There is a great setup in the works heading into Monday.
It’s very similar to the trade I had in IWM from last week…
*See disclaimer below
One of my favorite stocks, Zoom Video (ZM) reports earnings after the close tomorrow.
And I think there’s a massive opportunity here.
You see, last time the company reported earnings, the stock shot up over 40%!
ZM Daily Chart
But did you notice the +6% gain the day leading into the announcement?
And what about the +4% gain the day after?
I unearthed one of my favorite chart patterns in ZM along with two other fantastic trade ideas.
So if you weren’t excited for this trading week, you will be by the end of this newsletter.
So what’s got me all excited about ZM?
Let’s look at the chart and find out.
ZM Hourly Chart
This is a great chart because it illustrates several trading ideas all wrapped into one package.
Once ZM bottomed in mid-November, shares created a ‘stairstep’ pattern.
Think of this as a group of bullish patterns stacked on top of each other.
It starts with a sharp move higher, leading into a sideways consolidation.
That precedes the next move higher, and so on and so on.
See the blue curved line underneath the candlesticks? That’s the 30-period moving average.
Notice how shares broke above it, then traded sideways until they hit that line.
They used it as support to make the next push higher.
And where did that take them?
Right into the all-important 200-period moving average (green line).
That means shares closed Friday at the high of the week. Typically, this creates a follow-through the following day and week.
Couple that with the break above all the moving averages and you’ve got a real bullish look to this chart.
You can bet that before the market opens Monday, this will be high up on my list for my Bullseye Trade of the week.
But don’t cut away yet because jobs Friday creates some awesome trade setups.
Jobs data points to strength
Although the weekly jobless claims painted a slowing jobs picture, all that is about to change.
As we hit Q2 of next year, a significant portion of the population will have been inoculated. That has markets bullish on the prospects of recapturing the growth before the pandemic.
We’re already seeing this in one key sector – industrials.
One of my favorite stocks is Caterpillar (CAT).
With the dollar dropping and global demand rising, orders for heavy machinery should pick up.
Shares already hit all-time highs last week, and there’s a sweet setup forming on the hourly chart.
CAT Hourly Chart
Here is another fantastic chart pattern I love to trade.
When you see a stock make a sharp move higher and then consolidate sideways, pay attention.
Do what I did here and draw trendlines (orange lines above) that connect the highs and lows of the candlesticks.
See if they move away from one another, run parallel, or converge.
Notice whether they slope upward.
This is a continuation pattern where I look for price to take a breather before breaking higher.
I see two possibilities here. First, shares spike lower to meet the 200-period moving average early next week. That would be a spot I want to get long CAT.
Second, price continues its sideways drift, allowing the 200-period moving average to work its way higher. This is what I expect to happen.
Think of it like a spring all coiled up. All it wants is a tap on the shoulder to release. And it just so happens that the jobs numbers could be that catalyst.
Now, let me tell you about one last juicy tidbit no one else is sharing.
The big market breakout is coming
Pundits love to tell us how the economy is fragile with weak consumers.
As long as the Fed has our backs, this market is only headed in one direction.
That’s why this could be one of the greatest investment opportunities of this decade.
I already started scooping up companies in my Portfolio Accelerator to not just grow my investments, but ENHANCE their returns.
