Equity Oracle: 06/20/14

This stock has been in a narrow trading range for about three months now. The price action is showing signs of a potential break out but we have to be patient. Our goal is to wait for a green candle before we buy it and take a ride. Once you have bought the stock, it’s important for you […]

Equity Oracle: 06/13/14

I like trading the cheap stocks when the market is in an overextended condition. Should the markets go through a corrective move to the downside, like I expect it will, the cheaper stocks tend to hold well in the storm. Last year when we traded this stock we had a good return and I’m expecting the same to happen […]

On May 9th an alert went out to buy the January 32 calls for 7.75. From there, the stock broke out of the near team resistance area, retested the newly established role-reversal, and rallied to our target price. The stock moved up as planned, but the price of the calls did not move all that much. The […]

It’s been a couple of years since we last traded AT&T but today we are seeing a sign that tells us we should get back into this position. As you can see from the chart, above, the stock is showing a candle pattern today. On top of that, the stock is trading just above the 200-day moving average […]

As you will see from the video I’ve put together, Nextera has been in a well-defined upward trend for the past 3 years with little sign of the trend weakening. This, along with the fact that the stock has bounced off of a key role reversal line, tells us that it’s safe enough to take a long position […]

Last Wednesday, May 21st, an alert went out on Home Depot to buy the January 2016 65 Calls for $15.40. There was a bullish engulfing pattern at the time and shortly after the alert went out the stock rallied. We are up about $2 on the calls and although it’s tempting to take a profit, I think it’s […]

It’s been a long time since we last traded JC Penny (JCP) but it’s one I never took off of my watch list. One of the most important reasons for having a watch list is because stocks tend to cycle. If you have a list of stocks that you are familiar with, eventually those stocks will give off […]

It’s not often where we see a bullish engulfing pattern as a stock is breaking above the 200-day moving average, which is why I feel so good about this long call position. The short-term target area is close enough for us to capture a profit on these calls and there is enough liquidity in the front month calls […]

We’ve successfully traded Highpower International, Inc. (Ticker: HPJ) in the past and had great results. Once again the stock is giving us a buy signal as it bounces off the 200-day moving average. The secondary confirmation that shows us the buyers are coming in is through the strong green candle as it moves up and away from a well-established […]
