Retest for iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology ETF (IBB)

I published this daily candlestick chart for IBB to highlight a couple of principles in technical analysis. First, the reversal of roles is an important concept in technical analysis. The $270 resistance point is now support. Second, a retest of the breakout point is common before the stock resumes the near-term uptrend. But, these are guidelines. Everything in technical analysis is about probabilities. A break below support of $270 would change the whole technical picture.

WD-40 (WDFC) long-term chart

I published the long-term chart for WD-40 as an example of identifying the major uptrend and riding the trend. A simple strategy of staying in the trade above the 40-week simple moving average was a simple winning strategy: enter above 40-week sma and exit below 40-week sma. The consumer staples sector was a winning sector over the past 6 years.

Barrick Gold 3-year weekly chart

The candlestick chart for Barrick Gold shows support at $17 which is near the 50-day moving average. A break below $17 would have some tentative support at $16. After that, it would be an elevator ride down to $12 near the 200-day moving average. I just published a chart for gold showing the $1200 support zone. A break for gold below $1200 would presage a break below $17 for Barrick Gold.
