Email us at info@compoundtrading.com anytime with any questions about any of the swing trades listed below. Or, if we get bogged down private message Curtis in trade room or direct message him on Twitter. Market hours are tough but we endeavor to get back to everyone after market each day.

Notices:

As I wrote in the previous, we just came off a blow-out July swing trading performance so I am hoping we repeat that in August.

This report is 1 of 4 weekly.

We will categorize our coverage soon as we are following more stocks weekly than we expected when we first started the service.

When managing your trades with the weekly reports keep in mind that you will have to invest an hour or two a week to check the indicators mentioned for buy and sell triggers. I was asked recently why we do not usually (although we do sometimes) include precise entry and exit points. The reason is simple, they don’t work – those services have terrible results.

Swing trading success, even with a service, does require “some” maintenance on the part of the user, although the new live alert service will take much of that burden off the user as we know many of our users have busy lives. It is the indicators lining up that signal a trade long entry or an exit. In our case rely heavily on MACD on daily or weekly (or Stoch RSI and Moving averages) but indicators we are basing our trade entry and exits on are listed with each trade so any user that does even moderate trade management will know when the indicator(s) have turn with or against the trade.

Intra-week you can always DM myself on Twitter (@curtmelonopoly), visit me on Discord (http://discord.gg/2HRTk6n) or email me (info@compoundtrading.com) with specific questions regarding trades you are considering for assistance.

It is critical however that you attend to the maintenance of your signals at least once a week if not twice and set stops and preferably alarms so that intra-week you can enter or exit. If nothing else you can always book some coaching time and I’ll assist also (although we are at a point of waiting list for the coaching, at minimum you can get on list or for immediate help as I said please DM or email).

IF WE DON’T GET BACK TO YOU RIGHT AWAY it is usually because we are pressured with deadlines or are trading.

Stock Pick Coverage:

$NFLX

Aug 18 – Trading 166.10. Indicators all pointing down and sitting on natural support. Waiting for indicators to turn.

Aug 7 – Trading 180.46 after its post earning’s break out. MACD turned down and will wait for it and other indicators to turn up before considering an entry.

July 24 – Closed premarket 188.40 from 158.20. Will watch for a re-enter pending some ER considerations early this week. Sentiment is pensive imo. Could go either way in market – generally speaking.

July 12 – Trading 158.20. Will watch here over its 50 ma and if 20 ma is about to breach 50 with price above and other indicators line up I will alert an add.

July 5 – Trading 146.17. Long from 159.35 200 shares on the 26th of June. Unfortunately thats where it turned down and now MACD is near bottom. 200 MA however is at 135.35 and that is possible. Understand that when I take an entry it is normally no more than 1/5 sizing until a trade proves itself out so I can usually take the down draft if required.

June 26 – Trading 158.33.

$NFLX pull back may be over MACD could cross up with SQZMOM and Stoch RSI trend up.On watch and I may take a long entry in premarket today.

May 31 – Trading 163.20. 148.40 entry. Stop set at 158.00 now. If price tests 20 MA on daily but doesn’t take out stop I will add and alert live.

May 3 – April 25 148.40 Long 500 shares April 25 when MACD turned up per below. Trading 156.28. MACD trending up, SQZMOM trending up and Stoch RSI at top and may come off short term – so a short term turn down is possible here. Will likely re-add when STOCH RSI comes off and turns back up as long as MACD is trending up still and has room to top.

April 24 – Trading 142.87. Watching.

April 19 – Trading 143.75 – waiting for MACD to turn up.

April 10 – We closed flat 145.50. Trading 142.80. Waiting for MACD, Stoch RSI, SQZMOM to turn green for entry long.

April 4 – March 29 we entered 145.50 500 shares when MACD turned up per watch trigger below. Stop is at flat at entry and we will re-enter if we have to. Will look at adding pending triggers – will advise.

$NFLX Live chart with indicators https://www.tradingview.com/chart/NFLX/ozKJQ8t4-NFLX-March-29-we-entered-swing-trade-145-50-when-MACD-turned-t/

March 27 – MACD has been flat or turned down since last post. Looking close at MACD turn up and entry this week.

March 20 – The only thing that concerns me is the price staying above approximately 145.05 as a low on any given day. I may also look for that in addition to indicators lists below. Same thing with this one, exit when MACD turning down. Chances are high I will enter long early week.

$AXP – American Express

July 24 – Trading 85.59.

July 14 – Trading 85.33. Earnings in 5 days. On high watch for after earnings.

July 5 – Trading 85.10. Trading in 52 week break out straight price action with no end in site so I can’t justify an entry, however, if I was managing trades on a minute by minute basis these are good to try and keep a short leash on. Anyway, waiting for a pullback to assess.

June 26 – Trading 82.22. Indicators are starting to cool a bit on daily – waiting for a pull back turn.

June 18 – $AXP Testing 52 week highs near break out stoch RSI peaking MACD trend up and SQZMOM trend up. Bullish. This is a break out play and I may enter a 1/5 size and add at pull back. Watching the 20 MA breaching 50 and 100 ma’s and vol spike. Very bullish.

May 17 – Trading 78. Sitting on 200 MA on weekly. On daily price is under 20 and 50 MA with MACD turned down. Watching.

May 9 – Trading 78.27. Closed 78.74 May 4 when MACD crossed down from 78.01 long. We still like this stock so we are watching close for indicators to turn back up.

May 3 – Trading 79.54. Holding long while MACD trends up and price above entry and 20 MA is above 50 MA. Stoch RSI is coming off so we expect some downward pressure short term.

April 24 – Trading 79.63. Long 78.01 500 shares April 20 when MACD turned up. Watching for MACD, Stoch RSI to remain, and SQZMOM to turn green for possible add.

$AXP, Swing, Trading, Stock, Chart

$AXP Swing Trade Going Well. MACD turned up for long 78.01 test.

April 19 – Trading 75.50. MACD getting close to bottom. On watch for MACD cross up.

April 10 – Trading 77.77. Waiting on Stoch RSI to curl up, MACD to cross up and SQZMOM to turn green for long.

April 4 – $AXP American Express. So close. SQZMOM about to turn, MACD cross on deck just need PTPTRR to line up. Need volume & power. #swingtrading $AXP Price Trigger Power Trade Risk Reward – PTPTRR #trading Over the Wall!

$AXP, Swing, Trading, Chart

$AXP American Express. So close. SQZMOM about to turn, MACD cross on deck just need PTPTRR to all line up. Need volume and power. #swingtrading

March 27 – MACD has turned down and SQZMOM is red and negative but Stoch RSI is starting to curl – waiting for that MACD to take an entry.

March 20 – This is a trend play. The only thing you have to do is manage your entry point and risk. Wait for indicators to confirm next leg up about to start and take long entry. When MACD turns down on daily that is your exit. I really like this one, especially because MA’s are all on right side (aligned) and trend reversal is in place.

$AXP Setting up for next possible leg up. Wait for MACD SQZMOM Stoch RSI to turn up. Will likely test near 100 MA at min 50MA.

Aug 7 – Trading 16.64. Same.

$TAN

Aug 18 – Trading 21.24 with indicators trending down. Waiting on a turn.

Aug 7 – Trading 21.83. Break-out may be slowing. MACD, Stoch RSI and SQZMOM trending down. Will wait on pullback to an MA that it bounces off with MACD turn and assess.

Aug 7 – Trading 15.13. Earnings in 1 day. Waiting.

$TWLO

Aug 18 – Trading 30.20 with indicators indecisive. Watching.

Aug 7 – Trading 29.20. Under 200 MA and 20 MA with MACD trending down. Will wait for MACD to turn up before considering a long position.

July 25 – Trading 30.99 testing 200 MA from underside with ER in 23 days. Very interesting set-up developing here now. On Watch.

July 14 – Trading 28.16 and 200 MA is getting near overhead so it could be ready sometime moderately soon.

July 5 – Trading 28.97. Now indicators pointing down. Not an easy stock to read. Watching.

June 26 – Trading 30.00 in premarket. All indicators are turned up but I just don’t trust the chart without historical. The alert below on June 9 turned out positive I just couldn’t execute.

