By Michael Gable 

In terms of immediate opportunities, it is hard to make a case for doing much until after the US election. That way we can see how stocks are trading and which ones look to offer the greatest return. In the last few months, we have seen share prices looking great for a few days and then spend the rest of the week looking pretty ugly as the day-to-day noise causes havoc with markets. We anticipate that this time next week we will have some clearer direction and some more exciting opportunities to look at.

Having said all of that, what research can we come up with on the eve of the election? In this week's charting section, we have some updated charts on stocks that we have been positive on for a while. Once the short-term volatility is out of the way, there is no reason why these stocks cannot continue to march higher. Today we revisit Afterpay ((APT)).

We looked at the APT chart in mid-August and suggested that it was ready to rally again. It then came back in early September, as tech stocks in general took a breather. After that it started making higher lows again during that month and APT then went on to break the $100 level. During the last two weeks, we have noticed that it has not been sold off heavily after reaching that milestone. At the moment it is holding above the August peak, which is a bullish sign. It therefore looks as though APT is poised to build on these levels and get trending again. If it does fall under the August peak, then the next area of support would be around $70 – $80, which, in the greater scheme of things, is not a negative as the overall trend will still remain intact.
