GE new take

ge april 21 2018

We thought might have hit bottom a little while ago. That might have been incorrect but it does not matter as you could get out of the trade breaking even, which I would not recommend under $16 to $19 or so.

There is something wrong with the count last time but I may be over-thinking this. There are a number of reasons why this may not be the bottom. The low back in 2009 was around $5 so this stock has risen $31-5=$26. It is “normal” for second wave corrections to retrace as much as 78% or even more of wave 1. In this case that would suggest a low of around $11. Next the count does not add up. My educated guess here is that we just completed waves 1,2 and 3 and therefore need to add a 4 and 5 before hitting bottom. Alternation here would favour a flat or triangle, which is an elongated flat, as shown. The third argument is the gap in the middle theory. There is no gap in this chart but the “thinnest” point is at about the $21 mark, or $10 from the top. A similar distance down again would bring us to $11 as well. Then wave 3 up can start.

Fundamentally GE cannot go bankrupt. It is at least as important as GM which did go bankrupt but was bailed out. It is too important militarily and it just will not happen. Which does not mean that you cannot lose a lot of money but it does mean that things are ok at the other side of the valley. Good luck.
