On January 24, we alerted MPTrader members to an opportunistic technical setup in NVDA, writing:
"NVDA Bottom Line: When I zoom out for a view of all of the price action for the past 8 months, I can make a compelling case that a very powerful base-accumulation period and pattern have developed that is putting intense upward pressure on the 198-200 multi-month resistance-upside breakout zone that if hurdled, will trigger an intermediate-term projection to at least 218-224, and an outlier upside target zone closer to 280. As long as any forthcoming weakness is contained by support lodged from 178 down to 167.30, NVDA deserves the benefit of the doubt on the upside for the next 1 to 3 months... Last is 189.83."
Fast-forward 8 weeks to last week's trading where NVDA hit a high of 275.89, up 155% from its October 2022 major corrective low at 108.13, and up 45% from where it was trading when we initially alerted MPTrader members!
What's next for NVDA? As much as I would like to tell members that NVDA still has much higher to climb, my current read on the technical and fundamental situation indicates that in the nearer-term timeframe, NVDA is showing signs of technical stress that I usually associate with approaching upside exhaustion ahead of a meaningful pullback.
In addition, NVDA recently has been the recipient of a lot of positive press and Wall Street hype about its central chip design and production position uniquely suited to supply the forthcoming explosion in Artificial Intelligence (AI) applications. That said, based on our current setup work, while NVDA is a long-term "hold," we are very cautious near term and look for a substantial bout of profit-taking weakness (20% plus) before another sustained up-leg is likely to emerge.

On May 22, we introduced a budding bullish technical setup in RIG (TransOcean Ltd) to MPTrader members, noting:"RIG (TransOcean) is up 7% today, a thrust that immensely improves the technical position of the stock. RIG exhibits an extremely powerful near and intermediate-term setup that points to a next upside target zone of 6.80 to 7.10, but when overlaid on my attached Daily Chart, projects to 8.50... last is 6.36.
Well before the Artificial Intelligence (AI) hysteria was unleashed this past Thursday by the shockingly powerful earnings report from Nvidia (NVDA) that reset expectations for the growth and revenue potential of AI, our technical pattern analysis of MRVL provided an early heads-up for MPTrader members.
Just after the start of the New Year, on January 9, Mike Paulenoff posted the following missive to MPTrader members about EWJ (Japanese Country Fund ETF):In my reading and research this weekend, my eyebrows did a bit of a backward roll when I saw the budding technical setup in EWJ.
On April 21, AAPL climbed to a new 8-month recovery high of 168.16, representing a 35% gain from the January 2023 low. We alerted MPTrader members to the new high in AAPL, but attached a yellow caution flag to the update:"AAPL continues to intrigue me technically because the stock hit a new multi-month recovery high at 168.16 on Wednesday -- 35% above its Jan 3rd low, but stalled right at its 15-month resistance line that cuts across the price axis in the vicinity of 168.
On March 20, I posted the following technical alert to MPTrader members:"FCX (Freeport-McMoRan)-- Technically, let's notice that FCX appears to be in the U-Turn phase after the completion of a 7-week 25% corrective period that successfully tested the 200 DMA last week. If the commodity complex has fully corrected its post-pandemic-inflationary spiral bull phase (think Crude Oil, down 46% from its 2022 highs), then FCX with its concentration of Copper, Gold, Silver, and Oil is poised for a resurgence of strength...
