Possible Cycle Low For ATI Technologies

This Canadian high tech player (graphic chip maker) is showing an interesting chart entry as a long position.

Position:   Buy

The weekly chart (drawn March 10, 2003) shows several reasons why I favor ATI Technologies ( as a buy at this level. When various indicators show positive divergence to price action, it is often a good time to consider a long entry. In this case the MACD (moving average convergence/divergence), RSI (relative strength index) and stochastics all show a positive divergence to price action. This suggests a good likelihood of an upleg starting very soon.

Adding weight to this bullish consideration is the fact that we are probably at a cycle low here. Note the equidistant cycle lines drawn on the chart starting from 2000.

Upside projections taken from the daily chart suggest several targets. The first important one is the $6.32 mark which is the overhead 20-period EMA (exponential moving average) resistance. Once the stock can show strength above this test then the next level to watch is $6.85 - $7.16. This is the top Bollinger Band resistance and the 50-period EMA . (For clarity reasons the EMAs and Bollinger Bands are not shown on the chart.) Beyond that the $8 - $10 region will provide plenty of resistance as profit takers will cash in.

At any rate watch for any candlestick reversal patterns--such as evening stars, bearish engulfing or dark cloud cover to name a few-- along the way .
