NUGT: Bullish Setup Watch List

Reason: Potential tradable bottom.

There is no confirmation yet of at least a short-term bottom but Thursday's large black hollow candlestick (Almost a Marubozu) is suggesting potential selling exhaustion after a dramatic selloff. In addition yesterday's weakness at the opening + strong close printing a Hammer is strengthening the idea of a potential bottom.

The RSI (5) is extremely oversold but the absence of a positive divergence suggests treating the potential up leg as a countertrend bounce.

If today price opens below yesterday's hod and then rallies into the eod we could have a 3 -days reversal pattern (Morning Doji Star).

If a short-term bottom is in place and a multi-day tradable bounce is in progress we need to see the 3 dma = 36.31 becoming support. If this is the case probably NUGT could reach in the next few days the cluster of resistance located in the range 43.35 (0.382 R) - 44.48 (Gap fill).

If the gap at 44.48 is closed then probably the initial considered "oversold" bounce could morph into something more bullish.

The issue for the long setup is the stop (below yesterday's lod) which means an 8.5% risk hence I hope for pullback at the opening or maybe chasing it with small size.

The main objective of this project is to share my views on several markets and asset classes.

In the initial stage TWT website will be a free service.

My main focus will be the equity market with SPX being the leader but I will also follow US equity sectors, major European indices, fixed income, currencies and commodities markets.

My analysis is based upon traditional Technical Analysis, Elliot Wave guidelines and investor sentiment.

My goal is to establish the most likely path that the price of a particular asset will undertake and profit through ETF instruments both on the long and short side and mainly with leveraged ones (2 x & 3 x).

The advantage of ETF investments is that it allows getting involved in equity indices & sectors, currencies, fixed income, commodities etc.

Therefore the main purpose of TWT will be to establish investment strategies regardless if the market is in an up trend or in a down trend, leveraging the chosen scenario while managing the risk by establishing protective stop losses.

Hence I will always define the risk, I will try to let winners run the wave and I will cut the losses if my strategy is wrong.
