3/13 -

regular session update -

Intuitive Surgical trading above last week's high of 93.69... Next level of interest at 96.19 (ISRG) 95.04 +2.06:

note the volume  on today's move up
----------------

has bounced from the recent test of the October gap support and the 200-day ema...so now the question is can ISRG make a sustained run now that the long momentum players and trend followers may have left it for other high flyers:

volume by price chart helpful, using the weekly chart -




$95-96 next potential resistance....20-day ema, $95.75, also resides in that zone -

http://stockcharts.com/gallery/?isrg

minimum risk to $88-90

recent declining weekly volume trend

200-day ema tested for 5 consecutive days
(Friday's low was 9 cents above)

bearish crossover in play of the 5 vs. 21 week ema's for two weeks

four daily closes below $90 last week

note weekly RSI, MACD and CCI...of interest is the long-term structure of the weekly MACD

move below the 5-week ema for 5 weeks... 5-week ema now at $97.71

value of weekly PSAR sell is $132.00, and note the trend in distance of price from the PSAR

50-day sma and the 20-day ema have represented solid support for a few days

Friday was the largest daily volume candle in its history

price nearly reached $200, gaining 32% Friday

(note the usefulness of one buy signal shown above in March, 2007 when price and the other moving averages moved above the 15day sma)

weekly chart -



daily chart -

the 50day ema moved above the 200sma in February, and since then all dips to the 50day ema have been bought




the Cleveland Clinic has a good description of how ISRG's Da Vinci system is used in one application -
