    Stockaholics Weekly T/A Charting Challenge Rules & Guidelines:

    1.) Participants will take turns each week to post up a chart.

    2.) Participants (including the chart picker) will need to then vote on the direction of the chart for the week (starting points from Friday's close), and will have up until 9:30am eastern time on the first trading day of the week. There will be a new poll up for each new week. Members who correctly predict the direction (Up or Down) of the chart by week's end will receive 10 points in the members leaderboard for that week.

    3.) Members who also provide some rationale for their direction vote (this can be brief) will be awarded another 2 points in the members leaderboard.

    4.) Members who simply "participate" in the challenge will receive 1 point for the week.

    Remember...the chart direction poll closes at the opening bell on the first trading day of the new week! So try to get those votes in ASAP!

    So, w/o getting into further ado have at it with the T/A on this week's charting challenge!

    (Chart to be posted in here sometime after the market closes on Friday.)

    OK, since I am the chart picker for next week, I thought I would go ahead and just post up the chart in here right now since I may not get a chance to do it over this coming weekend.

    Ticker: OSTK

    I've edited the first post here to add the dynamic daily and weekly charts.

    EDIT: Voting down on this one for this week.

    @Bigbear , a very interesting pick this week. I have been watching this stock, since their Big drop in 2018. I know they are invested in Crypto, and I have bought products on their website. I think they have potential to legitimately compete in this E-Commerce, Ever-Growing shopping world.

    When did they raise so much cash? I have always thought of OSTK as a future dead stock, but they are looking a bit better since the last I looked at them. Taking fundamentals out of the picture, technically it looks super bullish to me. Breaking out of a long term trend line on massive volume.

    I say UP

    Down,
    being hurt by the gov. shutdown- which temporarily prevents several cryptos from making moves (including one ETF-sort asset initiation being halted). The price jump was mainly due to "over-hypeness" of the new platform they released. I still believe they are a valuable co. with potential, yet the recent upward spike was undue in a timely matter- and this company needs to legitimately bring in solid Net Income to prove their potential (or allow Crypto to become as powerful and widespread as their supporters and backers pronounce it will one day become).

    UP, simply momentum is up after breaking a declining tops line
    [​IMG]
    Granted it was a weak close and indicators are overbought in lower time frames, so action on Monday could be more telling.
    Would not try to short this myself, 24M shares floated and 52% of it is short and 10M shares were traded on Friday. Even more could be traded on Monday, which I think would be very bullish. But if that volume is tapering then I wouldn't expect the huge up move.

    Nice change of character, but I think it'll go sideways next week, so I voted DOWN.

    UP [I, too, think it will trade sideways, but bias marginally upwards during the coming week. In the bigger picture, say a couple more weeks out, I think it'll be back down around 15 where it needs to consolidate a while. There's just way too much volume at these lower levels and each thrust up will just shake out more and more weak hands.]
