Rithika's Chase Summary

Back in Jan of this year, I gave my bullish price targets for 2024:
SPX $5340
QQQ $444 then $472Call it lucky of good, but they have hit.
(QQQ did in fact hit 444 before pulling back to 413 in April, reversed and here we are!)
So now what?

  1. We melt up - but Powell might have something to say about that later if he pushes rate cuts out to "later this year/early next year" and market is disappointed.

  2. We grind sideways this summer around this level - my baseline bet - as 10Y falls into 4.2%

  3. Profit taking kicks in and we form some reversal pattern of significance to interrupt the bullish complacency & positioning.

In the meantime:

  1. My "Warm Summer Housing Market" call is in full view as yields soften.

  2. My "Bonds are Bid" call since April 30th is in full view when/if TLT can get/stay > $93 and 10Y continues to fall into 4.2%. "What happens if yields crash down not up?" I wrote about this a month ago so good time to review ;-)

  3. Growth continues to outperform as Value plays & NYSE breadth stagnate/fall.

  4. XLU, XLV, XLP defensive names are sideways while SMH + XLK leads with XLRE & IWM are having a strong resurgence on falling yields.

  5. It is still a stock picker's market, and I continue to focus on the strongest stocks within the strongest sectors that are in rotation until we get the next macro trigger, sector rotation or volatility to trigger an equity pullback. I think that level could appear ONCE the 10Y breaks below 4.2% and unemployment rate breaks above 4.2%

Swing Short rec'd of mine in CELH + MNST still working as does XLE + VLO shorts into their respective 200D.Swing Long rec'd of mine in AMZN, GLW , but PYPL got hit on Apple's WWDC event with their "Tap to Pay" feature so $68 has not triggered that long. PLTR however is strong with GM & HOOD.
Don't miss #kentons-corner-biopharm for the hottest picks in this space.
Alexander has been ON FIRE: ISRG, RNA, MREO, GH

Lots of housing plays have seen movement of size like Z up 13% (TREE, LC, ITB, etc)
My rec'd: RKT has triggered, finally - needs to close > 15.08 on daily.
Lots of biotech plays have seen movement of size & love falling yields:
CRSP triggered Mon at 58.35 now 66.87 PT
ISRG triggered last week with close > 404 now 227
GH triggered at 27 two weeks ago now pushing 32
RNA rec'd at $15 back in Feb is not $38! 
GOOGL above 179 we have 181, 183
AMZN approaching 188 next is 190 above
ORCL tagged and overshooting, stay above 132 prior high n remains bullish
SHOP above 64,20 can see 67-67.50
MSFT 431 tagged and overshooting into next target at 436.4, 449.48
NVDA above 120 is bullish into 130,135
CVNA above 112 next is 115
MU above 136 into 140

on the Fave swing/trend long plays...UBER looks great off 63.53 wkly support, now above 69.30 daily support. Just needs to get/stay > 73.05 wkly close to be back in trend!
AMZN looks great having filled $174 daily gap fill I was focused on. Now it just needs to get/stay > 188 to move like AAPL, MSFT, GOOGL, NVDA into ATH
GOOGL above 179 we have 181, 183
ORCL tagged and overshooting, stay above 132 prior high n remains bullish
SHOP above 64,20 can see 67-67.50
MSFT 431 tagged and overshooting into next target at 436.4, 449.48
NVDA above 120 is bullish into 130,135
CVNA above 112 next is 115
Mu above 136 into 140
