Biotech: Election Top Closer

The October 4th, update proposed a top and reversal for Biotech (IBB) at or near the election.  November, 2nd , or 3rd, could be new highs followed by an immediate reversal.

Fibonacci week 34, from the 3/16/20 lows, is the week ending on Friday, November 6th.

The daily chart (below) has a trend that’s been confirmed; If it remains intact for the next three weeks, it will lead us straight to new highs at the beginning of November.

Following price action in this way allows for preparation. 

Timing, position size and stop levels can be (and must be) planned in advance. Not a recommendation, not financial advice.

The topping formation in biotech has been followed and traded (via BIS and LABD) by this firm since early June. 

Doing so, forces one to be accustomed to the behavior of the sector. 

Behaviors such as counter trend action in IBB, tends to be complete and resume original trend, right around the 10:00 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. time-frame.

That’s a data nugget that can’t be obtained by parachuting into a sector, taking a position and hoping it all works out.

A perfect (short) trade set-up would be for price to gap-higher into the 2nd, or 3rd (November) and allow for an entry with a well defined stop … such as the top of the gap-bar.

Of course, at the open this Monday, IBB could break the trend-line and create an alternate scenario … anything can happen.

However, at this point, probabilities and momentum (although waning) favor continuation upward.