June 18 – Trading 26.87 With MACD on daily turned up and testing natural resistance. Turns out per below it was a decent short term long. Unsure.

June 9 – Trading 25.49 The indicators on the 60 min say you could go long with a decently strong thesis (not enough chart history for Daily or Weekly chart), however, considering the short history price action I will wait – I think it is accumulating and the chart possibly repairing.

May 31 – Trading 24.48. Watching.

May 23 – Trading 25.00. Watching for bottom bounce to form. MACD up on daily right now.

May 17 –  Trading 24.53. Waiting on MACD turn cross up on daily before anything.

May 9 – Trading 23.50. See below. Not ready.

May 3 – Trading 23.70. Closed 33.57 1000 shares before earnings on a 29.60 buy. Never hold through earnings unless you are unusually confident (yes we did recently with $GOOGL and $AMZN but very unusual for us to do that). Anyway, watching now. Downdraft was intense from forward guidance.

April 24 – Trading 30.82. Holding 1000 shares 29.60.

April 19 – Trading 30.51. April 12 MACD turned up opened long 29.60 1000 shares.

$TWLO, Swing, Trading

$TWLO Swing Trade going well. Trading 30.51. April 12 MACD turned up opened long 29.60 tight stop.

April 10 – Trading 28.40. Stoch RSI curling up, waiting on MACD cross and SQZMOM to turn green for long.

April 4 – No change.

March 27 – Price failed when it had to poke through 100 MA and continue – it failed and is on its way (possibly) to the previous low. So here, as with $VRX we employ patience – but get ready because the long in this one will be decent. Use the indicators noted below.

March 20 – Looks like bottom may be in. It is trending up. Looking for 100 MA to cross down under 20 MA (pinching now) and price to trade above 20 MA for long. Be sure to wait for MACD to confirm also first.

$TWLO Bottom Play on Watch. 100 MA needs to cross 20 MA with price over them. Stoch RSI pinch, MACD pinch, SQMOM turning up not green.

July 25 – Trading 138.53 testing highs. Looks like it’s going to break higher (high probability anyway). On watch now for confirmation and power.

July 5 – Trading 131.01. Indicators all pointing down. Waiting for a turn to assess.

June 26 – Trading 138.30. $WYNN just got its 200 MA on weekly. Stoch RSI on weekly is crossed down with other indicators a buy. Will wait for Stoch RSI to cross up before assessing a long.

June 9 – Trading 134.73. MACD turned up on 7th and it got the pop we were thinking would come. Watching for follow through and possible long today. On high watch also.

May 31 – Trading 126.30  Watching for MACD to turn up.

May 23 – Trading 125.11. Watching for set up.

May 17 – Trading 126.91 coming up on underside of 200 MA test on weekly. MACD on daily is about to cross up. Will wait for MACD on daily and assess.

May 9 – Stopped flat on May 5, 2017. Watching SQZMOM, Stoch RSI, MACD, volume indicators now for a turn.

May 3 – Trading 125.55. Long 122.56 April 25 when MACD turned up (per below) and watching for continuation in MACD and price. Will exit if MACD turns down or price hits our entry. We may even add. It looks good.

April 24 – Trading 114.89. Watching.

April 19 – Trading 115.95. MACD trending down. Waiting for bottom and turn up. It has a ways to go.

April 10 – Closed 500 shares Friday 117.20. Trading 116.50. Watching MACD, Stoch RSI, SQZMOM for reset at bottom and turn for re-entry.

April 4 – We triggered a stop at flat March 27 and had a re-entry at 111.04 when we looked at it again for 500 shares. Currently trading at 116.00 and we are watching MACD.  Which is currently at top. We may exit as MACD turns down and re-enter when MACD turns back up. Alternatively we may ride the MACD turn down as long as our original entry isn’t triggered as stop and when MACD turns back up add to position. Both are valid and we are undecided.

March 26 – We took a long position at 110.93 for 500 share start on March 21. HOWEVER, we have a stop at our entry price (due to current market sentiment) and it is currently trading at 111.92. Careful with this one.

March 20 – This isn’t easy to swing but is so hot it would be foolish to ignore, so discipline like with so many other plays in the current market is required. Seeing it hold 110.00 for a full day with indicators in line would put me in a long position.

$WYNN 200 MA needs to cross 100 MA, trade over 110 full day. Stoch RSI peaking, MACD up, SQMOM up.

Notices:

As I wrote in the previous, we just came off a blow-out July swing trading performance so I am hoping we repeat that in August.

This report is 1 of 4 weekly (we just split up this report in to two to make the file size more manageable and we have a new group of swing stocks we are covering that will round out a 5th weekly report).

We will categorize our coverage soon as we are following more stocks weekly than we expected when we first started the service.

Also with end of quarter here you can expect a report clean-up and PL statements to be released (we will file in a depository all old reports and PL’s for reference).

Swing Trading Quarterly Performance P/L Report Mar 12, 2017… https://compoundtrading.com/swing-trading-quarterly-performance-pl-report-mar-12-2017-amzn-googl-gdx-cbmx-sxl-juno-trch/ … $GOOGL, $AMZN, $GDX, $CBMX, $SXL, $JUNO, $TRCH .. more.

When managing your trades with the weekly reports keep in mind that you will have to invest an hour or two a week to check the indicators mentioned for buy and sell triggers. I was asked recently why we do not usually (although we do sometimes) include precise entry and exit points. The reason is simple, they don’t work – those services have terrible results.

Swing trading success, even with a service, does require “some” maintenance on the part of the user, although the new live alert service will take much of that burden off the user as we know many of our users have busy lives. It is the indicators lining up that signal a trade long entry or an exit. In our case rely heavily on MACD on daily or weekly (or Stoch RSI and Moving averages) but indicators we are basing our trade entry and exits on are listed with each trade so any user that does even moderate trade management will know when the indicator(s) have turn with or against the trade.

Intra-week you can always DM myself on Twitter (@curtmelonopoly), visit me on Discord (http://discord.gg/2HRTk6n) or email me (info@compoundtrading.com) with specific questions regarding trades you are considering for assistance.

It is critical however that you attend to the maintenance of your signals at least once a week if not twice and set stops and preferably alarms so that intra-week you can enter or exit. If nothing else you can always book some coaching time and I’ll assist also (although we are at a point of waiting list for the coaching, at minimum you can get on list or for immediate help as I said please DM or email).

IF WE DON’T GET BACK TO YOU RIGHT AWAY it is usually because we are pressured with deadlines or are trading.

Stock Pick Coverage

$NFLX

Aug 7 – Trading 180.46 after its post earning’s break out. MACD turned down and will wait for it and other indicators to turn up before considering an entry.

July 24 – Closed premarket 188.40 from 158.20. Will watch for a re-enter pending some ER considerations early this week. Sentiment is pensive imo. Could go either way in market – generally speaking.

July 12 – Trading 158.20. Will watch here over its 50 ma and if 20 ma is about to breach 50 with price above and other indicators line up I will alert an add.

July 5 – Trading 146.17. Long from 159.35 200 shares on the 26th of June. Unfortunately thats where it turned down and now MACD is near bottom. 200 MA however is at 135.35 and that is possible. Understand that when I take an entry it is normally no more than 1/5 sizing until a trade proves itself out so I can usually take the down draft if required.

May 3 – April 25 148.40 Long 500 shares April 25 when MACD turned up per below. Trading 156.28. MACD trending up, SQZMOM trending up and Stoch RSI at top and may come off short term – so a short term turn down is possible here.

March 27 – MACD has been flat or turned down since last post. Looking close at MACD turn up and entry this week.

March 20 – The only thing that concerns me is the price staying above approximately 145.05 as a low on any given day. I may also look for that in addition to indicators lists below. Same thing with this one, exit when MACD turning down. Chances are high I will enter long early week.

April 4 – $GSIT finally cooling off and coming back to earth. Watching that MACD very close for a turn up (after it returns to bottom hopefully).

Mar 27 – Sure enough, it was on its way to the 20 MA this past week and stopped short and got some lift and closed Friday sitting on 8 ema. Will wait for it to line up.

