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."

Eight weeks ago, Mike Paulenoff discussed the budding technical setup and upside breakout in CRWD (CrowdStrike Holdings) with our MPTraders members, writing:"CRWD has followed the bullish scenario we discussed in late August, and in fact, today (10/06/23) has thrust above 5 months of resistance to new recovery high territory at 176.32. Although my next optimal upside target zone is 190-200, the BIG picture setup points to 230-240 thereafter... Last is 174.86...
On Monday morning, November 13, 2023, a full 5 trading sessions before the approaching November Options Expiration (OPEX) (11/17/23), I posted my chart-based commentary for our members:SPY-- Considering that Friday is November Option Expiration, where are the "magnetized strike prices" as we start OPEX week? Based on my attached Hourly Chart, the magnetized strike price zone spans from 436 to 441. Should SPY take out the upside barrier of 441, then the follow-through outlier magnetized target could be as high as 450 before or on Friday.
On October 23, 2023, ten days before the November 1st FOMC meeting and policy statement, I posted the following commentary about the downward-spiraling TLT (20+ year T-bond ETF):My attached 4-hour Chart of TLT shows that the relentless and near-vertical downtrend that commenced at the beginning of August from around 100 hit a new long-term low at 81.92 this AM, positioning it in my intermediate-term optimal downside target zone from 80 to 82.
On the afternoon of September 25, Mike Paulenoff posted a warning signal to MPTraders members about the developing acute oversold condition in RTX (formerly Raytheon Technologies), writing:"RTX (formerly Raytheon Technologies) hit a new multi-month corrective low of 71.02, down 33% from the 4/10/23 post-pandemic High at 106.02. Although RTX has violated my optimal target window of 73-75, the stair-step corrective pattern off of the 4/19/23 high at 104.
On October 3, Mike Paulenoff posted the following "Heads Up!" about GLD (SPDR Gold Trust, ETF) for MPTrader members: "GLD has pressed to an important technical inflection window from 169.50 down to 166.30, from where I will be expecting corrective downside exhaustion off of the 5/04/23 high at 191.36, and new buying interest. From a nearer-term perspective, given the acute oversold but CONFIRMED Momentum reading of 17.16 an hour ago, my preferred scenario argues for another loop down that marginally violates today's low at 168.
