Anticipating CRM's Sell-Off

After Salesforce.com (CRM)'s earnings report late Tuesday, Mike Paulenoff cautioned MPTrader members about the stock, noting:
 
"CRM beat The Street on Earnings, Revenues, and Raised Guidance, BUT... confirmed buying Slack (WORK) for $27.7 Billion, which continues to give some investors a bit of indigestion. CRM is 4% lower from the 4 PM ET close, pressing down to 230.60, which we see on my attached chart is nearing a full-fledged test of the technically critical 10/30 low at 228.66. The 10/30 low MUST contain any additional weakness to avert triggering a long liquidation event that sends CRM towards 200-190 next."
 
The stock, which was at 232.75 at the time, went on to break that critical 10/30 pivot low  the very next morning -- which, just as Mike had warned, triggered long liquidation that spiked the stock through Mike's next immediate downside target of 220 to a post-earnings low of 215.63.
 
Mike continued to monitor the stock closely for MPTrader members through the remainder of the week, as CRM attempted to rally above 228-229 but failed to sustain the strength, closing the week at 225.51.
