A stock I recently highlighted on Twitter has turned into a huge winner. Here is my original tweet on NOAH – Noah Holdings an asset management service company for wealthy clients:
For those of you who can’t see the chart, here it is. Click on the NOAH chart to enlarge:
The stock did behave exactly as I expected. The very bullish moving average expansion was just starting. Price was very close to its ATH (all time high). That’s precisely when the ATH started to act as a magnet attracting price. Then the stop buy order cluster was triggered. That is because a lot of technical traders and momentum traders simply buy when a stock is able to print a new ATH. The strength of NOAH shouldn’t come as a surprise.
The charts of various ETFs like CAF, PEK, ASHR, FXI were Telegraphing the bullish move in China way in advance. My tweet on ASHR was pretty timely, ASHR started its huge run the very next day:
If you can’t see the chart you need to read the post on my website or go to my twitter feed.
What we are seeing now with NOAH is the first pullback after the run-up. Here’s the current chart taking into account the most recent development. Click on the NOAH chart to enlarge:
As I outlined in my chart annotations, most of the time this is how I look at bullish charts. If a chart has run up, is strongly trending and is in the process of pulling back I do the following. I draw 2 bullish scenarios into the chart:
- The slightly less bullish flag pattern in grey and
- The slightly more bullish ascending triangle scenario drawn in blue.
As soon as the stock can reclaim the upper trend line of the flag pattern drawn in grey it means the very bullish ascending triangle is the pattern in play. That’s when I become extremely bullish as I know odds I am holding a winner are extremely high.
Conclusion: It all comes down to the following: When you outline a bullish scenario road map and the stock acts exactly as you expect it to act, that’s when you should be and stay bullish. Then simply give the stock room to develop into an even bigger winner.
