Profiting On PENN - Market Analysis for Oct 18th, 2020
In his Trading Room this past Tuesday, Mike Paulenoff told members to expect more upside in PENN National Gaming (PENN).
With the stock trading at 67.16, Mike noted:
"My pattern work suggests strongly that PENN ended its most recent bout of weakness off the 75.24 high into today's low of 63.58, which is part of a larger-developing high-level bullish digestion period. As long as this AM's low at 63.58 remains intact, PENN's set-up points higher ... towards the 73.60 upper boundary line."
PENN proceeded to continue higher, reaching 72.26 intraday on Friday, up 7.6% in just 3 days after Mike's alert!
Where is PENN headed next? Here's what Mike told members on Friday:
"PENN technically is behaving just as we might expect from a bullish pattern after a gargantuan upmove from its March low at 3.75. My near-term pattern work argues that the high-level digestion period is at or near completion ahead of the initiation of a new upleg that projects to a target zone of 79 to 81. Only a failure of PENN to climb above 69.94 followed by a decline that breaks today's low at 65.71, and then continues lower to break 63.68, will wreck the promising set up."

More Top Calls From Mike
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.
That afternoon, with AAPL down 3% to 164.65, Mike Paulenoff posted a heads-up alert about AAPL to MPTrader members that called for continued downside in the most widely-followed name in the averages, writing:
AAPL has pressed beneath its prior pullback low at 166.
Mike Paulenoff called this past weeks sell-off in AAPL ... and the market in general.
On Thursday Aug 18, with AAPL at 173.84, Mike told his MPTrader members: I am in the camp expecting the latter downside scenario, notwithstanding The Streets newfound love affair with the company.
The next day, he wrote: AAPL is pressing on key initial support at 171.60/90, which if violated will point to 168-166 next [and] put downward pressure on SPX, SPY, ES.
He updated his downside target to 164.80-162.
