  • General Electric: Regaining Iconic Stature [View article]
    After the last financial crisis that took GE down to $5/share this stock has rebounded nicely albeit taking it's time through a series of ebbs and flows. 8yr wkly http://bit.ly/I5o1z5

    I can't say it's overwhelmingly bullish, but it's not a bearish chart either. I guess if I had to offer a buy point on this chart I would look at the channel it's currently in and buy in near $15, because at least at that price you would know exactly where to put your stop - just under the lower trendline and sell on a close below that on a weekly basis.

  • Vivus' Qnexa Will Outpace Competition From Alli, Boost Stock [View article]
    VVUS has a very bullish pattern that is suggesting higher prices. 2 yr http://bit.ly/IWkvBg

    It is currently in a high tight flag which when you measure the pole of the flag and add it to the top of the flag to be conservative one could project a target of over $30 on this stock once it breaks out of the top of the flag as seen in the chart above. The trend is very bullish and one should play this stock accordingly.

  • 5 French Stocks On Sale For A Limited Time Only [View article]
    I don't care if FTE is the largest Telecommunications co in the world how can you recommend this a buy when it's trading near a decade low? This is a dog stock...period and there is no point trying to guess a bottom because you're throwing good money at a bad stock.

  • Analyst Errors Overstate LinkedIn's Valuation By Over 30% [View article]
    I think being short LNKD could be a good if the markets have topped as a double top could be in play.1yr chart http://bit.ly/HUdff3

    If the markets recover and push higher then I suspect LNKD to break through resistance based on the large cup with handle pattern forming. Earnings could be the catalyst next month either way.

  • What To Do With eBay Now [View article]
    Sell! Only because the general markets are in correction mode imo. Nice looking long term chart, but could easily get caught up in a downdraft if funds start selling stock.

    Actually there is one thing about this chart that bugs me is the RSI is failing to confirm. 5yr http://bit.ly/HMoUsG I can't quite put my finger on it but I think this will pull back to the $36 level, consolidate, and then one would have to see the nature of the pullback.

  • An Emerging Markets View Of Gold [View article]
    While long term Gold has a bullish chart I remain convinced we're still going to experience an uncomfortable pullback for those longs in this commodity. 5yr - http://bit.ly/IRUOX9

    My short term target is $1450-1500, with an outside chance we could see $1300 if gold's selloff accelerates as it often does when forming an intermediate bottom. My short term target is based off weekly fibs and previous breakouts and my longer term target is based on monthly 50 day moving average.

  • My Take On Kinder Morgan [View article]
    I like KMP but for technical reasons as it's been very strong over recent years but is due for a pullback. 5yr http://bit.ly/ISWop3

    I would get highly interested in this stock around the $75-77 area and may even buy the high end of that range as it's in a strong uptrending channel and there are multiple levels of support there, suggesting downside is limited.

  • Spectrum Will Sink Until 2013 [View article]
    wise advice - "If there's one thing that I highly advise against, it is investing in drugs that are not yet approved by the FDA."

    It's funny how this stock went from being such a strong performer to in the doghouse. The trend is broken in the short term and I just wouldn't trust this chart. When stocks flip from extremely bullish momenutm winners to selling off there is a good chance this will continue lower or at best move sideways.

  • Sunpeaks: Will This Hot Stock Go Up In Flames? [View article]
    What is evident when viewing this 60 min chart http://bit.ly/HWZqdA is that every dip is getting bought and there is a high demand for this stock. That is all you need to know to have the confidence to buy it.

    Now at what price should you enter? I would think on a pullback to the $130-1.40 level would offer a good opportunity to buy it while lowering the risk that you are buying at a top.

    The trend is strong in this and if you really wanted to own this I would wait for a mild correction. http://bit.ly/IO1GlH

  • Are We All Wrong About Salesforce.com? [View article]
    CRM has a very clearly defined bearish broadening top pattern forming. 5yr - http://bit.ly/IKnlQr

    Given how far this has risen over the last 6 months I expect this to fall with the rest of the market over the next couple of months. This is a difficult chart to analyze because long term it's bullish but it's action over the last 18 months has carved out a bearish topping pattern.

    My best guess would be to watch the monthly RSI and when it reaches the 40 level that would be a buying opportunity. That would probably translate into a stock price $120-130. I don't expect a crash in this stock, but more of a decline - sideways movement.

  • The Worrisome Amazon CEO Letter [View article]
    I agree with the author that shorting AMZN is the way to tradet this stock. Check out this 5yr chart http://bit.ly/HOIvbX and you'll clearly see the head/shoulder pattern that has severe implications to the downside.

    A rough calculation using the measurment pattern has this on it's way to $120 if it gets the downside break of the neckline.

  • Is Gold Ever An Investment? [View article]
    To say Gold is a pyramid of buyers is not accurate in the least. It's a wealth protection instrument if anything and a pretty good one over the last decade.

    The key is to learn how to time it just like any other investment. Currently we're in a neutral trend with the long term being very bullish but for the intermediate time frame we are in a downward channel. 4 yr - http://bit.ly/HxQayp

    I wouldn't be surprised to see gold fall further, maybe down to the $1500 level, which would be a great place to add or initiate a new position imo.

  • Wall Street Breakfast: Sony Doubles Projected Net Loss [View article]
    The SNE chart is such a great example of why you shouldn't be long stocks in severe downtrends. 5yr http://bit.ly/IoAzxn More times than not you'll find more bad news the lower the chart goes.

    It's to late to short now as it's right in the middle of support/resistance, but if you are long this stock you may want to take the loss and be done with it.

  • Sirius XM: Placing A Value On Spectrum [View article]
    Update to Sirius chart - http://bit.ly/HuS1zp

    We bounced right at the trendline today. A high volume sell off day would be at least over 100m to indicate massive selling.