Mar 20 – The reason I have this on the list is because as a break-out stock it is about as clean as they come, however, break out stocks come with risk. So you have two options (and shorting right now isn’t one), you can either wait for it to get near a 20 MA test and go long when other indicators line up or open a short time-frame chart and trade it. I will be waiting for the 20 MA test.

May 3 – Trading 79.54. Holding long while MACD trends up and price above entry and 20 MA is above 50 MA. Stoch RSI is coming off so we expect some downward pressure short term.

March 27 – MACD has turned down and SQZMOM is red and negative but Stoch RSI is starting to curl – waiting for that MACD to take an entry.

March 20 – This is a trend play. The only thing you have to do is manage your entry point and risk. Wait for indicators to confirm next leg up about to start and take long entry. When MACD turns down on daily that is your exit. I really like this one, especially because MA’s are all on right side (aligned) and trend reversal is in place.

$AXP Setting up for next possible leg up. Wait for MACD SQZMOM Stoch RSI to turn up. Will likely test near 100 MA at min 50MA.

March 27 – Very close now. SQZMOM just turned green, MA’s are starting to line up but not all yet, Stoch RSI is turned down at top of range so I would like to see it at bottom when we enter and the MACD is turned up. So we’re waiting for the MA’s to line up and the Stoch RSI to be near or at bottom curling up (ideally).

March 20 – I will enter a long when price above 20 50 100 200 MA’s and will likely wait for the 200 MA to cross 100 MA (although not absolute). Like with all others I will exit when MACD turns down.

This is one of those where we are early. In other words the price isn’t above all MA’s yet. So one could take the trade as long as MACD is up and preferably long entry timed when 20 MA is about to breach 50 MA and price is above. But watch out for the 200 MA above.

Mar 27 – $TAN chart is now “broken” and price is on its way to the lower pivot around 16.44. All indicators are pointing to down. It closed Friday at 17.29. So we will keenly watch it as it nears the lower pivot and see if the indicators line up for a long trade. If it lost lower pivot  we may even consider a short side entry pending indicators.

Mar 20 – Nice reversal play if it turns out. In addition to below watch the 200 MA as resistance if you go long.

We are not entering yet but may at any second. Again it is an early trade because you want price above the 200 MA and 20 MA to breach 20 MA that is perfect timing (with MACD trending up). But many people take these early at this point. Refer to considerations noted above with $TAN also. Same set-up.

March 20 – This was looking like it was going to curl up last week and bounce but it failed. A great example of carefully watching a falling knife indicators before taking a long position. Use patience and when all indicators in play take a long.

July 25 – Trading 30.99 testing 200 MA from underside with ER in 23 days. Very interesting set-up developing here now. On Watch.

July 14 – Trading 28.16 and 200 MA is getting near overhead so it could be ready sometime moderately soon.

July 5 – Trading 28.97. Now indicators pointing down. Not an easy stock to read. Watching.

June 26 – Trading 30.00 in premarket. All indicators are turned up but I just don’t trust the chart without historical. The alert below on June 9 turned out positive I just couldn’t execute.

June 18 – Trading 26.87 With MACD on daily turned up and testing natural resistance. Turns out per below it was a decent short term long. Unsure.

June 9 – Trading 25.49 The indicators on the 60 min say you could go long with a decently strong thesis (not enough chart history for Daily or Weekly chart), however, considering the short history price action I will wait – I think it is accumulating and the chart possibly repairing.

March 20 – Looks like bottom may be in. It is trending up. Looking for 100 MA to cross down under 20 MA (pinching now) and price to trade above 20 MA for long. Be sure to wait for MACD to confirm also first.

April 19 – Trading 115.95. MACD trending down. Waiting for bottom and turn up. It has a ways to go.

April 10 – Closed 500 shares Friday 117.20. Trading 116.50. Watching MACD, Stoch RSI, SQZMOM for reset at bottom and turn for re-entry.

April 4 – We triggered a stop at flat March 27 and had a re-entry at 111.04 when we looked at it again for 500 shares. Currently trading at 116.00 and we are watching MACD.  Which is currently at top. We may exit as MACD turns down and re-enter when MACD turns back up. Alternatively we may ride the MACD turn down as long as our original entry isn’t triggered as stop and when MACD turns back up add to position. Both are valid and we are undecided.

March 26 – We took a long position at 110.93 for 500 share start on March 21. HOWEVER, we have a stop at our entry price (due to current market sentiment) and it is currently trading at 111.92. Careful with this one.

March 20 – This isn’t easy to swing but is so hot it would be foolish to ignore, so discipline like with so many other plays in the current market is required. Seeing it hold 110.00 for a full day with indicators in line would put me in a long position.

$WYNN 200 MA needs to cross 100 MA, trade over 110 full day. Stoch RSI peaking, MACD up, SQMOM up.

$XME

Aug 7 – Trading 30.54. Testing 200 MA support with MACD trending down. Will wait for MACD to turn up.

July 23 – Trading 31.37. Holding over 200 MA but indicators look messy. Watching.

July 14 – Trading 30.94. Holding over 200 MA with indicators trending up. Watching close.

July 5 – Trading 30.07 The indicators all look moderately positive here and price has the 200 MA. On close watch.

April 24 – Trading 29.79. Watching.

April 19 – Trading 29.48. Close flat 30.59 on the 12th. Testing 200 MA now. Watching for Stoch RSI to turn up, MACD to turn up and SQZMOM to turn green for long.

April 10 – Trading 30.84 holding. Long at 30.59. Tight stop.

April 5 – We opened a tight long position (so stop will be tight because you can always re-enter and metals charts still have to confirm so we are a tad early here) long 30.59 500 shares will add if it confirms and will cut bait if it comes off at most 2% and re-enter. Indicators look good BUT we are early. Use caution until metals etc confirm.

$XME, Swing, Trading, Alerts

$XME Metals and Mining ETF Above 21 ema 8 ema 20 MA 200 MA MACD turned up SQZMOM turned green today

March 27 – Price action has been poor since last report, the 200 MA is just below price now so we are going to see if the indicators line up for a bounce long position.

March 20 – MACD is pinching and about to turn up, also waiting for price above 20 MA. This is a great looking chart and an argument could be made that a long position before everything lines up as I noted is sound. It’s a great looking chart because MACD is bottom (for clarity), so when it turns if all other indicators look good there should be room for a decent trade. Caution should be noted that now after having gone through a number of charts this evening the market is at a decision so any swing trades should be considered at length and stops should be tight IMO.

April 5 – $URRE isn’t as close to a buy as $XME above, HOWEVER, the SQZMOM did signal green today and the MACD is slightly turning up! So it is on HIGH WATCH now!

March 27 – Almost a replay from last week (the indicators), so we remain patient and watch.

March 20 – Like so many of the charts this week, there is indecision. However, if the indicators line up this has excellent upside potential. The MACD pinching at the bottom is key IMO.

March 27 – The 50 has crossed the 100 and the 20 the 200 to downside – this is very bearish in the near term. Watching. It does qualify as a short and best when MACD at top turning down and Stoch RSI at top turning down with confirmation of price action and MA’s.

March 20 – MACD pinching, watching for it to turn up, Needs 200 day and to trade above 20 MA for long or it becomes a short.

$SLX, watch, chart

$SLX On watch for SQZMOM to turn green and MACD to turn up. Close.

March 27 – As with $XLE above this also qualifies as a short (pending short term indicators lining up when you take the position). Price lost the 100 MA and the indicators are negative – very bearish. Watching.

March 20 – MACD is pinching on the turn back up – waiting for it to turn up and 45.50 to hold for one day to confirm break out. Or, on downdraft I would look at a 100 MA long entry also.

April 4 – Holding long 500 shares from 104.64 now trading 108.17. It is testing all time highs and we may add on a break of all time highs. If it pulls back we may cut for a small profit. First price target is 111.40 (see below)

$BABA Live chart with indicators including that SQZMOM indicator – sweeet tool! https://www.tradingview.com/chart/BABA/Lbao9BVu-BABA-Swing-Trade-going-well-Our-Swing-Trading-side-is-in-at-10/

March 27 – We’re long 104.64 500 shares March 22 at test of 20 MA. Stop is at our entry and we are looking for a fresh break-out. However, the market sentiment is not great right now so we are unsure. There is an upside pivot at 111.38 we are watching for resistance should price continue up. Also watching MACD close.

