    I just bought HXQ.TO at 52.96 for long term investment .
    I think is a good buying opportunity after yesterday sell-off .
    But usually I am buying too soon and sell too late .
    I will see in 5-10 years if I was wrong this morning .

  2. Larry/ON Says:

    Rick – Not bad timing. I would only go half-in at this point. It’s looking like a bottom for now. I don’t think we are going to break the old high for some time. If we are lucky we set up a trading range. It’s all dependent on trade negotiations which is frustrating because it is completely unpredictable.

  3. Paula Says:

    I bought XLK at 71.20 for a short term/swing trade this morning. It could have a good bounce from being so oversold. I am more interested in trading the US tech stocks rather than holding. But I usually sell too soon,LOL.

  4. Ron/BC Says:

    The $SPX needs to reclear 2800 price resistance plus reclear 2825 which is also price resistance and its downtrendline to suggest a return to a possible uptrend again. Price is oversold short term and typically bouncing back.
    The never did breakdown below $24 support amazingly. Price does need to reclear $24.25 and then its downtrendline at $24.50 to suggest the present downtrend is over for now.

  5. Larry/ON Says:

    Two percent plus on the SP500 with a high close. It’s a strong statement of support. We should see some continued momentum but the question is how far. A lot of people decided the 200day MA was a good place to buy. Noises about a possible FED cut really helped.

  6. KC Says:

    Hello Ron/BC,

    Thanks for your take on AAPL the other day. Would really appreciate your thoughts on Abbott and CVS Health if you have some time.


  7. Ron/BC Says:


    ABT has a nice uptrendline right now at $71 but topped out in March and has been pulling back with a short downtrendline at $78. Price support is $73 which has been tested a few times successfully now.
    CVS has fallen out of bed and is in a tight consolidation pattern between $51 and $57 which is not that ‘tight’ a range. Not the type of stock one would want to be wrong on. (I saw APPL did tag $170 support.)

    Might be working on another Head and Shoulder Pattern.
