ARK Innovation skims Covid lows and sees a rebound.

Do you have an intuition and want to be in the riskiest stocks? Bet a bunch. Buy the ARKK

The ARK Innovation fund – managed by Cathie Wood – hit a low of $33.74 on Oct. 13. Yesterday the low reached $34.06. Today the price is up $2.30 or 6.45%. This is quite a good decision, but the movements of this ETF are quite volatile.

So what does the chart say?

Looking at the daily chart above, the recent October lows have almost fully retraced the upside from the Covid 2020 lows. This move higher took the price from $33.00 to $159.70 (in February 2021), before the tide turns and the price starts falling again and again.

Overall, ARKK price retraced all but $1.06 of the upward move from the Covid low.

And now?

Traders who are risk oriented and want to take a flyer that the low is in, have the option to buy the low off the $33.00 level and hope for a bounce “just because” . The “just because” is risk can be defined and limited from the Covid 2020 low at $33.00.

Staying above $33.00 is more bullish. Move below $33.00 and exit.

If you bought at the current level of $37.65 and put a stop below $33, you are risking $4.65.

Now, that’s still a 12.35% risk. However, IF the bottom is reached – and the price can break above the 100-day MA at $42.66 – that would be a gain of $5.01 (more than the risk).

Move above the 100-day MA, and traders would look to the 200-day MA at $51.79. Arrive at this MA, and the gain is around $14.00 or 37.5%. Would you risk $4.65 to maybe win $5.00 or $14.00 on the two major MA targets?

When looking at the chart, a move towards the 200-day MA (green line) is only a brief moment of the move down from 159.70. It is also close to the August maximum. Of course, this would also require a change in attitude towards riskier stocks. It also requires lower rates and the hope that multiples will pick up again, as the fund’s stocks are still high risk with relatively high valuations (without earnings

Earnings

The profits of a business represent its net profits or benefits resulting from its operation. Profits are the net benefits of operating a company. Profits can be calculated as EBIT, i.e. earnings before interest and taxes, and EBITDA, i.e. earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization. Better performance can lead to stronger stock prices, while bad unexpected earnings can lead to lower stock prices. Using Earnings to Better Inform Investment Decisions Many analysts also use other measures such as earnings per share (EPS) to compare the earnings of multiple companies. EPS is calculated by the remaining earnings for shareholders, divided by the number of shares outstanding. This is a more accurate measure for investors and analysts since each company has a different number of publicly held shares. Merely comparing the existing earnings of companies does not accurately indicate how much money each company has for each of its shares over a specific period. Therefore, EPS is regularly used to make better informed comparisons and forecasts. In the United States, all companies are required to report their quarterly results to the public, which provides information on the state of any publicly traded company. These events are highly watched and important, especially for large companies. In addition, several companies are used as barometers of the state of the overall market or the US economy, which gives these measures even more weight. Ultimately, profits are an integral part of the American economy. stock market and ensure that companies disclose their financial statements in a way that does not leave investors or the public in the dark.

However, if you want to be purely technical and are true to the risks of technicals, it could be a low risk play to buy the dip and hope for the best with a limited risk of around 12%. Maybe…. just maybe…. inflation

Inflation

Inflation is defined as a quantitative measure of the rate at which the average price level of goods and services in an economy or country increases over a period of time. It is the rise in the general price level where a given currency is effectively buying less than it has in previous periods. In terms of valuation of strength or currencies, and by extension foreign currencies, inflation or its measures are extremely influential. Inflation stems from the global creation of money. This money is measured by the level of the total money supply of a specific currency, for example the US dollar, which is constantly increasing. However, an increase in the money supply does not necessarily mean that there is inflation. What leads to inflation is a faster increase in the money supply relative to the wealth produced (measured with GDP). This thus generates demand pressure on a supply that is not increasing at the same rate. The consumer price index then increases, generating inflation. How Does Inflation Affect Forex? The level of inflation has a direct impact on the exchange rate between two currencies on several levels. This includes purchasing power parity, which attempts to compare the different purchasing power of each country according to the general level of prices. By doing so, it helps to determine the country with the most expensive cost of living. The currency with the higher inflation rate consequently loses value and depreciates, while the currency with the lower inflation rate appreciates in the forex market. Interest rates are also impacted. Inflation rates that are too high push interest rates up, which has the effect of depreciating the currency on the exchange. Conversely, too low inflation (or deflation) pushes interest rates down, which has the effect of appreciating the currency on the foreign exchange market.

Read this term falls, the risk heats up and the price breaks above the 200-day moving average, tilting the bias further in the bullish direction. Relatively speaking, it’s not that far.

PS. If a 12% risk is too high, look to buy closer to the falling $33 over the next few days. Looking at the hourly chart below, the 100-hour MA is at $36.39. Buying near this level lowers your costs and would maintain a short-term bullish bias. The PSS breaking above the 200 hourly MA would be a short-term bullish tilt. The 200 hour MA is currently at $38.07.
