This fall, I’ve been monitoring BIDU as it entered a parabolic thrust. Since my last post, it has not made much additional upside progress; rather, it has formed a very nice distribution base. This week, it finally succumbed to the overhead pressure, and looks to be in great shape to continue holding as a medium-term short trade.
Notice that for the first time in the entire 2-year uptrend, the stock never made a lower high and lower low. The fact that this has happened this week indicates that the stock is now technically in a downtrend. Also, note that it broke back into a rising channel. I see support @ $95 as it tests the lower part of the channel. I’d like to see it consolidate at this level for a few weeks, and then break down in the next portion of it’s decline.
