Looking at a weekly chart of Qualcomm (QCOM), I still see some upside potential toward the $73-to-$75 area.
With that in mind, I want to show you a pullback on the daily chart that has piqued my interest -- a decline that may offer a relatively low-risk buy entry.
There are a few things I like about this chart. First, we are looking at a nice general pattern of higher highs and higher lows, which is considered bullish. Second, Qualcomm is above both the 200-day and 50-day simple moving averages. That also suggests a strong stock. Now, this daily chart does show Qualcom coming off some key Fibonacci price-extension resistance, but that is a natural thing.
If this bullish pattern is to remain intact, Qualcomm will ideally hold above the $62.33 swing low. I'm seeing a key price support cluster above this high -- ranging between $63.45 and $64.89 -- that includes quite a few 100% or "symmetry" projections. We'll use these projections help us to get involved in the direction of the trend, comparing prior corrective declines with what I believe is a current correction.
So far a low has been made at $65.03, just above that key price cluster. This is close enough to have us start looking for a buy trigger, or an all-clear signal to enter the stock -- though we may also see a bit deeper downside correction into the listed zone.
If you do take a trigger on a 15- or 30-minute chart for an entry, you may want to give this one a little room: Place the stop either below the low end of the price cluster zone, or below the $62.33 swing low. As far as a target is concerned, I would like to shoot for the weekly target up at the $73-to-$75 area. If we don't see any triggers for an entry and Qualcomm breaks that same key support, I'll back off the buy side until I'm able to set it up again.
