Chartology: Fusion-io (FIO) Drop May Offer Trading Opportunity

Stock Charts, See It Market, seeitmarketBy Andrew Nyquist
A nice coiled base and a big earnings report propelled Fusion-io (FIO) significantly higher in August, and on through early October. In fact, the stock left such a huge gap after their last earnings report that many active investors were left wondering if it would offer such prices again. Well, gaps tend to be magnetic and patience is a virtue.

FIO has pulled back from a high of over 32 a couple weeks ago to its current price below 28. In the chart below, the stock is nearing important upper gap support and today will record bar 8 of a daily DeMark buy setup 9. Now this doesn’t necessarily offer a “lasting” bottom; I use these daily setups for trading ideas. And in this case, I will watch FIO for lower prices today and Monday, looking for a bargain and possible bounce higher next week.

Be aware that FIO reports earnings after the close on Wednesday, October 24th, so plan accordingly. I do not tend to trade earnings reports (or other binary events), so IF I initiate a trade, I will likely sell or lighten up prior to. I do not have a current position in FIO.

Trade safe, trade disciplined.