$BABA, Swing, Trading

$BABA Swing trade

March 20 – Wait for MACD to turn up and confirm and stay long until MACD turns down. The Stoch RSI seems to be frontrunning the MACD fyi. $BABA is one of my favorites right now and I see a long entry early in the week.

April 19 – Trading 143.75 – waiting for MACD to turn up.

April 10 – We closed flat 145.50. Trading 142.80. Waiting for MACD, Stoch RSI, SQZMOM to turn green for entry long.

April 4 – March 29 we entered 145.50 500 shares when MACD turned up per watch trigger below. Stop is at flat at entry and we will re-enter if we have to. Will look at adding pending triggers – will advise.

$NFLX Live chart with indicators https://www.tradingview.com/chart/NFLX/ozKJQ8t4-NFLX-March-29-we-entered-swing-trade-145-50-when-MACD-turned-t/

March 27 – MACD has been flat or turned down since last post. Looking close at MACD turn up and entry this week.

March 20 – The only thing that concerns me is the price staying above approximately 145.05 as a low on any given day. I may also look for that in addition to indicators lists below. Same thing with this one, exit when MACD turning down. Chances are high I will enter long early week.

$GSIT

April 24 – Trading 7.96. Watching.

April 19 – Trading 7.63. MACD still trending down. Waiting for it to turn up.

April 10 – Trading 8.18, Stoch RSI curling up, waiting on MACD to cross up and SQZMOM to turn green for long.

April 4 – $GSIT finally cooling off and coming back to earth. Watching that MACD very close for a turn up (after it returns to bottom hopefully).

Mar 27 – Sure enough, it was on its way to the 20 MA this past week and stopped short and got some lift and closed Friday sitting on 8 ema. Will wait for it to line up.

Mar 20 – The reason I have this on the list is because as a break-out stock it is about as clean as they come, however, break out stocks come with risk. So you have two options (and shorting right now isn’t one), you can either wait for it to get near a 20 MA test and go long when other indicators line up or open a short time-frame chart and trade it. I will be waiting for the 20 MA test.

GSI Technology, Inc. to Present at the Global Predictive Analytics Conference http://finance.yahoo.com/news/gsi-technology-inc-present-global-173705866.html

$GSIT in break-out. Daily Stoch RSI peaking, MACD near peak, SQZMOM near peak. Wait for 20 MA retest and MACD confirm for long.

$AXP, Swing, Trading, Stock, Chart

$AXP Swing Trade Going Well. MACD turned up for long 78.01 test.

April 4 – $AXP American Express. So close. SQZMOM about to turn, MACD cross on deck just need PTPTRR to line up. Need volume & power. #swingtrading $AXP Price Trigger Power Trade Risk Reward – PTPTRR #trading Over the Wall!

$AXP, Swing, Trading, Chart

$AXP American Express. So close. SQZMOM about to turn, MACD cross on deck just need PTPTRR to all line up. Need volume and power. #swingtrading

March 27 – MACD has turned down and SQZMOM is red and negative but Stoch RSI is starting to curl – waiting for that MACD to take an entry.

March 20 – This is a trend play. The only thing you have to do is manage your entry point and risk. Wait for indicators to confirm next leg up about to start and take long entry. When MACD turns down on daily that is your exit. I really like this one, especially because MA’s are all on right side (aligned) and trend reversal is in place.

$AXP Setting up for next possible leg up. Wait for MACD SQZMOM Stoch RSI to turn up. Will likely test near 100 MA at min 50MA.

April 10 – Waiting on MACD and Stoch RSI to cross and turn up for long. SQZMOM is green now. Trading 19.09.

April 4 – $ABX Setting up nicely. Above 200 MA, wait for Stoch RSI to return to bottom and turn if possible, be sure SQZMOM green and MACD turns up and kapow. Some volume and power would help too.

$ABX, Swing Trading, Chart

$ABX Setting up nicely. Above 200 MA, wait for Stoch RSI to return to bottom and turn if possible, be sure SQZMOM green and MACD turns up and kapow. Some volume and power would help too.

March 27 – Very close now. SQZMOM just turned green, MA’s are starting to line up but not all yet, Stoch RSI is turned down at top of range so I would like to see it at bottom when we enter and the MACD is turned up. So we’re waiting for the MA’s to line up and the Stoch RSI to be near or at bottom curling up (ideally).

March 20 – I will enter a long when price above 20 50 100 200 MA’s and will likely wait for the 200 MA to cross 100 MA (although not absolute). Like with all others I will exit when MACD turns down.

$TAN

April 24 – Trading 17.04. Watching.

April 19 – Trading 17.39. This one is getting close. Stoch RSI has to come off and then turn up. SQZMOM is almost green and MACD cross up. When those line up we will take a long position.

April 10 – Trading 17.20, Stoch RSI pinch, MACD pinch.  Waiting on Stoch RSI to curl up, MACD to cross up and SQZMOM to confirm green for long.

April 4 – NA

Mar 27 – $TAN chart is now “broken” and price is on its way to the lower pivot around 16.44. All indicators are pointing to down. It closed Friday at 17.29. So we will keenly watch it as it nears the lower pivot and see if the indicators line up for a long trade. If it lost lower pivot  we may even consider a short side entry pending indicators.

Mar 20 – Nice reversal play if it turns out. In addition to below watch the 200 MA as resistance if you go long.

$TAN Reversal Play. Daily MACD needs to turn up, Stoch RSI is up, SQZMOM needs to turn up. 100 MA about to cross 50 MA – bullish.

March 20 – This was looking like it was going to curl up last week and bounce but it failed. A great example of carefully watching a falling knife indicators before taking a long position. Use patience and when all indicators in play take a long.

$VRX Bottom Play. Daily MACD needs to turn, Stoch RSI turning up, SQZMOM needs to turn then as MA cross-overs occur it will strengthen.

$TWLO

April 24 – Trading 30.82. Holding 1000 shares 29.60.

April 19 – Trading 30.51. April 12 MACD turned up opened long 29.60 1000 shares. 

$TWLO, Swing, Trading

$TWLO Swing Trade going well. Trading 30.51. April 12 MACD turned up opened long 29.60 tight stop.

April 10 – Trading 28.40. Stoch RSI curling up, waiting on MACD cross and SQZMOM to turn green for long.

April 4 – No change.

March 27 – Price failed when it had to poke through 100 MA and continue – it failed and is on its way (possibly) to the previous low. So here, as with $VRX we employ patience – but get ready because the long in this one will be decent. Use the indicators noted below.

March 20 – Looks like bottom may be in. It is trending up. Looking for 100 MA to cross down under 20 MA (pinching now) and price to trade above 20 MA for long. Be sure to wait for MACD to confirm also first.

$TWLO Bottom Play on Watch. 100 MA needs to cross 20 MA with price over them. Stoch RSI pinch, MACD pinch, SQMOM turning up not green.

$WYNN

April 24 – Trading 114.89. Watching.

April 19 – Trading 115.95. MACD trending down. Waiting for bottom and turn up. It has a ways to go.

April 10 – Closed 500 shares Friday 117.20. Trading 116.50. Watching MACD, Stoch RSI, SQZMOM for reset at bottom and turn for re-entry.

April 4 – We triggered a stop at flat March 27 and had a re-entry at 111.04 when we looked at it again for 500 shares. Currently trading at 116.00 and we are watching MACD.  Which is currently at top. We may exit as MACD turns down and re-enter when MACD turns back up. Alternatively we may ride the MACD turn down as long as our original entry isn’t triggered as stop and when MACD turns back up add to position. Both are valid and we are undecided. 

March 26 – We took a long position at 110.93 for 500 share start on March 21. HOWEVER, we have a stop at our entry price (due to current market sentiment) and it is currently trading at 111.92. Careful with this one. 

March 20 – This isn’t easy to swing but is so hot it would be foolish to ignore, so discipline like with so many other plays in the current market is required. Seeing it hold 110.00 for a full day with indicators in line would put me in a long position.

