YOKU and DANG Chinese ipo’s Chart Patterns Today

Two Chinese IPO’sToday: Youku.com (YOKU) & E-Commerce Dang Dang Inc.(DANG)

I didn’t play the $YOKU and $DANG ipo’s today but wanted to share with you some interesting intraday patterns

They really were a daytrader’s dream trade – Will look into next ipo’s to see if can use the same pattern

As you can see in the 5 minute charts below you can see an initial pop on both followed by a pull back to or just below the 50% fibonnaci retrace points

Then followed again by another push higher.  Look below the chart for further info on how I’ve played IPO’s in 2009

YOKU DANG 50% fibonnaci retrace levels

If you are interested to play IPO’s I found a strategy that worked well for me last year . Read my previous blog on $GM & other IPO’s to see the charts of  $GM $CCM $OPEN $MJN $DGI $TSLA   – Its best to wait 1 week or 2 weeks after the ipo for a selloff , when volume drys up and when the stock settles in a range , then buy it and play it as a swing ( was a pretty consistant strategy with exception of $AONE which sold off further) I’ll be watching these two ipo’s to see if that pattern works again or if we set up a new pattern then can look to apply it to future Chinese IPO’s

Here’s the link : Look to the bottom of the blog


Hope you find this info helpful
