Goldman Sachs (GS)
The Goldman Sachs Group, Inc. is global investment banking, securities and investment management firm that provides a wide range of financial services to a substantial and diversified client base that includes corporations, financial institutions, governments and high-net-worth individuals.
The chart below shows it’s share price over the past seven months. The downtrend was broken in mid June with prices consolidating above the 200 day moving average. Over the past fortnight the price has retraced to form a bullish wedge. Yesterday saw a bullish candle breakout from the wedge pattern. This is my signal to enter a long position trade.
On this setup I will look to go long at a price of $168.00 with a stop-loss under the wedge low of $166.00. My initial target will be the resistance high from March of $175.00.

ASX Traders Report: OZ Minerals (OZL)
OZ Minerals Limited (OZL) is an Australian based mining company with a focus on copper. OZL owns and operates the Prominent copper-gold mine and the Carrapateena copper-gold mines in South Australia.
The daily chart below shows signs of the share price rebounding after an extended down trend. The price has formed a bottom reversal inverse head and shoulders pattern .The share price has been limited by resistance of $4.00 which has been tested on three occasions over the past three months. Tuesday saw a breakout above the resistance level with the share price closing at $4.08.
The other significant thing that happened was the price was able to close above the long term 200 day moving average which has started to move sideways after a long period of downward movement.
I have this on my watch list for a possible long position trade and will be interested to see how the price behaves from here. I will be looking for confirmation that the resistance breakout is sustained with the 200 day moving average providing support now that it has broken to the upside.
Wall Street Traders Report May 13th
It was all positive on Wall Street overnight with the Dow Jones Industrial Average hitting an intra-day all time high of 16,704 points. At the close of trading the Dow Jones had increased 0.68% (112 points) to close at 16,695 and breakout above December resistance which it had attempted to surpass over the past few months without success. Momentum could now continue to push the index forward to resume it’s up-trend so traders can look for opportunities in stocks that make up the Dow Jones Index. I was able to identify two such shares in Catepillar Inc and General Electric that show positive technical setup’s for long position trades.
Catepillar Inc (CAT)
Caterpillar Inc. (Caterpillar) is a manufacturer of construction and mining equipment, diesel and natural gas engines, industrial gas turbines and diesel-electric locomotives. The stock price is in an up-trend with yesterday’s trading showing a triangle breakout. I will wait for confirmation of the breakout today and look to place an order to buy if the price can open above yesterdays low. The up-sloping trend line should offer support and seems a logical place for a stop-loss.
General Electric (GE)
General Electric Company (GE) is a diversified technology and financial services company. The products and services of the Company range from aircraft engines, power generation, water processing, and household appliances to medical imaging, business and consumer financing and industrial products.
After a sell off in January the price has steadied and risen in an orderly up-trend. Recent price activity has resulted in some consolidation with a pending up-side breakout a possibility. If this does occur then the price could continue up-wards with a target of $28.00. At this stage I will wait for the box breakout to occur before committing to any long position trade.
Wall Street Traders Report April 10th
The US markets enjoyed a bullish day on Wednesday with gains made in all the major indexes. The S&P500 gained over 1% and manged to bounce off the 1,840 support level I mentioned in yesterday’s blog. The S&P500 is currently trading in a range bound by support of 1,840 and resistance of 1,895.
Coca-Cola Company (KO)
The chart for Coca-Cola shows an ascending triangle with horizontal resistance at $39.00. For this set-up I will be watching for a breakout closing price above $39.00 to trigger my buy signal. If this occurs then I will be targeting a price of $41.00.
Eli Lilly and Co (LLY)
Eli-Lilly has been trading within a rectangular range bound by support at $57.00 and resistance of $60.00. Yesterday saw a breakout closing price above the $60.00 resistance level. I will look for confirmation of the breakout today with a second day close above $60.00.
Traders Report AMP (AMP) Long Setup
AMP (AMP) is a listed company on the Australian Stock Exchange and provider of life insurance, superannuation, pensions and other financial services in Australia and New Zealand. AMP has a market capitalization of over $14 billion.
The chart below shows the 12 month price action. A short-term down trend was broken in late February with the subsequent formation of an ascending triangle with a horizontal resistance level of $5.10. On this setup I will be waiting for a resistance breakout and close above $5.10 to act as my trigger signal to go long (buy).
If the resistance breakout does occur then based on the measured moved theory the height of the triangle extrapolated from the resistance level provides a target level of $5.50.
Traders Report Magellan Financial Group (MFG)
Magellan Financial Group trades on the Australian Stock Exchange. The company establishes and manages globally focused, performance oriented investment funds and invests in boutique funds managers.
The chart below shows the recent price action has formed an ascending triangle with a horizontal resistance level at $13.96. I will be watching for a resistance breakout and a close above $14.00 to trigger a buy signal.
Traders Report Sirtex Medical (SRX)
Sirtex Medical (SRX) trades on the Australian sharemarket and belongs to the listed companies of the All Ordinaries Index. Sirtex is a biotech company involved in the research and commercial development of treatments for liver cancer.
The chart below shows a strong up-trend developed after the mid January breakout and explosion in prices. The recent price action has seen the formation of a bull flag pattern.
On this setup I will be watching for a breakout from the upper trend-line of the flag on good volume.
Wall Street Trader Report March 21
It’s been a quiet week for me on the trading front mainly due to missed opportunities on the Australian market with limit orders not being hit. As trading is not my full-time job this makes it difficult to see new opportunities as they arise during the market hours as I am busy working in my full-time job. This is one of the disadvantages of a part-time trader with a day job as many of you may be, however, I am hoping to be able to enter a trade on the US markets when they open in a few hours from now. To finish off the week I will write about a long and a short position trade setup.
LPL Investment Holdings (LPLA)
LPLA formed a strong up-trend from October to January when it hit a high of $54.91. It then began to move sideways and formed an ascending triangle which is a sign of consolidation and ordered profit taking. Yesterday saw a breakout from resistance with a strong bullish candle. I’d like to see the resistance price re-tested and to hold above this level before entering.
Amazon.Com (AMZN) has formed a bearish wedge after a very bearish breakdown through support on January 31st. I have highlighted the re-test of the support level which acted as resistance and halted further price increases. You can see how the candle tried to break through the resistance level but closed lower forming a long-tailed candlestick.
Yesterday saw a breakout from the lower trend-line making up the wedge pattern. I suspect the price will resume it’s downtrend from here and may fall all the way back towards the support level of $340. Any price increase should be held up by the resistance level of $380.