$WYNN 200 MA needs to cross 100 MA, trade over 110 full day. Stoch RSI peaking, MACD up, SQMOM up.

$XME

April 24 – Trading 29.79. Watching.

April 19 – Trading 29.48. Close flat 30.59 on the 12th. Testing 200 MA now. Watching for Stoch RSI to turn up, MACD to turn up and SQZMOM to turn green for long.

April 10 – Trading 30.84 holding. Long at 30.59. Tight stop.

April 5 – We opened a tight long position (so stop will be tight because you can always re-enter and metals charts still have to confirm so we are a tad early here) long 30.59 500 shares will add if it confirms and will cut bait if it comes off at most 2% and re-enter. Indicators look good BUT we are early. Use caution until metals etc confirm.

$XME Metals and Mining ETF Above 21 ema 8 ema 20 MA 200 MA MACD turned up SQZMOM turned green today

March 27 – Price action has been poor since last report, the 200 MA is just below price now so we are going to see if the indicators line up for a bounce long position.

March 20 – MACD is pinching and about to turn up, also waiting for price above 20 MA. This is a great looking chart and an argument could be made that a long position before everything lines up as I noted is sound. It’s a great looking chart because MACD is bottom (for clarity), so when it turns if all other indicators look good there should be room for a decent trade. Caution should be noted that now after having gone through a number of charts this evening the market is at a decision so any swing trades should be considered at length and stops should be tight IMO.

$URRE

April 24 – Trading 1.84. Watching.

April 19 – Trading 1.94. Watching. Indicator indecision.

Apr 10 – No change.

April 5 – $URRE isn’t as close to a buy as $XME above, HOWEVER, the SQZMOM did signal green today and the MACD is slightly turning up! So it is on HIGH WATCH now!

March 27 – Almost a replay from last week (the indicators), so we remain patient and watch.

March 20 – Like so many of the charts this week, there is indecision. However, if the indicators line up this has excellent upside potential. The MACD pinching at the bottom is key IMO.

$URRE Daily MACD pinching at bottom, Stoch RSI turn up, SQZMOM needs green, price needs 20 MA.

$RIG Sooo close. MACD up, SQZMOM about to turn GR, wedged, needs increasing volume and break-out confirmation for a long.

March 27 – It is holding its 200 MA like a trooper, but I want to see it at least be over 20 MA and other indicators to line up.

March 20 – MACD pinching, watching for it to turn up, Above 200 day but needs to trade above 20 MA for long.

$XLE

April 24 – Trading 67.79. Watching.

April 19 – Watching

April 10 – No change.

April 5 – $XLE chart is very similar to $RIG and others in this space, HOWEVER, it is still under 200 MA. On watch for break of 200 MA.

March 27 – The 50 has crossed the 100 and the 20 the 200 to downside – this is very bearish in the near term. Watching. It does qualify as a short and best when MACD at top turning down and Stoch RSI at top turning down with confirmation of price action and MA’s.

March 20 – MACD pinching, watching for it to turn up, Needs 200 day and to trade above 20 MA for long or it becomes a short.

$SLX – Vaneck Vectors Steel

April 24 – Trading 37.55. On close watch.

April 19 – At 200 MA support test now. Watching indicators closely.

April 10 – No change. Trading 39.90.

April 5 – $SLX On watch for SQZMOM to turn green and MACD to turn up. Close.

$SLX, watch, chart

$SLX On watch for SQZMOM to turn green and MACD to turn up. Close.

March 27 – As with $XLE above this also qualifies as a short (pending short term indicators lining up when you take the position). Price lost the 100 MA and the indicators are negative – very bearish. Watching.

March 20 – MACD is pinching on the turn back up – waiting for it to turn up and 45.50 to hold for one day to confirm break out. Or, on downdraft I would look at a 100 MA long entry also.

$X – United States Steel Corp.

April 24 – Trading 30.10. On close watch. Earnings on deck. MACD needs to turn up.

April 19 – Trading 28.65. At 200 MA support test. As above watching indicators closely.

April 10 – Trading 34.40 premarket Monday. ON HIGH WATCH MACD about to cross up.

April 5 – Same as $SLX indicators above. Very close now.

March 27 – The $X trade is almost identical to $SLX above. Waiting.

March 20 – This one is riskier than most on this list, however, I am watching the MACD for a turn up for a possible long.

$AKS – Iron Steel Mills Foundry

April 24 – Trading 6.72. On close watch. MACD pinching up.

April 19 – Trading 6.40. Closed 6.97 fr loss April 11 when it lost 200 MA. On watch again.

April 10 – Long 7.30 April 7 1000 shares. MACD just turned up but SQZMOM is not green yet. 1/3 size entry with other 2/3 entry when SQZMOM turns green with other indicators confirming.

March 27 – AKS is coming in on the 200 MA test. Watching.

March 20 – MACD is turning up now, watching for price to trade above 20, 50, 100 that are clustered together. It is well over 200 MA.

Good morning! 

Markets are still in flux so this is an update of holds, closed trades and new trades within the stocks we are currently covering for swing trades on this list (one of three lists – the other two are to follow today or this evening).

The new swing trade picks on deck are not near flashing buy signals so for now (while markets sort out) we will update this list (and the others) over the next day or two and hopefully the markets will get positive again in short order so we can release the new picks also.

Any updates below specific to the more recent reports are highlighted in red to simplify the process for you.

Stock Picks Coverage

$LIT  – Global Lithium

April 19 – MACD crossed down April 13. Closed 28.30 all shares.

April 5 – $LIT Alerted on March 27 report and went long 27.32 March 30 – long entry still intact as MACD is up, SQZMOM green or wait for pull back then enter. We expect this sector to stay hot – but if not in you may want to wait for STOCH RSI to cool and turn back up and go long.

April 4 – Holding long 500 shares from 104.64 now trading 108.17. It is testing all time highs and we may add on a break of all time highs. If it pulls back we may cut for a small profit. First price target is 111.40 (see below)

March 27 – We’re long 104.64 500 shares March 22 at test of 20 MA. Stop is at our entry and we are looking for a fresh break-out. However, the market sentiment is not great right now so we are unsure. There is an upside pivot at 111.38 we are watching for resistance should price continue up. Also watching MACD close.

$BABA, Swing, Trading

$BABA Swing trade

March 20 – Wait for MACD to turn up and confirm and stay long until MACD turns down. The Stoch RSI seems to be frontrunning the MACD fyi. $BABA is one of my favorites right now and I see a long entry early in the week.

April 19 – Trading 143.75 – waiting for MACD to turn up.

April 10 – We closed flat 145.50. Trading 142.80. Waiting for MACD, Stoch RSI, SQZMOM to turn green for entry long.

April 4 – March 29 we entered 145.50 500 shares when MACD turned up per watch trigger below. Stop is at flat at entry and we will re-enter if we have to. Will look at adding pending triggers – will advise.

$NFLX Live chart with indicators https://www.tradingview.com/chart/NFLX/ozKJQ8t4-NFLX-March-29-we-entered-swing-trade-145-50-when-MACD-turned-t/

March 27 – MACD has been flat or turned down since last post. Looking close at MACD turn up and entry this week.

March 20 – The only thing that concerns me is the price staying above approximately 145.05 as a low on any given day. I may also look for that in addition to indicators lists below. Same thing with this one, exit when MACD turning down. Chances are high I will enter long early week.

$GSIT

April 19 – Trading 7.63. MACD still trending down. Waiting for it to turn up.

April 10 – Trading 8.18, Stoch RSI curling up, waiting on MACD to cross up and SQZMOM to turn green for long.

April 4 – $GSIT finally cooling off and coming back to earth. Watching that MACD very close for a turn up (after it returns to bottom hopefully).

Mar 27 – Sure enough, it was on its way to the 20 MA this past week and stopped short and got some lift and closed Friday sitting on 8 ema. Will wait for it to line up.

Mar 20 – The reason I have this on the list is because as a break-out stock it is about as clean as they come, however, break out stocks come with risk. So you have two options (and shorting right now isn’t one), you can either wait for it to get near a 20 MA test and go long when other indicators line up or open a short time-frame chart and trade it. I will be waiting for the 20 MA test.

