Palo Alto Networks (PANW); Why price is the true north star

Palo Alto Networks is a super high flying stock. It is a sector leader, it is in IBD 20 big cap growth stock, and in the top 50 growth stocks in the USA.

It jumped on earnings 20 dollars on 2/25/2019. By yesterday by 4 trading days it lost about 20 dollars. Why?

there was no bad news, market was not overly selling away. So we do not know. But price does have all the info that we need to trade!

We do not know why sometimes. But what does that matter!

Cut your looses short and move on. I did that and sold on March 1st and went long on QLD. Why? because the market is in uptrend.

Looking into todays Market Fall

It could have been a potentially good money making day. I should not have gotten out so early. Shorted at 9:40 am with 1 contract of NQZ14 and left way too early.

I was not prepared at all, and I only saw the signs later, much later.

What was the signs? Simple as before- Price and Volume.

Overall 30 days

4087 was a 1 month old support and resistance from above

Now, lets look at the 1 day 2 min chart, a 4500 volume contract! Just right at the open there were a rush of sellers.

By 9:48 am I should have seen this spike in volume, the tallest bar in the left .

afterwards there was not turning back. at 9:38am, 9:40 am, 9:42 am, and 9:44 am all great volume spikes and price decreasing.

NQ 1DAY 1 MIN

Hope fully next time we will not miss it

Happy Trading!
