Taking A Chance With Another Company Based In China

Here's one company that could take the US markets by storm.

Security:   JD
Position:   Buy

Alibaba (BABA), a Chinese company, is winning strongly on the US stock market. Is it time to look at other companies from China that are listed on the US stock exchange as a solid investment? On October 31, 2014, JD Com, Inc. announced that it plans to release its unaudited third quarter 2014 financial results on November 17, 2014, before the market opens. Looking at a chart, do you take the risk and buy the share before the financial results are announced?

Figure 1. To Buy Or To Buy? On this daily chart of JD are four strategies that are suggesting a buy.

The chart in Figure 1 is a daily chart suggesting a buy based on four strategies shown below the Vote line. The chart also shows two indicators, the INDJAK indicator and the 14-period relative strength index (RSI), and both are in a buy mode. The Advisor rating shown on the chart is 61, which is a good rating.

Figure 2. Looking For Confirmation. On this daily chart you see how the share price rose , fell, and then started moving up again. All signs still point to a move up, at the moment.

The chart in Figure 2 is a daily chart showing how the share price rose with uncertainty in an Elliott Wave count from $19.94 on May 23, 2014 to $33.10 by August 27, 2014. The share price then fell to $22.68 by October 14, 2014 and started to move up as the RSI reached oversold levels and struggled to give a buy signal. The Elliott Wave count suggested that the share price has completed a WAVE I and WAVE II. This count is purely speculative and could change as the share price moves down the road. You should never forget that an Elliott Wave count is purely a signpost in the wilderness and could change at any time as the share prices changes its pattern. However, the share price has given a JM Internal Band buy, suggesting strength. The JM Internal Band is a 15-period simple moving average offset by 2% positive and 2% negative. A move above the upper band suggests a buy, and a move below the lower band a sell.

I have always preferred to purchase a share when it moves into an Elliott Wave III, because a wave three is normally equal to or greater than a wave one. With WAVE I equal to $13.16 (33.10-19.94=13.16) I expect WAVE III to rise to $35.84 or greater (22.68+13.16=35.84). With the chart in Figure 1 suggesting a buy, and with the JM Internal Band suggesting a buy, and finally — if the Elliott Wave count is correct — I would be a buyer of the share.
