Prescription for a Fall
- Posted by Greg Harmon

Many are jittery about the broad market but individual stocks are sending some clear signals. Two in the healthcare space are writing a prescription for a move lower, Express Scripts, $ESRX and Allscripts, $MDRX.
Express Scripts, $ESRX
Express Scripts, $ESRX, has been consolidating after a long run higher but is showing symptoms of a pullback. The Moving Average Convergence Divergence indicator (MACD) has been running negative for almost 2 months, with the Relative Strength Index (RSI) trending lower as well. Now the price, the most important piece, is testing support for the third time and from a lower high. Look for a break of 62 to start the next leg lower with a gap to fill to 56.83.
Allscripts, $MDRX, has a similar story. The MACD has just crossed to negative and the RSI is pulling back from a technically overbought condition. The 200 day Simple Moving Average (SMA) has been driving price lower and has now filled the gap and continues. Look for a break of support from the previous flag at 12.80 to retrace to 11.

Reviewing the Equity Indexes, Gold, Oil, Bonds, The Dollar, Foreign Markets and Volatility and assessing the upcoming week. This is delivered Saturday morning. On Sunday you get 5 exclusive trade ideas culled from reviewing over 900 individual charts. Additionally there are 5 more ideas that I offer high level analysis to the public, but then expand with detailed triggers, stops, support and resistance levels and profit targets and how to adjust them only to premium users.

I also offer 1-3 additional trade ideas daily, with the same detailed trading plan. These could also be good set ups from the charts but often are earnings related. Most of these mid week ideas are options focused. Many trades are proposed with both stock and options idea, and sometimes several options trades so you can choose according on your risk tolerance. Finally, you get access to me, to ask about these trades, the market or anything else.
