Wall Street Traders Report July 4th
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.

It provides services for the development of electric powertrain components and engages in the sale of electric powertrain components to other automotive manufacturers.
The share price for Tesla increased 8.81% on Monday on the back of positive news from the company that it’s long anticipated electric car Model X SUV will be delivered in early 2015.
The share price managed to breakout from its recent trading range and through recent resistance on higher than normal volume. I expect the bulls to come in and push prices higher with targets close to the March highs of $260-$265.

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.
Wall Street Traders Report April 9th
The technical’s for the Dow Jones Index show signs of reaching support levels and perhaps falling slightly further before it’s able to resume it’s up-trend.The Index has retraced after touching it’s resistance level of 16,600 and I expect it to keep falling towards the support level of 16,050.
In comparison to the Dow Jones Index above the S&P500 index has already reached it’s short term support level of 1,840. Prices should hold here in the short term before the index is able to resume it’s up-trend. A break below this support region could see prices drop further all the way towards 1,815 points.
Senior Housing Properties Trust
The chart shows the formation of a bullish reversal inverse head and shoulders pattern. The price was able to break through the $23.00 neckline resistance two days ago.
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.
Wall Street Traders Report March 19
Nvidia Corp (NVDA)
Nvidia Corp has formed a bullish flag after a strong steep uptrend. I will look for a breakout from the upper line of the flag to trigger a long signal. In my opinion this breakout will need to close above $18.50 to be reliable.
Quicklogic Corp (QUIK)
Quicklogic had a large bullish break today on strong volume. My strategy on this setup would be to look for an entry point at the mid point of yesterday’s breakout candle with stops placed under the same candle low.
Seabridge Gold (SA)
The price action for Seabridge Gold (SA) has formed an up-trend channel. After hitting the upper trendline the price has retraced back towards the lower trendline. If the up-trend is to remain in place the lower trendline will need to hold as support. Traders can watch for a bounce from this lower trendline in the form of a bullish candle stick reversal pattern to trigger a long signal.
