    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.)

    Sitting right on the 50 day but below the 200day. Supposed to be a safe play for consumer staples and healthcare right now, but I think the support may fail.

    I'm with Stoch, DOWN. The short term trend is down. It'll probably test next week's pivot and the monthly pivot but then I think the odds favor down. But it just started Phase B of trading range, a trendless unpredictable phase. So this is a WAG.

    UNH really fought the downsweep of the broader markets last week, especially Thursday and Friday when the price swung widely but closed tight to the open. It suggests underlying demand that will move the price higher this week when the markets turn green. So I'm voting...

    I don't think it'll make it above 252.xx
    Not feeling good about this until it overcomes the July 31 candle...in spite of MOH/CNC a couple of other health care companies I know were guiding up for next quarter.

    Voting DOWN.
