Finding Pullbacks in MarketSmith


In this week’s webinar, we discussed looking for pullbacks to significant moving averages as an alternative entry point. Institutions tend to support stocks at key moving averages such as the 50 and 200 day line.

If you miss a breakout, don’t give up and just forget about the stock. The stock could pullback to give you another opportunity to initiate your position. 

Pullbacks also create an opportunity to add to your position. In “How to Make Money in Stocks,” William O’Neil provides many examples of this type of price action. One of the examples used is Priceline (PCLN) in 2007:
