Rithika's Chase Summary


OMG today was ACTIVE!
My SPX $5500 & NVDA 138 PT from last week were tagged!

Rithika’s AMD call at open for a run from 156 to 166 WORKED GREAT.

Alexander's recently added/written up NRIX is up > 12% today.

My new fascination with GILD last week (news of GLP-1 weight loss compounding drug / think HIMS) really took off at open today: 65 hit 68 1st PT. I still like the AUG financed call spread rec'd for a dime/scratch: 62.50P sold against 67.50x75CS is now worth $1.75.

Profit taking in full view - for reasons discussed - AAPL, MU, CMG, NVDA, QCOM - lots of scalping short on expected PROFIT TAKING into quad witching!

QQQ gorgeous short < 485.90 trigger. Really needs to break 479 to have any chance to pull down to 472 - which WAS MY 2024 PT. If we get more bullish flows after OpEx, I still can see $504 QQQ before leg is done.

DELL, SMCI, ORCL gorgeous continuation chases into resistance levels

SPX Green with VIX Green is always a warning for incoming digestion.
SVXY below 61 is market chop; below is bullish market.

Sadly, I don't trust the precious metal bounce: GLD, SLV, GDX as explained in my Intermarket Review.
Bitcoin still looks soggy/weak. I can easily see $60K then let's see.

And yes, I still expect NVDA resistance of $140.75 intraday to act as area for short-term digestion down 10% to $130 - maybe Fri but next week is safer.

NKE is trying to get above 92 wkly support.
IBM is trying to get above 175 resistance.

IP Swing Long nice consolidation past month at 45 now pushing into 47, next 48.50.
MMM Swing long nice consolidation above 10W near 101 for more than a month looking boring but good.
WMB still boring but profitable Swing Long

Lots of XLE + XME related bounces at 50W: XOM, STLD, CMC,

LLY Trend trade since $200 hit $900 today. Wish I also had NVO!

BABA still falling into 72.81 daily gap fill before 70.53 wkly support - where it is worth buying again as LRE (low risk entry).
KWEB still falling into 10W at 27.84

Trend Long Considerations:
ORLY already trend long for many moons + doing awesome.
IBKR long still working well
ISRG long still working well
BKNG long since EPS still working well and NOW ATH > 3918 WKLY CLOSE

TSLA Swing Long hasn't moved, yet - TOTW long into EPS
PLTR Swing Long has worked well > 24 now needs to stay > 25.20 WKLY CLOSE
ABBV looks great swing long > 170 WKLY CLOSE
UBER digesting well > 69.30 DAILY CLOSE

USDJPY still working higher into 160 "wall"
TLT still working higher as 10Y yield digests 4.2%


AAPL getting chased down to 210
NVDA 130 put lottos for next week below 141, needs below 137 for 130 (above 141 we have 144.9)
AMD potential to 166/167 if 164 holds above then digestion then 175
PENN $20 and $30 calls coming in
CHWY 25.4 overshooting into 27
SMCI 1020 two levels of resistance careful there
ADSK holds over 244 for 250,260 next
PLTR pushing towards 27 target

Michael's Trading Room Summary

MAG7 - Sideways since FOMC - still in that Wednesdays candle. Still at weekly highs; still bullish. 130 PT

Weighted Dollar / Yields Ratio - tested 275 again & kept it but still under 288. Would need to get back above 300 to see a bearish impact to the SPX & indexes.

IWF:IWD - Still in YTD highs; looks like it is trying to breakout into new highs on the week. Still bullish; Extended but not showing any weakness yet. Still hot.


T2100 - still under the TL.

T2104 - not enough buying to get excited.

T2123 - Rolling over.

T2126 - Still sideways. Digesting. Equal Weight NASDAQ falling... Semi's are not.

WTI CRUDE - daily breakout; above 80 on weekly. Expecting a surprise downside move (just not right now).

GOLD (futures) - attempted a breakout daily & stalled against resistance; still up slightly this morning.

Nat Gas - still under 3.00$ but now more firmly in this channel it has developed

Bit Coin - proxies are up this morning. Getting stabilized.


Dollar (DXY) - "scoop" formation - 105.80 resistance holding. Channel surfing. Maybe H&S pattern daily.

USDJPY - the 152 wall broke & it's still moving higher... new line in sand is 160.00$. Watching for action to tap it down around that 160 area.

USDCNH - still bid.


TLT - Still expecting bonds to get / be bid. digesting.

TNX - think 4.2 breaks & we get into 4.1% this summer.

ZN (10Y) - digesting here

ZT (2Y) - digesting here.

10/2 spread - still expecting a gap fill... making lower lows on reflexive bounce. Think the inversion will be sharper on the downside drop if the TNX breaks that 4.2 & gets into 4.1%.


SPX - XLK, NASDAQ is bidding up SPY. not bearish until under 5340

IWM - buy Small Caps when they are close to the last rate cut... (not the first cut). Above 212 is trigger long.
