Bulkowski's Guess (GES) Trading Quiz

Released 11/29/2021.

GES: Quiz

Below is a slider quiz to test your trading ability. Captions appear below the pictures for guidance, so be sure to scroll down far enough to read them.

 

1 / 3
chart pattern

What chart patterns can you find? Look for the following (if you find others, great!): symmetrical triangle, falling wedge, broadening top, triple bottom, big W.

The answer is on the next slide.
2 / 3
chart pattern

Price has broken out downward from the falling wedge.

Question 1: Do you buy or sell short the stock?
Question 2: What is your price target?
Question 3: What is your stop loss price?
See the next slide for answers.
3 / 3
chart pattern

Answer 1 (buy?): Sell short, if you dare, because of the downward breakout.

Answer 2 (target?): I would expect price to decline to the flag at A, a knot of support that might cause a pullback. After that, I would expect a continued decline because the odds favor it (53% of the time).

Answer 3: If price closes above the top trendline, then I would close out my position.

Price made a lower low the next day but then gapped up to close above the top trendline. That would be the exit signal. A downward breakout followed by a quick reverse is common behavior for falling wedges, since it happens 31% of the time. That may not sound like much until it happens to a stock you have shorted.

The End.
