The most recent confirmed buy signal for Jollibee Foods Corporation (JFC) appeared last December 4, 2019. That was the time when my 10SMACD combo and Momentum Power Indicator agreed to a bullish rating at the same time.
Did I find Jollibee’s price too cheap to ignore when it dropped to 300, 270, 220, and near 180?
You don’t buy the dips just because it’s a blue-chip. You buy the dips because there’s a confirmed buy signal.
Because all data-driven probabilities were all pointing to one thing back then: that the downtrend was more than likely to continue. So it did.
The True Market Sentiment (of the top 10 players of Jollibee) gave me a bearish rating when the price hit those price points I mentioned above.
That validated my conviction to not hurry and wait for the confirmed buy signals based on my Evergreen Strategy.
So, last December 4, 2019, my 10SMACD and Momentum Power Indicator showed a confluence to a bullish rating as a confirmed buy signal.
The immediate support is near 216 while the resistance is near 238.

The confirmed buy signal is still up for Jollibee as of the time of writing this analysis.
Don’t buy at any random price that you see on the ASK column.
Buy within the dominant range instead. The dominant range is the price range that got the biggest volume and the highest number of trades.
Once your buy order is executed, calculate your trailing stop immediately. Your trailing stop will preserve your capital, protect your gain, and prevent unbearable losses.
For those of you already have Jollibee but would like to top up, you may also top up within the dominant range. Make sure that you do an upward adjustment on your trailing stop every time JFC registers a higher prevailing price.
You can use my trailing stop calculator.
Even if the ascent in price is more than likely to continue, don’t expect it to register a green candlestick every single day. For one, the prevailing True Market Sentiment as of the time of writing this analysis is neutral. The top 10 players’ buying average is lower than the top 10 players’ selling average. There’s an intraday tug-of-war between the bears and the bulls. It is for this reason why I strongly suggest the use of a trailing stop.
Don’t just be an expert when it comes to finding buy signals. Be well-prepared, as well, when laying out exit strategies.
