Friday's Reversal Creates Buying Opportunities

|Includes: Sina Corporation (SINA)


Friday's action can be summed up in one picture:

Or maybe it should be "Houston We Have Lift Off"

But that should have come to no surprise as the one-minute chart of the S&P 500 told the story loud and clear -- DOUBLE BOTTOM. How many times have we talked about that change in trend pattern around here? How many times have we said the early indicator that the trend is about to change from down to up is the Double Bottom pattern? This is part of the reason why we use multiple time frames and frequency charts.

Notice how the markets instantly launched the moment it retested those lows?

And speaking of double bottoms, take a look at market leader BIDU in the same time frequency:

And on top of that, we see the same thing when looking at the Russell 2000:

The fact that you had the double bottom, positive divergence and many of the leaders kicking into gear Friday makes us want to continue to buy stocks that have formed bullish chart patterns such as the Pullback Off Highs pattern.


So now that the market has changed its trend from down to up, it's time to buy stocks that have formed bullish patterns.

The classic bullish pattern is what we call the Pullback Off Highs pattern.

As you can clearly see this issue is locked in an uptrend. However within that uptrend you can also see a trend within the overall trend that are mini downtrends. Those mini downtrends are commonly referred to as Pullbacks Off High's or POH's for short. Everyday we scan for issues that are in clearly defined uptrends that are Pulling back Off Highs. Every week our paid newsletter service puts out a list of names that are showing this pattern for you to be aware of IN ADVANCE.

Last week, we featured SINA on our watch list.

As you can see, we have an orderly pullback to chart support at the blue line and towards the 50-day moving average. The full stohcastics are very oversold. This has all of the elements for a change in trend move from down to up. And pow! Friday this issue triggered a long side trade by breaking above the pink line.
