Reversal Characteristics & Candidates

Stocks can reverse suddenly or slowly.  Sometimes it takes place in one big bar, and other times it’s a process that occurs over time.

Because there are differences in how downside reversals can happen, after running across a couple of reversal candidates in the charts, I wanted to share a couple here on the blog.

Uptrends will often times be followed by corrective action, which may pave the way for further upside down the road.  But a reversal is often a longer-lasting change of direction, and that’s what I’d like to discuss in this post.

When looking for reversal candidates, the thing to watch for is a change of character.  Something that’s different from previous dips and stands out as a potential shift in the stock.  That might be a lower high, or it might be a sudden decline which proves to be much sharper and faster than previous pullbacks were.

Show & Tell

In the video below, I want to point out 2 stocks which might be undergoing reversals.  That means there’s plenty more to prove before they can be considered to be in corrective mode (as opposed to merely a dip within their uptrends), but chart reading is always a work in progress.  If the characteristics which we’re seeing now happen to change, then so should our expectation.

For now though, let’s take a look at what’s going on and see if these show us the necessary price moves to confirm what the charts of FUQI and RL may already be saying.

Thanks for stopping by and I’ll see you here soon with more. Until then…
