Last month, with the stock trading at $13.78, I wrote a post highlighting how oversold Ford stock price was and why investors should have it on their watch list. Here’s an excerpt from that post: So what makes this an interesting setup? Well, a

Afterward, he became a line cook for Jeremiah at Stars in San Francisco.[16] There, Ells observed the popularity of

Is Netflix Stock (NFLX) Ready To Explode Again?

Netflix stock has long been a favorite with option traders due to its high stock price, high implied volatility and explosive stock moves. But following the severe selloff in mid-October, Netflix (NFLX) has been very subdued. Since October 23rd, Netflix stock as traded in a very tight range between $374.60 and $395.52.

Is Natural Gas Setting Up For A Tradable Rally?

Natural Gas has gotten plenty of attention with volatile moves during the latest polar vortex. Prices are down 12% this week as of this writing. Is the rally over?

Traders: Did The Euro Just Bottom?

The Euro has been hit hard and negative sentiment is reaching an extreme. A couple weeks ago we posted how PRICE = TIME and the Euro hit the target exactly.  That being said, the FORM and PROPORTION just didn’t look correct from the perspective of “is this a tradable bottom.” So, from 1.2500 we rallied in 3 waves and, after that, the picture became clear that we needed “one more wave”

Twitter Upgraded To Overweight, Stock Battles Resistance

Earlier today, JP Morgan analyst Doug Anmuth upgraded Twitter (TWTR) to an overweight rating, raising his price target to $64/share. This was enough to buoy the stock price amidst a sea of red in the Tech sector. But perhaps even more important than the Twitter upgrade this morning is the developing technical setup on the TWTR stock chart. The move higher this morning saw the stock fall short of eclipsing a critical resistance level
