Excellent market week! I gave everyone a preview in today's Diamond Mine that Monday's DecisionPoint Show "Diamond of the Week" would be the ever popular...... Netflix (NFLX). Rather than looking at the biggest winner today, I'll look at NFLX instead. You'll see on the spreadsheet that the biggest loser is Athenex (ATNX). It's a Biotech and of course one of the "diamonds in the rough" that I bought yesterday. I'll be looking for a way to sell it on Monday. Of all of this week's Diamonds, I managed to buy the worst one. Such is the trader's life.

A few items about the spreadsheet: I decided it only fair to denote "reader requests" as I shouldn't get to take credit if they turn out great! I've put on the spreadsheet whether the RSI is positive (green) or negative (red). The PMO column tells you if it is rising (green) or falling (red). Finally I've added my own "Sparkle Factor" that gives you my assessment going forward, bullish (green), bearish (red) or neutral (gray). The Sparkle Factor is basically my thoughts on whether I expect it to rise or fall. A neutral means it could really go either way so it could be added to a watch list. If you're in a stock I consider "neutral" going forward, the ball is in your court.

Below is Wednesday's chart. You can see the original write-up in the November 4th Diamonds Report. I noted that on Thursday we could end up seeing an upside price shock on earnings Thursday.
Well, we got follow-through on the breakout on Thursday after earnings. I liked the set-up and then.... today's chart. What used to be a bullish falling wedge is now a declining trend channel more or less. The RSI turned negative and the PMO turned down below its signal line. No upside on this chart, I'm going to unload it next week.
Don't forget, on Thursdays I look at reader-requested symbols, so shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. I read every email I receive and try to answer them all!
Preview of Next Week's "Diamond of the Week":
Netflix, Inc (NFLX)
EARNINGS: 1/19/2021 (AMC)
Netflix, Inc. is a streaming entertainment service company, which provides subscription service streaming movies and television episodes over the Internet and sending DVDs by mail. It operates through the following segments: Domestic Streaming, International Streaming and Domestic DVD. The Domestic Streaming segment derives revenues from monthly membership fees for services consisting solely of streaming content to its members in the United States. The International Streaming segment includes fees from members outside the United States. The Domestic DVD segment covers revenues from services consisting solely of DVD-by-mail. The company was founded by Marc Randolph and Wilmot Reed Hastings Jr., on August 29, 1997 and is headquartered in Los Gatos, CA.
Netflix is coming off the bottom of a wide trading channel. In fact, price didn't have to test the bottom of the channel before reversing. We can see accumulation of this stock right now. The PMO is rising and the RSI just reached positive territory. My only issue is that the October gap hasn't been closed so we have gap resistance at $520. I have a blue arrow pointing the the EMAs, this is because today we had both a ST and IT Trend Model BUY signals trigger.
I'd be happy with a test of all-time highs at a near 12% gain. The weekly PMO isn't good, which tells me to be happy with a move to new all-time highs. I'll recheck the weekly chart when we see price hit that resistance level.
THIS WEEK's Sector Performance:
I'm not making any changes to the sector and industry groups to watch this week. I still like this area of the market and I believe you can add Gold and Gold Miners as well. I thought about Technology, but I believe we'll see a pullback next week. Those are typically led by Technology. Materials seem to get a boost when the market is soft.
Sector to Watch: Materials Sector (XLB)
