NVDA Technical Analysis


NVDA opened trading yesterday at $71.49 which was up from the previous day’s trading close of $69.96. NVDA closed trading yesterday at $67.77 and spiked up after market to $77.55, equivalent to a 14% increase from the closing price. Taking a look at the daily chart we can see that we are in unchartered territory as NVDA is currently trading at all time highs. Taking a closer look at the daily chart we can see that before the spike up NVDA had already been in an overall upward trend dating back to May 12th when it traded at $35.57. AVID has a float of 509.1 million shares and traded 1.76 times the normal daily trading volume on Thursday. For trading purposes, I would like to see AVID open trading on Friday above $74.35 and if it does I would be looking to take a long position at the bell. My stop loss would be $0.50 from my entry position fearing anything more than that and the stock would start to fill in the gap up. My friend Ross over at Warrior Trading is applying his Day Trading Strategies to these types of stocks.
