On June 23rd, Mike Paulenoff posted a "heads-up" commentary about AMD for MPTrader members:
"AMD Bottom Line: While my near-term pattern work cannot rule out one more new pullback low in the vicinity of 102-105 to complete the correction off of the 133.74 high on 6/13, the 20% decline is very near completion ahead of another upleg that should propel AMD to my next optimal target zone derived from the upside breakout from the huge multi-month base-accumulation period that projects next to 148-152... Last is 110.26..."
Mike continued to guide members through multiple AMD updates, and on July 10th wrote:
"In the next book I write about technical analysis, I will use my attached 4-Hour Chart as an example of a textbook Inverse Head & Shoulders formation... that remains incomplete on the upside... as long as any forthcoming weakness is contained above the 6/27/23 pullback low at 105.55.
"To trigger upside traction, AMD needs to climb and sustain above 117.65/70. At the moment, although my nearest-term work is bullish above 105.55, as long as AMD is trading below 117.65/70 I cannot rule out a retest of the June low-zone prior to my expectation of the initiation of a new, powerful upleg... Last is 113.01..."
Then last Friday, July 14th, Mike again alerted MPTraders to the price action in AMD:
"AMD is following our bullish technical script as it accelerates to the upside after completing a meaningful pullback to its multi-month upside breakout zone (see my attached Chart)... Last is 119.82..."
AMD hit an intraday high at 122.12, a full 10.8% above Mike's June 23rd post to MPTrader members, and 15.7% above the major corrective low of 105.55 established on June 27th. After hitting the 122.12 high -- just beneath Mike's second key near-term resistance zone as shown on the chart -- AMD gave up most of its intraday gains (5%) late in Friday's session.
Is the up-move over? What's next for AMD?

Nine weeks ago, on December 13, Mike Paulenoff responded to an MPTrader member's inquiry about the relatively newly IPO'd restaurant group CAVA (CAVA Group), writing:Fellow member "Blue" asked for a "read" on CAVA, but this is an interesting name in the restaurant group that I think warrants a more extensive chart post for anyone looking to diversify into a consumer-sensitive, budding chain of Mediterranean cuisine fast-food locations along the lines of the Chipotle (CMG) model...
This past Monday (Feb 5), one of our MPTrader members inquired about Disney (DIS): "Is Mickey and the gang making a comeback?" Our response: "Technically, the answer is Yes! We can make a compelling argument that DIS has carved-out a 9-month rounded base formation (Inverse Head Shoulders, anyone?) that for the last several days has been digesting its January gains from 88.69 to 97.93 perhaps ahead of Wednesday's (12/07/24) catalyst: Quarterly Earnings.
Way back on October 27, 2022— 1 year, 4 months ago, this is what I posted about SHOP (Shopify) to the MPTrader member discussion room:My attached BIG Picture Daily Chart shows the relentless bear phase that gripped the stock from its November 2021 ATH at 176.29 to the October 13, 2022 low at 23.63, amounting to an 86.5% decline in the value of the stock during the past year! That said, my pattern and momentum work argue strongly that SHOP established a very significant near and intermediate-term low at 23.
During the pre-market hours on Monday January 8, less than 48 hours after a new Alaska Airlines Boeing 737 Max-9 aircraft experienced a potentially catastrophic structural mid-air "event" that subsequently compelled the FAA to ground all Boeing 737 Max 9 jets, Mike Paulenoff posted the following technical commentary for MPTrader members:"BA (Boeing)... has to deal with yet another issue with its 737 Max 9 airliner, which experienced a potentially tragic physical malfunction on an Alaska Airlines flight Friday night.
On the morning of January 9, 2024, with IWM (Small Cap Russell 2000 ETF) trading at 194.72, this is what I discussed with MPTrader Members:... If IWM cooperates and climbs into the 199.50-201.50 target zone, I am expecting the index to run out of gas and roll over into a secondary corrective down leg that retests and breaks below 190.57, pressing into the 186.50-188.50 target zone to complete the larger correction off of the 12/28/23 high at 205.03...
