$PCVX – PENDING: Power Play Order


The Fundamentals are pretty terrible, but it meets most of the criteria for a power play and fundamentals aren’t a big issue for these. There are two concerning things. First, we are not in a bull market and, second, the sideways movement out of the explosive move has lasted more than 6 weeks. It’s currently on week 9. I think the fact that we aren’t in a bull market is the most concerning thing about this, or any power play. That fact may lessen the chances of success, but it doesn’t mean it can’t work.

Stage Analysis

The explosive move was the transition from Stage 1 to 2. Prior to that, Stage 1 was over a year at 59 weeks. Within that time, it stayed in a relatively tight range of less than 40%.


The explosive move was 123.64% in just over a week, on the highest volume ever recorded. Since then, it’s gone mostly sideways for the past 9 weeks, which is a little longer than the criteria call for. Its widest range in that time has been less than 14% and has tightened up to just under 7%. Its showing nice VCP price and time contractions. The RS relative to the rest of the HC sector is increasing and price is contracting higher as the SPX has been pulling back.
