    Weekly Mystery Chart & Technical Analysis Challenge (2/26-3/2)

    Congrats to @Onepoint272 the Stockaholics Weekly Mystery Chart Winner for the Week of (2/19-2/23)!

    *Link to Previous Weekly Mystery Chart Thread*

    Weekly Mystery Chart Chart & Technical Analysis Challenge Rules:

    1.) I will post a chart stripped of its price and indicators.

    2.) Members are encouraged to guess the mystery chart for the week. The first contestant to correctly identify the mystery chart will receive 10 points in the members leaderboard. You cannot duplicate someone's mystery chart guess. Only the first person to correctly identify the mystery chart wins the 10 points. The mystery chart ticker and winner of the 10 points will be revealed sometime on Monday after the market opens.

    3.) Members will also need to vote on the direction of the mystery chart for the week (meaning Friday's close), you will have up until the 9:30am eastern market open on the first trading day of the week. There will be a new poll up for each new week. Members who correctly predict the direction of the mystery stock (Up or Down) will receive 5 points in the members leaderboard for the week.

    4.) Members who also provide some rationale for their direction vote (this can be brief) will be awarded another 2 points in the members leaderboard.

    5.) All members who "participate" will receive 1 point for the week.

    6.) The member who correctly guesses the mystery chart for the week will also get exclusive rights to pick out the next mystery chart for following week's challenge as well as a couple of hints of your choice (you would need to PM me your ticker so that I can have it posted for next week's pick! You would have until Friday of that week to send it in).

    7.) We will only be using 1-year daily charts for all mystery charts, unless otherwise stated.

    8.) Stocks that have earnings or ex-div dates in the coming week are not permitted as mystery charts for the competitions.

    9.) In the case of a no-winners week where not one member was able to correctly identify the mystery chart for the week, the previous week's winner (chart picker) will once again have the rights to pick out the mystery chart for the following week.

    10.) These are just some rules to get us started for now. If you guys see anything that we need to add or tweak here please do let us know!

    Remember...the direction poll closes at the opening bell on Monday, February 26th! So try to get those votes in ASAP!

    So, w/o getting into further ado here is your mystery chart for this week!

    Bearish for the coming week, although nice slow-n-steady rise it looks extended from its usual pace.

    i'm going with down for this week also

    looks like it printed a new high but wasn't really able to clear it convincingly...looks a bit overextended to me so thinking lower for this upcoming week.

    Thanks for your thoughts on this guys.

    I just sold this on that hypodermic last Wednesday. They report after the close this coming Tuesday. Without seeing Monday and Tuesday's action, before the ER, I'm not sure I'd put money on this call, but I'm going to say UP. It has cause built for an effect to $29. I expect it'll retrace a little more Monday and Tuesday, to as much as say $19.80, and then Wednesday, it'll reach for the that historical swing high of $23.44. But that will be an upthrust action as the smart money won't be able to resist taking profits.

    In real life I'll wait to call it on Tuesday and then if I get back in, take what the market gives.

    As for the rest of you clowns out there (sorry Emmett) please enter your best guess on the direction of ETSY this coming week.

    You can earn "points", "miles", maybe even a trip to Aruba, and if you guess next weekend's mystery chart by Steven Burt, then you too will get to choose a chart and get the forum's aggregate opinion on it. At the end of the day, you can be the thought leader, as we build consensus together; it's a win-win for everybody. o_O

    Perhaps for some, another avenue of persuasion would be more effective....like a simple request to take your best shot, your best guess, to just call it, up or down, heads or tails....you have nothing to lose and only the satisfaction of calling one right.

    So, please call it, I can't call it for you.

    I'll vote UP it looks bullish. It broke out of the downtrend, coinciding with breaking above the 20 ma on 2/13, and there have been two healthy green days (2/13 and 2/16) on which price has not gone halfway back on those candles.

    I think what will happen is there's resistance at 22, then ER will push slightly above 22. Then watch to see if people are unloading or holding.

    Thanks RG, I'd forgotten that someone else used the Dr. Strangelove avatar. I think I'll change it......to Taryl Dactal; I'm a big fan.

    Bot back half of my position just before the ER at $21.01. I'll buy more on a retracement. Point & Figure target is $30.40.
