Let’s Revisit $COST

My last post on $COST was here. In that post, I identified a near textbook bearish wedge that had developed. And unfortunately, that wedge never broke down and the stock rallied to new highs.

That new piece of information is telling: why didn’t the bearish structure break down?

Answer: the market may not be as bearish as we were expecting here. Given the potential for the markets as a whole to break up sharply here, we can reinterpret the structure on this stock as a large inverse, with the right shoulder probably complete.

Should this break up sharply, the target for this is over $700. We would like to see this “right shoulder” stay close to or above the “left shoulder.” Falling below the 12/2 low will begin to cast doubt on the interpretation.

This Well-Known Stock Is Set for a 30% Decline Over the Coming Weeks

Many names such as $PYPL and $TWTR have already suffered steep declines and are due for a bounce soon. It is better to look for shorting opportunities in names that haven’t yet been hit, and I found a good candidate. $COST has rallied in a clear 5-wave pattern leading to its all-time high in December of 2021.

From that peak it has had a sharp initial decline, followed by a well-formed bear flag that I believe is wrapping up now. I believe many of the tech names (such as the ones listed above) will recover soon, in—at a minimum—counter trend bounces, and while those are doing that, many names such as this one will suffer their first far more serious declines.

The minimum target for this coming decline is the top of the orange box, but it may also fall as deep as the lower end of the range, if not even further. I am looking for a 5-wave impulsive decline for intermediate (orange) C.
