Price Uptrend Confirmed for CHWY

Yesterday, we looked at a Monthly Price Chart of Netflix, Inc., noting the stock’s 1-Month Price is trading above the 10-Month SMA.

Today’s chart is for Chewy Inc. (NYSE: CHWY).

Chewy, Inc., together with its subsidiaries, engages in the pure-play e-commerce business in the United States.

The company provides pet food and treats, pet supplies and pet medications, and other pet-health products, as well as pet services for dogs, cats, fish, birds, small pets, horses, and reptiles through its chewy.com retail website and mobile applications.

Now, the Daily Price Chart below shows that CHWY is in a price uptrend because the current price of CHWY is trading higher than it was exactly six months ago.

We know this thanks to the On Balance Volume (OBV) Chart, shown below the Daily Price Chart.

Here’s what you need to know about the OBV Line: it measures how much volume is either pushing the stock up, or down. Meaning, the volume of stock that’s being sold or bought.

Using a stock’s volume in this way can confirm an uptrend by reflecting that more people are buying the stock than are selling it (or vice versa for an downtrend). Take a look at the chart below…

We can see from the OBV chart shown above that the OBV line for CHWY is sloping up.

An up-sloping line indicates that the volume is heavier on up days and buying pressure is exceeding selling pressure.

Buying pressure must continue to exceed selling pressure in order to sustain a price uptrend.

So, OBV is a simple indicator to use that confirms the price uptrend and its sustainability.

The numerical value of the OBV line is not important. We simply want to see an up-sloping line to confirm a price uptrend, which is displayed in the chart above.

We’ll be sure to keep following Chewy, Inc. as the stock’s buying pressure exceeds it’s selling pressure and the price uptrend continues.

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

The Power of Options

On June 2, we highlighted CrowdStrike Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: CRWD), noting that CRWD’s OBV line was sloping up.

If you happened to have purchased CRWD shares on that day, you’d already be up 11.61%.

But… if you had purchased the right option contract, you would be up 33.9% in just three weeks’ time!

That’s the power of options.

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.
