Have You Ridden TSLA HIgher?
This past Wednesday morning, just hours after TSLA announced a 5 for 1 stock split, and with TSLA trading at $1448, Mike Paulenoff wrote in his live Trading Room:
"All of the action off of the 7/13 all time high at 1794.99 represents EITHER a high level bullish digestion period ahead of another upleg OR a distribution top in the making. As long as any weakness in TSLA is contained above $1365-$1370, we have to err on the side on upside continuation that projects to $1805-$1825 next."
Mike added, "On August 21st, TSLA will split 5 for 1, which at current prices makes the stock worth about $290, which I have to think is a VERY appealing prospect for anyone who missed its meteoric price move into an elite price zone."
TSLA proceeded to climb for the remainder of the week to a Friday high at $1668.80, a full 15% above Mike's Wednesday morning analysis and commentary.

More Top Calls From Mike
Last Friday afternoon (Sep 30), Mike Paulenoff ended his Gold Miner alert to MPTrader members with the following parting comment:
Just maybe the precious metals complex is approaching a perfect storm-- a weakening US Dollar, stubborn inflation, vicious and increasingly dangerous geopolitics et al...
Indeed, the Gold Miners ETF GDX outperformed the benchmark SPY ETF for the first time in months. After pressing to a low at 23.
This past Monday September 19, Mike Paulenoff alerted MPTrader members to an emerging setup in Raytheon Technologies (RTX), noting:
One of the recurring themes I read about that threads through coverage of the Russian-Ukraine conflict is that the vast amount of materiel sent to Ukraine from NATO countries to help Zelensky and his army fight Russia is older equipment and weaponry that sooner than later will have to be replaced by the donating countries.
On the afternoon of September 12, the day before the consequential August CPI report was released, Mike Paulenoff alerted MPTrader members to a key inflection point in the QQQ, writing:
The QQQ is strong ... heading towards a confrontation with its key resistance zone from 312.80 to 316.15 where my work expects QQQ behavior to inform us about the true underlying dominant trend-- to the upside in an extension of the June-August advance, or to the downside in extension and completion of the Aug-Sep.
On August 8, Mike Paulenoff was asked for chart analysis on CHPT by an MPTrader member.
Before the opening bell, Mike responded with the following chart-based commentary:
CHPT (ChargePoint Holdings)is getting a lift from the so-calledInflation Reduction Actmostly because of the feel-good reaction to the $7,500 electric vehicle tax credit (if you can afford to buy an EV in the first place) as well as earmarked funds supposedly heading for building out charging station infrastructure.
On Friday morning August 26, Jay Powell delivered a very brief, but considerably more hawkish-than-expected Jackson Hole speech that for all intents and purposes ended and reversed the 19% recovery rally advance in the SP.
