In short, the chart indicated that GOOG was on bar 7 of a weekly DeMark sell setup 9. Now there’s no guarantee that this will run to completion, but if it does, the stock will likely go higher and need a new high (above this week’s high) next week or the following week.
But that wasn’t all that caught my attention. I also saw a pretty clear risk-reward with looking at an hourly chart from the July lows. So I took a position in Google into the yesterday’s close on weakness and plan to add down to 635, with a stop below around 632. Update: I bought another tier on Tuesday morning / Final Update: I sold a tier on Wednesday strength and tightened stop.
Trade safe, and always define your risk.
