Cypher D/W TF AA

BATS:AA   ALCOA CORP

This pattern has been forming for some time now, and I've been watching for any signs of strength to buy into this security as a long term play/investment. Unfortunately, I still cannot see the light at the end of the tunnel to warrant any serious investment; despite my reluctance to commit any size to this, a small technical play may be worth a punt.

Monitoring Alcoa             at around $7.70, it came to my attention that despite gaping up and looking for downside gains, it continued to be lifted into the close/open; Alcoa's reluctance to push any lower over a considerable time frame spanning at least 13 months, has instilled enough confidence/conviction in at least a temporary bottom being in place, and warrants a small long.

The trade is supported primarily by the completion of a Cypher pattern , confirmed by a bullish breach above the $8 handle last week. The meagre attempts at breaking through the 0.786 Fib. as well as the newly found buyers/short covering is enough reason to attempt a small technical long. The trade is further supported by the Federal Reserves reluctance to Taper this month. Whether you believe the taper is coming, or not, is truly irrelevant as you will find yourself sidelined out of excellent opportunities that present themselves.

The above being said, there are plenty of reasons for not buying into Alcoa             , including whether you truly believe that the global economies are on a path of sustainable self-sufficient growth to support Aluminium prices into the coming months and years ahead.

Trade Set-up:

Stop: $7.20/7.00
Entry: $8.30 and below at Daily EMAs located in the 8.08/8.16 region.
Target 1: $11.75
Target 2: $13.00
Target 3: $14.30
nice trade!

Conservative longs may wait to see this descending wedge resolve itself before executing buys.

Looks like a short term cypher, probably bullish on the 78.6

Nice structure indentification. The level $10 is a powerful level and the break and close above this level would likely confim the pattern.

Cheers, it should be noted the C point isn't quite right as it should technically have risen to $19.19; however the 0.786 on the XA seems to be holding the price, so will run with it.
