Canopy Growth Corp (CGC) Technical Analysis for October 26, 2018

Technical Analysis of Canopy Growth Corporation

(By Glenford S. Robinson)

Canopy Growth Corporation (NYSE: CGC) is currently trading at 38.35 as of 9 am Eastern Standard Time, 10/26/2018. The stock is therefore operating in what we (Mstardom Finance Traders) call the red zone (36.71-44.88) or danger zone where it can either go up or down. This is very important for short-term or long-term traders to know. If the trader is in a long-term position, I would think that he or she would be occupying a bullish or long position. However, on the short-term side, I would expect any short positions to be short-term. This thinking was conceived as a result of the overall fundamentals of the company and its stock price including the sector and industry in which it is operating in.

Our proprietary trading strategy or the Mstardom Finance proprietary trading strategy tells us that any price range between 36.71 and 44.88 is a sell signal. However, traders should keep in mind that the closer the price gets to 36.71 is the more likely a reversal could occur. This is why we call this range the danger zone because anything can happen between these price points. This is where candlestick monitoring and stochastic monitoring coupled with a short timeframe is paramount.

Any trader deciding to trade the red zone should stay glued to his or her trading station monitors because any trade executed in this red zone range has a low probability of success from a short-term shorting perspective. Any long-term bullish trade in the red zone is fine, based on the fundamentals of the company. A short-term short position or a short-term long position could be a problem for the less experienced trader.

To be on the safe side of things, we are buyers at the 36.71 and below price point and anything close. For example, at the price point of 38.61, we will become long-term buyers or bulls because we anticipate this trade to be a high probability trade on a long-term basis. We understand that the price could easily go down lower than 38.61, but we are fine with that once we are not using leverage. Leverage is for the professionals. Leverage is when a broker lends money to the trader for him or her to make more trades than the trader’s original money can make. Brokers will liquidate or sell your stock at a loss for you if they think that the stock is losing value. Many accredited investors do not use leverage, and if they do, they use it very sparingly, such as exposing a very small percentage of their portfolio to leveraged or borrowed money.

So, what about the higher ranges or support levels price points? The next price point or hypothetical resistance area is 58.59. Our proprietary trading strategy tells us to become bears at the 58.59 price levels. Therefore, any price anywhere close to 58.59 or higher will turn us into sellers or bears. We must follow our trading strategy because not doing so is a sure way to fail in trading. A trader without a plan has planned to fail in trading the financial markets, and we do not wish to become victims of the financial markets.

Another projected selling price point for CGC is at the 72.23 price level. We will become bears again at the 72.23 level because investors are going to want to take profits a week or days after they have poured in their millions of dollars following a positive news article catalyst.

We will continue with more Technical Analysis for CGC in future Technical Analysis articles.

Pre-recession Could be Current State of U.S. Economy, Emotionally!

Defining a recession as two consecutive quarters of negative GDP growth doesn’t tell the whole story of the effect human emotions has on the financial markets. Before there are any consecutive quarters of negative GDP growth, there is the impact of human emotions on the financial markets, which should be taken into consideration. So, by the time two quarters of consecutive GDP growth hits the headlines, investors’ emotions would’ve already nose-dived into depression, dragging down the economy with it. That scenario could be the vampire plaguing the current U.S. economy.

Fed Chairman Powell Signaled US Economy Could Be on Verge of Economic Collapse

Could the US economy be on the verge of an all-out economic collapse? Well, the urgency with which the Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell has acted says exactly that. The Chairman hinted on Friday that the central bank would continue its rate cutting plans started last month (rate cut of 25-basis points).

US Treasury 30-Year Bond Yield Hits Record Low, Economy Heading for Recession?

The infamous inverted yield curve is used to forecast economic recession and it too has shown itself a few times recently, flip flopping its way into the hearts of paranoid investors. The take-away from this is that for a true economic recession to occur, the inverted yield curve must remain inverted for many months to qualify as a true predictor of economic recession.

US Federal Rate cut has come and gone, Now What?

The price of gold has certainly benefitted from the US-China trade war, hitting a six-year high of $1,510. When there are uncertainties in the US dollar and global economy, investors look for safe-haven asset classes to stash their cash. Gold is one of those safe-haven asset classes that investors turn to during times of trouble. In addition, the price of gold is inversely proportional to the price of the US dollar. This means that whenever the price of gold goes up, the price and value of the US dollar goes down. So, as currency traders who trade the USD against other currencies, we should all understand the relationship between the USD and AUX (Gold).

US Interest Rate Cut Sentiment Keeping EUR/USD Above 1.1200

If our prediction holds true, we can expect that the 1.1200 area of support could quickly become an area of resistance all day Thursday, July 25; and may give way Friday a t 8:30 am when US Q2 GDP is expected to come in lower than previous readings.

US Retail Sales Rose, But Building Permits Fall; Fed Rate Cut Decision Pending

The monthly building permit report is watched closely by traders, investors, economists, and by the Federal Reserve. Because all related factors associated with the construction of a building are very important economic activities (for example, financing and employment), the building permit report can give major hints as to the current state of the economy in the not-so-distant future. So, the fact that the latest building permit numbers came in well below estimates, there is cause for concern and the Feds may very will cut interest rate to jump start the economy by putting a cap on the progress of deflation.

US Inflation Rate Fell from 1.8% to 1.6% Giving Strong Indication of a Fed Rate Cut in July

With a strong US dollar, the stock market suffers. This was also one of the reasons why President Donald Trump lashed out at the Feds claiming that the agency was not doing enough to stimulate the economy, condemning the agency for hiking interest rates two times this year, thus stifling the efforts of the US President to stimulate the economy when he championed the passing of legislation which allows huge tax breaks to companies.
