GPN Hits 1-Year ‘Buy’ Signal Anniversary

Yesterday, we looked at a Daily Price Chart and an On Balance Volume Chart for Arch Capt. Grp. Ltd., noting that the stock has been in a price uptrend.

Today’s Chart of the Day is a Daily Price Chart for Global Payments, Inc. (NYSE: GPN).

Global Payments Inc. provides payment technology and software solutions for card, electronic, check, and digital-based payments. The company operates in three segments: North America, Europe, and Asia-Pacific.

Now, below is a Daily Price Chart for Global Payments, Inc.

Back in February 2019, the GPN 1-Month moving-average crossed above the 10-Month simple moving-average (SMA) indicating GPN is on a PowerTrend ‘buy’ signal (circled).


Guess what happened next…

Prices rose steadily for the next year.

If you had purchased GPN shares when the PowerTrend ‘buy’ signal occurred for the stock back in February 2019, when the stock was around $130.38, you’d be up 54.7% by now.

Not a bad profit for a less-than-a-year-and-a-half hold of a major retailer.

Now, as you can see, the 1-Month moving-average is still above the 10-month SMA. That means the bullish trend is still in play!

As long as the 1-Month price remains above the 10-month SMA, the stock is more likely to keep trading at new highs in the coming days and weeks.

We’ll be keeping our eye on this stock as it continues to trend upward so we’ll know the moment the market conditions shift and the stock begins to come back down.

Maximizing Our Profit Potential

Additionally, we’d like to talk about how a previous Chart of the Day stock has done…

On February 3rd, we highlighted Apple, Inc. (NYSE: AAPL), noting that AAPL stock had been making a series of 52-Week Highs since mid-October.

If you happened to have purchased AAPL shares on that day, you’d already be up 5.33%.

But… if you had purchased the right option contract, you would be up 72.62% in less than two weeks’ time!

That’s why we focus on leveraging options in my premium research trading and training service, PowerTrend Options.

My “X-Ray” system — based on pure, technical analysis —is what I’ve used to trade options, win international trading competitions, and support my family for the past 30 years.

Members of my service even have access to my most extensive training program ever…

A 30-day PowerTrend Academy, that uses videos, quizzes, and glossaries to help explain my system from every angle. That’s because I want you to see exactly what I’m doing — no secrets, no patented algorithms. Just the facts.

Not to mention, the service itself provides up to two trades every week.

Because I truly believe, and from personal experience, that one option trade has the power to completely change your life.

But we know that some people like to walk before they run… and so we designed a class just for them, called the Thunderbird Options Course. Complete with syllabus, videos, and quizzes. Check out the details if you haven’t yet!

Written By Chuck Hughes

Before Chuck Hughes won 10 Trading Championships, he was an accomplished Air Force pilot. In fact, he credits his success as a stock and options trader to his disciplined upbringing and career. When he was deciding between a career in the Navy and a career in the Air Force, the Navy told him he’d only have a 33% chance of flying jets. The Air Force gave him 100%. He liked those odds better. 35 years ago, Chuck had a wife, a young daughter, a son on the way, and a huge mortgage to afford. He didn’t want to give up on his lifelong dream and stop flying for a major commercial airline. He knew he needed to supplement his income during the 15 days a month he wasn’t flying. So he used his experience in discipline and math, and his understanding of finance and the stock markets (which he’d always been interested in,) and opened a $4,600 trading account. He made over $460,000 in profits his first two years of trading, and he hasn’t looked back since. When he was diagnosed with Meniere’s disease 15 years later, which commonly leads to vertigo…He knew his career as a pilot wouldn’t last much longer with those odds. But he didn’t have to scurry to find another gig, or panic about how his family would eat… He’d spent the last 15 years perfecting his system and raking in cash. As an options trader, Chuck does not let his emotions get in the way of his trading strategy. He adheres to disciplined and methodical options and stock trades. Because he respects the options game so highly, and understands the true freedom that financial solvency can bring, Chuck was able to design and refine his system and win those 10 Trading Championships. Put simply, Chuck Hughes’ trading strategies work, and in all types of market conditions. They’ve worked throughout the bull, bear, and flat markets America has seen in the last 30 years. Chuck Hughes has spent that time building a reputation as one of the most trustworthy options traders in the industry. His publishing group Legacy Publishing LLC was one of the few trading groups on the planet to have correctly predicted and profited from the 2008 financial crash .As a published author 16 times over, a 10-time Trading Championship winner, and an options-trading teacher for 25 years, he’s learned to trade and teach without an ego.