$AXP American Express. So close. SQZMOM about to turn, MACD cross on deck just need PTPTRR to all line up. Need volume and power. #swingtrading

March 27 – MACD has turned down and SQZMOM is red and negative but Stoch RSI is starting to curl – waiting for that MACD to take an entry.

March 20 – This is a trend play. The only thing you have to do is manage your entry point and risk. Wait for indicators to confirm next leg up about to start and take long entry. When MACD turns down on daily that is your exit. I really like this one, especially because MA’s are all on right side (aligned) and trend reversal is in place.

$AXP Setting up for next possible leg up. Wait for MACD SQZMOM Stoch RSI to turn up. Will likely test near 100 MA at min 50MA.

April 4 – $ABX Setting up nicely. Above 200 MA, wait for Stoch RSI to return to bottom and turn if possible, be sure SQZMOM green and MACD turns up and kapow. Some volume and power would help too.

$ABX Setting up nicely. Above 200 MA, wait for Stoch RSI to return to bottom and turn if possible, be sure SQZMOM green and MACD turns up and kapow. Some volume and power would help too.

March 27 – Very close now. SQZMOM just turned green, MA’s are starting to line up but not all yet, Stoch RSI is turned down at top of range so I would like to see it at bottom when we enter and the MACD is turned up. So we’re waiting for the MA’s to line up and the Stoch RSI to be near or at bottom curling up (ideally).

March 20 – I will enter a long when price above 20 50 100 200 MA’s and will likely wait for the 200 MA to cross 100 MA (although not absolute). Like with all others I will exit when MACD turns down.

$TAN

April 19 – Trading 17.39. This one is getting close. Stoch RSI has to come off and then turn up. SQZMOM is almost green and MACD cross up. When those line up we will take a long position.

April 10 – Trading 17.20, Stoch RSI pinch, MACD pinch.  Waiting on Stoch RSI to curl up, MACD to cross up and SQZMOM to confirm green for long.

April 4 – NA

Mar 27 – $TAN chart is now “broken” and price is on its way to the lower pivot around 16.44. All indicators are pointing to down. It closed Friday at 17.29. So we will keenly watch it as it nears the lower pivot and see if the indicators line up for a long trade. If it lost lower pivot  we may even consider a short side entry pending indicators.

Mar 20 – Nice reversal play if it turns out. In addition to below watch the 200 MA as resistance if you go long.

$TAN Reversal Play. Daily MACD needs to turn up, Stoch RSI is up, SQZMOM needs to turn up. 100 MA about to cross 50 MA – bullish.

April 4 – No change.

March 27 – Price failed when it had to poke through 100 MA and continue – it failed and is on its way (possibly) to the previous low. So here, as with $VRX we employ patience – but get ready because the long in this one will be decent. Use the indicators noted below.

March 20 – Looks like bottom may be in. It is trending up. Looking for 100 MA to cross down under 20 MA (pinching now) and price to trade above 20 MA for long. Be sure to wait for MACD to confirm also first.

$TWLO Bottom Play on Watch. 100 MA needs to cross 20 MA with price over them. Stoch RSI pinch, MACD pinch, SQMOM turning up not green.

$WYNN

April 19 – Trading 115.95. MACD trending down. Waiting for bottom and turn up. It has a ways to go.

April 10 – Closed 500 shares Friday 117.20. Trading 116.50. Watching MACD, Stoch RSI, SQZMOM for reset at bottom and turn for re-entry.

April 4 – We triggered a stop at flat March 27 and had a re-entry at 111.04 when we looked at it again for 500 shares. Currently trading at 116.00 and we are watching MACD.  Which is currently at top. We may exit as MACD turns down and re-enter when MACD turns back up. Alternatively we may ride the MACD turn down as long as our original entry isn’t triggered as stop and when MACD turns back up add to position. Both are valid and we are undecided. 

March 26 – We took a long position at 110.93 for 500 share start on March 21. HOWEVER, we have a stop at our entry price (due to current market sentiment) and it is currently trading at 111.92. Careful with this one. 

March 20 – This isn’t easy to swing but is so hot it would be foolish to ignore, so discipline like with so many other plays in the current market is required. Seeing it hold 110.00 for a full day with indicators in line would put me in a long position.

$WYNN 200 MA needs to cross 100 MA, trade over 110 full day. Stoch RSI peaking, MACD up, SQMOM up.

April 10 – Trading 30.84 holding. Long at 30.59. Tight stop.

April 5 – We opened a tight long position (so stop will be tight because you can always re-enter and metals charts still have to confirm so we are a tad early here) long 30.59 500 shares will add if it confirms and will cut bait if it comes off at most 2% and re-enter. Indicators look good BUT we are early. Use caution until metals etc confirm.

$XME, Swing, Trading, Alerts

$XME Metals and Mining ETF Above 21 ema 8 ema 20 MA 200 MA MACD turned up SQZMOM turned green today

March 27 – Price action has been poor since last report, the 200 MA is just below price now so we are going to see if the indicators line up for a bounce long position.

March 20 – MACD is pinching and about to turn up, also waiting for price above 20 MA. This is a great looking chart and an argument could be made that a long position before everything lines up as I noted is sound. It’s a great looking chart because MACD is bottom (for clarity), so when it turns if all other indicators look good there should be room for a decent trade. Caution should be noted that now after having gone through a number of charts this evening the market is at a decision so any swing trades should be considered at length and stops should be tight IMO.

Apr 10 – No change.

April 5 – $URRE isn’t as close to a buy as $XME above, HOWEVER, the SQZMOM did signal green today and the MACD is slightly turning up! So it is on HIGH WATCH now!

March 27 – Almost a replay from last week (the indicators), so we remain patient and watch.

March 20 – Like so many of the charts this week, there is indecision. However, if the indicators line up this has excellent upside potential. The MACD pinching at the bottom is key IMO.

March 20 – MACD pinching, watching for it to turn up, Above 200 day but needs to trade above 20 MA for long.

March 27 – The 50 has crossed the 100 and the 20 the 200 to downside – this is very bearish in the near term. Watching. It does qualify as a short and best when MACD at top turning down and Stoch RSI at top turning down with confirmation of price action and MA’s.

March 20 – MACD pinching, watching for it to turn up, Needs 200 day and to trade above 20 MA for long or it becomes a short.

March 27 – The $X trade is almost identical to $SLX above. Waiting.

March 20 – This one is riskier than most on this list, however, I am watching the MACD for a turn up for a possible long.

Notices:

Good morning! 

This is only an update of holds, closed trades and new trades within the stocks we are currently covering for swing trades on this list (the second list is to follow this evening, this being one of two lists of stocks we are covering).

The new weekly picks will be published this evening in a third page of stocks we are covering (the list is extensive and requires a third page to be added).

There are some new entries below such as $AKS long, some positions closed such as $WYNN, some holds and some very near entry points.

See you this evening with updates to page two and the new list of picks this week (page three). 

Any updates below specific to the more recent reports are highlighted in red to simplify the process for you.

Stock Picks Coverage

$LIT  – Global Lithium

April 10 – Trading 28.87 Holding.

April 5 – $LIT Alerted on March 27 report and went long 27.32 March 30 – long entry still intact as MACD is up, SQZMOM green or wait for pull back then enter. We expect this sector to stay hot – but if not in you may want to wait for STOCH RSI to cool and turn back up and go long.

$BABA – Alibaba

April 10 – Hit 110.45, very near our 111.40 target. Holding, trading 109.34. Long 104.64.

April 4 – Holding long 500 shares from 104.64 now trading 108.17. It is testing all time highs and we may add on a break of all time highs. If it pulls back we may cut for a small profit. First price target is 111.40 (see below)

$BABA Live chart with indicators including that SQZMOM indicator – sweeet tool! https://www.tradingview.com/chart/BABA/Lbao9BVu-BABA-Swing-Trade-going-well-Our-Swing-Trading-side-is-in-at-10/

March 27 – We’re long 104.64 500 shares March 22 at test of 20 MA. Stop is at our entry and we are looking for a fresh break-out. However, the market sentiment is not great right now so we are unsure. There is an upside pivot at 111.38 we are watching for resistance should price continue up. Also watching MACD close.

