Tracking CRM's Price Path

On Thursday of this past week, Mike Paulenoff alerted MPTrader members of a long set-up in CRM (salesforce.com), writing:
"After making yet another new multi-month corrective low at 212.98 last Friday, CRM has turned up and has climbed above initial resistance at 219.50-220.00, which triggered an initial 'long alert' in my work."
Mike added: "My work argues that CRM has turned up, and has triggered a preliminary buy signal. Only a sharp downside reversal that violates the Jan 15th intraday low at 212.98 will invalidate the signal."
Mike had been tracking CRM in the MPTrader Trading Room for the past 7 weeks, as it progressed towards completion of a major correction.
On Friday morning, he followed up, noting: "CRM is following my preferred technical price path, turning up from last Friday's low at 212.98 towards a challenge of 223-225, which if (when?) hurdled, will confirm the conclusion of the entire Sep-Jan correction (284.87 to 212.98), and the initiation of a potentially very powerful new upleg."
As it turned out, Goldman Sachs on Friday upgraded CRM to a "Buy," with a target orice of $315, and the stock reached an intraday high of 227.79 before closing at 225.77.
Is CRM poised for upside continuation after a completed multi-month correction?

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...
