Chart of the Day
— Nautilus Research (@NautilusCap) July 29, 2021
Today’s Chart of the Day was shared on Twitter by Nautilus Research (@NautiliusCap). It’s a chart of Pfizer ($PFE) in two different time frames. Nautilus points out that the past two years of price action look exactly like the past two decades of price action. In Technical Analysis, we often say prices are fractal in nature. Meaning, price patterns behave in the same way in both short-time frames and long-time frames. In this case, $PFE is attempting to break out of a 2-year base, and a 20-year base at the same time. You could also call this a bullish Cup & Handle pattern if that’s your thing. The bottom line is that this former Dow stock is attempting to break out across multiple time frames. So, whether you’re a long-term investor or swing trader, this setup looks promising as long as the stock can hold above $40.
Quote of the Day
“Whenever a breakout occurs with a stock moving into virgin territory (it’s never traded there before), this is the most bullish situation you can buy. Think about it. There isn’t one person who is long and has a loss.”

Dow Jones formed a perfect continuation pattern. A break above 35000 will make it fly. pic.twitter.com/4h2tkZf54G

Going into a seasonally weak time for the market $SPY and bullish time for the $VIX, observing a "stealth correction" / deterioration of market participation, one cannot help wonder how $IWM will finish out July. Possible bearish engulfing pattern… pic.twitter.com/YK1I8Wpdkc

Just like Apple $AAPL, Amazon $AMZN is now set to trade lower on each of its last 4 earnings reaction days. Would also be its 5th move lower on its last 6 earnings reports. Stock is up ~38% over this time frame… pic.twitter.com/QvImByuhnY

Earnings are out and #Amazon $AMZN and #NASDAQfutures #NQ_F fall. AMZN falls below previous breakout support. It's a long time until tomorrow morning, will price bounce back between now and tomorrow's open? Not a recommendation. pic.twitter.com/HqCQIWTNch
