Rithika's Chase Summary

Craig and I did our bi-weekly EDGE Roundup webinar after market close Tuesday - posted in Member Dashboard. We agree earnings expectations are quite elevated (17-20% for 2025) despite 6 quarters of sideways...

We also talked about AI TECH getting talked down by Barclays, Sequoia, Goldman + Citibank in recent days - trying to ring the bell, but no one has heard it yet. We see no selling yet, and yet, I showed my MOST BEARISH CHART which is not a timing tool but a STRONG INDICATOR that on the next air pocket of risk, we could very well have a much stronger correction than is currently expected (of a mere 10%). Long story short, as I have written/discussed often: until we break above 4.2% unemployment rate and below 4.2% 10Y yield, this market is hell bent on higher as indicated by my MAG7 ratio that is not yet at price target.

With earnings kicking off with banks Friday morning, I suspect we continue to grind sideways - with overshoot in QQQ to $504/507 - until mid August. That would be after Yellen's QRA, bulk of earnings, VIX expiration mid-Aug and seasonal weakness into Q3 end Sept 30th. PUTS FOR THIS TIMEFRAME ARE BID as of Friday the 5th - as in YUGE size: $220M in premium for put spreads all the way down to $4300. READ: right where NOV 1st Fed Pause & Yellen Yahtzee kicked in!

In the meantime, CPI Thurs + PPI Fri won't change my opinion that we are in a deflation impulse + Fed will cut by Sept at least. Election risk is YUGE as well with DNC conference in Aug and GOP in Sept. Makes sense to hedge into all of this as #RFK is still trending strongly, so don't rule him out, in which case, everything will change.
Trade Ideas:
TSLA into $265 was high conviction past few days. It has now been up 11 out of 11 days. AND is still massively bid with calls and OTM calls at that.SEMIs are still bid and breaking ATH!
ASML breaking > 1077 ATH.
LRCX got above key 1007 wkly resistance and is not pushing into ATH above 1102 wkly support!
AVGO has done nothing wrong since clearing wkly resistance at 1438 now pushing > 1747.
AMAT same same: broke above wkly resistance of 215 and today is making new AT above 249.42 wkly support!
ADI is another personal fave since it broke above wkly resistance at 202.77 and ran higher into 241.88, digested, and is looking very good holding its 10W at 224 with 231.50 nice LRE wkly support.
NVDA had massively bullish NOV risk reversals entered yday for $2+ by selling $120P + buying $145C.
AMD was rec'd Rithika chase. I liked on trigger of 164 to 174; 174 to 184. Digesting now, but bullish above.
MU holding $130 is bullish
MRVL holding 174 is bullish.
Stalking some potential bottom fishing plays in potential HF factor rotation to come: LCID, SEDG, etc but not with any high conviction, yet.
CVNA back to monthly 134.68 PT
RIVN back to 16.50 wkly PT - remember, 17% is owned by AMZN + Volkwagon invested $5B recently.
AEHR was the Chase of the day given it pre-announced earnings last night and ran from open into 16.05 PT before I suggested profit taking/digestion, and yet, with 21.5% short interest and a gorgeous cradle formation on wkly chart, this could be a very nice swing long on trend reversal pattern.
Trend Long breakouts recently rec'd:
ICE > 138.46 wkly trigger now 144
RACE > 430 on gap up would be very nice continuation.
VRTX > 486Recently rec'd restaurant shorts all hit initial PTs: CMG, DPZ, WING.
I updated WING short PT at 379.
NOW rec'd short near open Mon has reached 1st PT of 737. Next break = 696 in time.
We reviewed A LOT of bio plays. My faves:
VKTX scoop pattern long > 51.60 wkly support needing 60.30 then 70 to hold.
VRNA looks like early RNA on way to 18.47 from its 200D.
TGTX > 18.39 wkly support has MAJOR HEDGE FUND sponsorship + Alex likes the science/space!!
SEPT $530 PUTS for $3 are the largest contract. Just sayin'

Rithika chase summary notes:
NVDA 135 tagged above 128 pivot can continue higher
AMD pushed into 184 overshot to 187 and warned as resistance there
TSLA 265 acting as resistance if below can see 256, 250
INTU pushing down into 617 possible bounce there then heading to 599
DKNG heading down to 35
JMIA moving along to 11.80,12 above 10.55
SNAP must stay over 17.07 for 19
WING target hit on trendline, could overshoot to 379 but don't get greedy as trendlines usually yield bounces
CMG approaching 56, 55.90
MSFT If then trade, stay below 461 push to 456 then can test 451
LCID potential lotto above 3.35 into 3.8,4 ( speculative low price mover)
CVNA pushing into 135
AAPL 230 calls coming in flow

BIDU - news of ROBO TAXI's yesterday gave this a pop higher. Tapped daily 55-MA. Get & Stay above the 10W ... then we could digest & move higher.

BABA - could be developing a bottom but needs to get above 77 to excite. Likely see 70$ tagged again FIRST before any real pop higher.

DRI - 135 & then a bounce.

ICE - Like this for higher; looks great. Working.

INTU - shake n bake.

JMIA - popped above 50-week. Has doubled in 1 month. Has to stay above 10.55$ ... this is "Amazon company" of South Africa

TSLA - is just TSLA. Hit 265 weekly PT. It's 11-days of green ... Above 265 weekly we could see 280 weekly. Breaking 256 offers a short into 237 PT.

UBER - dumping. Looking for a ricochet rabbit

WING - short play has worked great. 379 short PT. Restaurant play.
