MICRON Technology Inc. (MU.O) Friday (7/29/2016)
Index NASDAQ 100® S&P 500®
$13.74 0.07 (0.51%) After Hours: 13.78 +0.04 (0.29%)
—————————
I do not know if you noticed, but per the “weekly” (Friday to Friday) projections, the “projected” closing price generated Thursday for Friday was $13.75 versus $13.74 actual.
Each day’s trading moves the numbers. The Supports (s1, s2) calculated from Micron’s trading reflect Sellers unwilling, at that time, to accept lower prices. The Resistances (r1, r2) calculated from Micron’s trading reflect Buyers unwilling, at that time, to pay higher prices. The Pivot Point is the Price at which the Buyers/Sellers seem to agree upon prices the most. When prices, or points, are above the Pivot Point, the Bulls are winning. When prices, or points, are below the Pivot point, the Bears are winning.
Depending on the stock, mutual fund, ETF, bond, et cetera the Pivot Point indicators are 50 to 70 percent accurate on going Long, or BUYS. So, having hundreds of indicators to pick from, I back test to find the handful of indicators that (1) produce the most money (2) with the most winning trades, (3) the least losing trades, AND then look for collective agreement on a buy. However, having bought, the next hardest thing to do is figuring out when to sell, or even short. (Note, I do not short anything, but I do pay attention) Problem solved, if my Pivot Point indicators say (suggests) Sell/Short, pay attention because they are ninety to 97 percent accurate on selling/shorting. Yes, 90 to 97%. I can’t help but admire that level of accuracy. That’s why I do Bull AND Bear analyses. Getting out is a no brainer. Now, if I could just tweak the BUY side of my equations to get equivalent BUY side accuracy … I’d be in Seventh Heaven!
This math, data, equations, calculations, projections, … and results is not unlike choreographing a dance between the Bulls and the Bears … and occasionally this dance can produce that one great Pearl … the CLAW.

The CLAW.
The claw chart formation, which I am seeing hints of in Micron’s Daily chart, occurs when the Resistances (r1, r2) AND the Supports (s1, s2) converge to the Pivot Point. Talk about crowded Bull/Bear dancing and neither one can make up their mind who’s leading. . This formation is my “Heads up” that (1) a potentially big move is coming and (2) that more homework is needed to determine whether it’s Bullish, or Bearish. A picture being worth a 1000 words … check out “the Claw” in my 2 blogs on:

One of my other Pivot Point indicators, based on Micron Tech’s Friday 7/29/2016, trading actions suggests a “sell/short exit” which, upon examination of the data, appears to meet the criteria of a contrarian “Bullish” indicator.
Also: the cautionary retracement calculations are holding steady at $13.02. The cautionary pull back numbers are inching upward, pennies at a time, but upward: in (p5): $13.18; in (p5a) $13.26; in analysis for Monday’s trading $13.27.

The current trend is up and all orders on the long side may be considered. If already holding long positions, look to take partial profits on any retracement to 13.02. Traders with remaining long positions, after profit taking, should consider placing capital conserving stops in the region of 13.02.
