There are 2 strong and valid reasons that I believe MPEL will up at least 3% today.
1st Reason: Mpel yesterday closing candlestick is showing a bullish harami pattern.
2nd Reason: This morning at 3.41 am, Bloomberg News just reported that Macau Revenue For January 2012 rises 35%. (The details of the news are per the below post)
Yesterday, I am glad that Mpel perform as per my expectation. If yesterday, Mpel continues to go down, then I will be in deep trouble. The past 2 days tumbled of more than 6% is to shake off the weak investor and for the heavy speculators to cover the long position.
I believe a new really and new uptrend will happen this morning. For a new investor, he or she would have sold his position when Mpel tumbled more than 6%, however, as for me, instead of selling my stock in Mpel, I buy another 200 stock of Mpel at the price of $11.13. I have used my emtire January salary to buy the 200 stock and now I am left with nothing to spend for February while waiting for my new salary. Is it worth the risk and the trouble. Yes! It is worth everything as I believe Mpel will continues to outperform in the market. For the near short term, it will match the price of MGM at $13.00 as I don't believe MGM should worth more than Mpel.
(Bullish Harami Explanation from Investopedia Website)
I have added another 200 stock yesterday, my total stock for Mpel currently stand at 6000.
Disclosure: Currently I have zero money in my Bank Account as I am using it all to purchase Mpel. I am thinking to use my credit card to help me go through my Feb expenses. I am currently heavily invested in Mpel stock of 6000 and I am expecting Mpel to rally to $15 in the near future and to $20 for a 90% gain by the end of this year. However, in between now and end of this year, I may sell and buy Mpel as I am an experience swing trader.
