s such a great dude, great family and he’s created one of the best resources for quality and professional research.  Over the past year or so (yes, year or so) he’s given me the opportunity to blog/write for his site.  Every once in a while I’ll text him and say “what do you want” and he’ll give me some ideas.  Over a year ago he told me to start watching the FANG gang. So, I did …

F- Facebook

A – Amazon, Apple (you pick)

N- Netflix

G- Google

over the past couple months, these stocks have been responsible for 25% of the NASDAQ’s gain.  That’s a heck of a lot of exposure ….but, in the end, the geometry told the story.  here’s the story …

what the articles show is these stocks are hitting / have hit MAJOR targets and, well, believe it or not could be in for some very very turbulent times in the coming weeks/months.

Stay tuned, but if history is any guide, one would expect some clear leadership from these names but they have hit major patterns and square outs SO … not sure what the fundamentals are telling us but based on this past weeks action they appear to respecting the geometry/vibration/patterns present based, simply, on numbers and math and music and blah blah blah.

stay tuned and let me know if you have any questions.

Navy over Notre Dame – woot woot.