$BABA, Swing, Trading

$BABA Swing trade

March 20 – Wait for MACD to turn up and confirm and stay long until MACD turns down. The Stoch RSI seems to be frontrunning the MACD fyi. $BABA is one of my favorites right now and I see a long entry early in the week.

$NFLX

April 10 – We closed flat 145.50. Trading 142.80. Waiting for MACD, Stoch RSI, SQZMOM to turn green for entry long.

April 4 – March 29 we entered 145.50 500 shares when MACD turned up per watch trigger below. Stop is at flat at entry and we will re-enter if we have to. Will look at adding pending triggers – will advise.

$NFLX Live chart with indicators https://www.tradingview.com/chart/NFLX/ozKJQ8t4-NFLX-March-29-we-entered-swing-trade-145-50-when-MACD-turned-t/

March 27 – MACD has been flat or turned down since last post. Looking close at MACD turn up and entry this week.

March 20 – The only thing that concerns me is the price staying above approximately 145.05 as a low on any given day. I may also look for that in addition to indicators lists below. Same thing with this one, exit when MACD turning down. Chances are high I will enter long early week.

$GSIT

April 10 – Trading 8.18, Stoch RSI curling up, waiting on MACD to cross up and SQZMOM to turn green for long.

April 4 – $GSIT finally cooling off and coming back to earth. Watching that MACD very close for a turn up (after it returns to bottom hopefully).

Mar 27 – Sure enough, it was on its way to the 20 MA this past week and stopped short and got some lift and closed Friday sitting on 8 ema. Will wait for it to line up.

Mar 20 – The reason I have this on the list is because as a break-out stock it is about as clean as they come, however, break out stocks come with risk. So you have two options (and shorting right now isn’t one), you can either wait for it to get near a 20 MA test and go long when other indicators line up or open a short time-frame chart and trade it. I will be waiting for the 20 MA test.

$GSIT in break-out. Daily Stoch RSI peaking, MACD near peak, SQZMOM near peak. Wait for 20 MA retest and MACD confirm for long.

April 10 – Trading 77.77. Waiting on Stoch RSI to curl up, MACD to cross up and SQZMOM to turn green for long.

April 4 – $AXP American Express. So close. SQZMOM about to turn, MACD cross on deck just need PTPTRR to line up. Need volume & power. #swingtrading $AXP Price Trigger Power Trade Risk Reward – PTPTRR #trading Over the Wall!

$AXP, Swing, Trading, Chart

$AXP American Express. So close. SQZMOM about to turn, MACD cross on deck just need PTPTRR to all line up. Need volume and power. #swingtrading

March 27 – MACD has turned down and SQZMOM is red and negative but Stoch RSI is starting to curl – waiting for that MACD to take an entry.

March 20 – This is a trend play. The only thing you have to do is manage your entry point and risk. Wait for indicators to confirm next leg up about to start and take long entry. When MACD turns down on daily that is your exit. I really like this one, especially because MA’s are all on right side (aligned) and trend reversal is in place.

$AXP Setting up for next possible leg up. Wait for MACD SQZMOM Stoch RSI to turn up. Will likely test near 100 MA at min 50MA.

$ABX – Barrick Gold

April 10 – Waiting on MACD and Stoch RSI to cross and turn up for long. SQZMOM is green now. Trading 19.09.

April 4 – $ABX Setting up nicely. Above 200 MA, wait for Stoch RSI to return to bottom and turn if possible, be sure SQZMOM green and MACD turns up and kapow. Some volume and power would help too.

$ABX Setting up nicely. Above 200 MA, wait for Stoch RSI to return to bottom and turn if possible, be sure SQZMOM green and MACD turns up and kapow. Some volume and power would help too.

March 27 – Very close now. SQZMOM just turned green, MA’s are starting to line up but not all yet, Stoch RSI is turned down at top of range so I would like to see it at bottom when we enter and the MACD is turned up. So we’re waiting for the MA’s to line up and the Stoch RSI to be near or at bottom curling up (ideally).

March 20 – I will enter a long when price above 20 50 100 200 MA’s and will likely wait for the 200 MA to cross 100 MA (although not absolute). Like with all others I will exit when MACD turns down.

$TAN

April 10 – Trading 17.20, Stoch RSI pinch, MACD pinch.  Waiting on Stoch RSI to curl up, MACD to cross up and SQZMOM to confirm green for long.

April 4 – NA

Mar 27 – $TAN chart is now “broken” and price is on its way to the lower pivot around 16.44. All indicators are pointing to down. It closed Friday at 17.29. So we will keenly watch it as it nears the lower pivot and see if the indicators line up for a long trade. If it lost lower pivot  we may even consider a short side entry pending indicators.

Mar 20 – Nice reversal play if it turns out. In addition to below watch the 200 MA as resistance if you go long.

$TAN Reversal Play. Daily MACD needs to turn up, Stoch RSI is up, SQZMOM needs to turn up. 100 MA about to cross 50 MA – bullish.

$VRX

Apr 10 – Waiting on Stoch RSI to curl up, MACD to cross up and SQZMOM to confirm green for long.

April 4 – I thought I’d run a poll on my Twitter feed to help us with this one.

$VRX Premarket up 1%. MACD cross flat… is this the bottom?

$VRX Premarket live chart https://www.tradingview.com/chart/VRX/F7bVqHl7-VRX-Premarket-up-1-MACD-cross-flat-could-this-be-bottom/

March 27 – $VRX continues stepping down on the chart… per below, really important to wait for all the indicators to line up. So we remain patient and watch.

March 20 – This was looking like it was going to curl up last week and bounce but it failed. A great example of carefully watching a falling knife indicators before taking a long position. Use patience and when all indicators in play take a long.

$VRX Bottom Play. Daily MACD needs to turn, Stoch RSI turning up, SQZMOM needs to turn then as MA cross-overs occur it will strengthen.

$TWLO

April 10 – Trading 28.40. Stoch RSI curling up, waiting on MACD cross and SQZMOM to turn green for long.

April 4 – No change.

March 27 – Price failed when it had to poke through 100 MA and continue – it failed and is on its way (possibly) to the previous low. So here, as with $VRX we employ patience – but get ready because the long in this one will be decent. Use the indicators noted below.

March 20 – Looks like bottom may be in. It is trending up. Looking for 100 MA to cross down under 20 MA (pinching now) and price to trade above 20 MA for long. Be sure to wait for MACD to confirm also first.

$TWLO Bottom Play on Watch. 100 MA needs to cross 20 MA with price over them. Stoch RSI pinch, MACD pinch, SQMOM turning up not green.

$WYNN

April 10 – Closed 500 shares Friday 117.20. Trading 116.50. Watching MACD, Stoch RSI, SQZMOM for reset at bottom and turn for re-entry.

April 4 – We triggered a stop at flat March 27 and had a re-entry at 111.04 when we looked at it again for 500 shares. Currently trading at 116.00 and we are watching MACD.  Which is currently at top. We may exit as MACD turns down and re-enter when MACD turns back up. Alternatively we may ride the MACD turn down as long as our original entry isn’t triggered as stop and when MACD turns back up add to position. Both are valid and we are undecided. 

March 26 – We took a long position at 110.93 for 500 share start on March 21. HOWEVER, we have a stop at our entry price (due to current market sentiment) and it is currently trading at 111.92. Careful with this one. 

March 20 – This isn’t easy to swing but is so hot it would be foolish to ignore, so discipline like with so many other plays in the current market is required. Seeing it hold 110.00 for a full day with indicators in line would put me in a long position.

$WYNN 200 MA needs to cross 100 MA, trade over 110 full day. Stoch RSI peaking, MACD up, SQMOM up.

$XME

April 10 – Trading 30.84 holding. Long at 30.59. Tight stop.

April 5 – We opened a tight long position (so stop will be tight because you can always re-enter and metals charts still have to confirm so we are a tad early here) long 30.59 500 shares will add if it confirms and will cut bait if it comes off at most 2% and re-enter. Indicators look good BUT we are early. Use caution until metals etc confirm.

