Kimberly Clark (KMB) Wolfe wave

Kimberly Clark (KMB) is a swing trade I've been holding since the August lows but now it seems to be getting ahead of itself. Here is the exit strategy and even a short set-up if the market swoons. Wolfe waves are elegant when they work and this one is a classic set up.

My cost basis is 65.29 and I set my sell-stop on the long position at 70.50 (white trend line). The short set-up is good only for the next few trading sessions on this test of top. If KMB drops below the red trend line then I'll enter a short with a target at the green line or Oct 23rd, whichever comes first. There's a chance that KMB takes off to the upside in which case I'll ride it. If it pulls back it may just trade in a range between the white and red lines in which case I won't have a position. This strategy takes patience but feels great when it works...ie, a fun vanity trade.

  4. Unfortunately for those of you investing in stocks like Mcdonald's and Yum brands Apple computer Wallmart Wallgreens some of these companies do lots of their business in china you can expect only mediocre investment returns over time. The really great returns in these type of stocks were made decades ago when they were small unknow companies unlike today.