Notices:

Good morning! 

It looks like the Trump trade is under fire and as such the new swing trade picks are limited. Also affecting this is that major markets such as oil, the US Dollar, Silver, Gold and more are literally all at either support or resistance. In other words, there is a decision in the market and we’ve entered chop city for at least the near term.

So I have updated positions below and what we are looking for in each and as the market forms a decision we will then publish new picks based on the market decision (we expect very soon).

The following are some of the stocks we are looking to add to our coverage and for now remain on our watchlist only (until this near term decision in markets plays out): $LIT, $CEW, $MYL, $TZA, $TREE, $NVDA, $SOXS, $KBH, $BCOR

Either way, there is plenty of steak on the bone so to speak below for an avid swing trader to get in to with the existing stocks we are covering below – a few on the long side and many more on the short side.

Also, one point of discussion with coaching students lately has been returning to the triggers to use when buying and selling swing trade positions – this becomes vividly important especially in times of market chop.

As such, it is critical to understand the basics of PTPTRR – Price Trigger Power Trade Risk Reward. If you do not understand the basics of these principles you need to either get some quick coaching (usually five hours or less is all that is needed) or study up and research these important skills on your own – BUT do not swing trade until you know the basics of these principles please – thanks!

Specific to our picks below, we have updated the most important information and will flesh this out more as we go. 

This weeks publication is in three parts:

You can consider this new document below Part 1 of this week’s picks and the previous picks Part 2, you can find the previous swing trading picks updates here.

Also, click here for a weekly public post on swing trading simple charts for $DXY, $USDJPY, $VIX, $WTI, $GLD, $SLV, $GDX, and $SPY that we will call Part 3 of this weeks picks.

When using live charts as available below, you can either press play button on chart (once opened) for a quick view or click the share icon at the bottom right of chart (just right of the thumbs up symbol) and then click “make it mine” – this will open chart in your browser. Any problems with this let us know. Also, please note, we can only create ten new live charts on TradingView a day so that is why you see some with live charts and over time we publish them.

Indicators on charts are represented as; 20 MA light blue, 50 MA Purple, 100 MA dark blue, 200 MA pink. 8 EMA Yellow, 21 EMA Green. VWAP when available orange.

Any updates below specific to recent reports are highlighted in red to simplify the process for you.

Stock Picks Coverage

$BABA

March 27 – We’re long 104.64 500 shares March 22 at test of 20 MA. Stop is at our entry and we are looking for a fresh break-out. However, the market sentiment is not great right now so we are unsure. There is an upside pivot at 111.38 we are watching for resistance should price continue up. Also watching MACD close.

$BABA, Swing, Trading

$BABA Swing trade

March 20 – Wait for MACD to turn up and confirm and stay long until MACD turns down. The Stoch RSI seems to be frontrunning the MACD fyi. $BABA is one of my favorites right now and I see a long entry early in the week.

$NFLX

March 27 – MACD has been flat or turned down since last post. Looking close at MACD turn up and entry this week.

March 20 – The only thing that concerns me is the price staying above approximately 145.05 as a low on any given day. I may also look for that in addition to indicators lists below. Same thing with this one, exit when MACD turning down. Chances are high I will enter long early week.

$GSIT

Mar 27 – Sure enough, it was on its way to the 20 MA this past week and stopped short and got some lift and close Friday sitting on 8 ema. Will wait for it to line up.

Mar 20 – The reason I have this on the list is because as a break-out stock it is about as clean as they come, however, break out stocks come with risk. So you have two options (and shorting right now isn’t one), you can either wait for it to get near a 20 MA test and go long when other indicators line up or open a short time-frame chart and trade it. I will be waiting for the 20 MA test.

GSI Technology, Inc. to Present at the Global Predictive Analytics Conference http://finance.yahoo.com/news/gsi-technology-inc-present-global-173705866.html

$GSIT in break-out. Daily Stoch RSI peaking, MACD near peak, SQZMOM near peak. Wait for 20 MA retest and MACD confirm for long.

$GSIT, Chart, ,Swing, Trading

$GSIT in break-out. Daily Stoch RSI peaking, MACD near peak, SQZMOM near peak. Wait for 20 MA retest and MACD confirm for long.

$AXP

March 27 – MACD has turned down and SQZMOM is red and negative but Stoch RSI is starting to curl – waiting for that MACD to take an entry.

March 20 – This is a trend play. The only thing you have to do is manage your entry point and risk. Wait for indicators to confirm next leg up about to start and take long entry. When MACD turns down on daily that is your exit. I really like this one, especially because MA’s are all on right side (aligned) and trend reversal is in place.

$AXP Setting up for next possible leg up. Wait for MACD SQZMOM Stoch RSI to turn up. Will likely test near 100 MA at min 50MA.

$AXP, Stock, Swing, Trade

$AXP Setting up for next possible leg up. Wait for MACD SQZMOM Stoch RSI to turn up. Will likely test near 100MA at min 50MA.

$ABX

March 27 – Very close now. SQZMOM just turned green, MA’s are starting to line up but not all yet, Stoch RSI is turned down at top of range so I would like to see it at bottom when we enter and the MACD is turned up. So we’re waiting for the MA’s to line up and the Stoch RSI to be near or at bottom curling up (ideally).

March 20 – I will enter a long when price above 20 50 100 200 MA’s and will likely wait for the 200 MA to cross 100 MA (although not absolute). Like with all others I will exit when MACD turns down.

$ABX Daily MACD turning up, Stoch RSI way up, price on 20 MA, SQZMOM needs to confirm, 200 MA 100 MA cross would help with price above.

$TAN

Mar 27 – $TAN chart is now “broken” and price is on its way to the lower pivot around 16.44. All indicators are pointing to down. It closed Friday at 17.29. So we will keenly watch it as it nears the lower pivot and see if the indicators line up for a long trade. If it lost lower pivot  we may even consider a short side entry pending indicators.

Mar 20 – Nice reversal play if it turns out. In addition to below watch the 200 MA as resistance if you go long.

$TAN Reversal Play. Daily MACD needs to turn up, Stoch RSI is up, SQZMOM needs to turn up. 100 MA about to cross 50 MA – bullish.

$VRX

March 27 – $VRX continues stepping down on the chart… per below, really important to wait for all the indicators to line up. So we remain patient and watch.

March 20 – This was looking like it was going to curl up last week and bounce but it failed. A great example of carefully watching a falling knife indicators before taking a long position. Use patience and when all indicators in play take a long.

$VRX Bottom Play. Daily MACD needs to turn, Stoch RSI turning up, SQZMOM needs to turn then as MA cross-overs occur it will strengthen.

$VRX Bottom Play. Daily MACD needs to turn, Stoch RSI turning up, SQZMOM needs to turn then as MA cross-overs occur it will strengthen.

$TWLO

March 27 – Price failed when it had to poke through 100 MA and continue – it failed and is on its way (possibly) to the previous low. So here, as with $VRX we employ patience – but get ready because the long in this one will be decent. Use the indicators noted below.

March 20 – Looks like bottom may be in. It is trending up. Looking for 100 MA to cross down under 20 MA (pinching now) and price to trade above 20 MA for long. Be sure to wait for MACD to confirm also first.

$TWLO Bottom Play on Watch. 100 MA needs to cross 20 MA with price over them. Stoch RSI pinch, MACD pinch, SQMOM turning up not green.

$TWLO, Swing Trading

$TWLO Bottom Play on Watch. 100 MA needs to cross 20 MA with price over them. Stoch RSI pinch, MACD pinch, SQMOM turning up not green.

$WYNN

March 26 – We took a long position at 110.93 for 500 share start on March 21. HOWEVER, we have a stop at our entry price (due to current market sentiment) and it is currently trading at 111.92. Careful with this one. 

March 20 – This isn’t easy to swing but is so hot it would be foolish to ignore, so discipline like with so many other plays in the current market is required. Seeing it hold 110.00 for a full day with indicators in line would put me in a long position.

$WYNN 200 MA needs to cross 100 MA, trade over 110 full day. Stoch RSI peaking, MACD up, SQMOM up.

$WYNN, Swing, Trade

$WYNN 200 MA needs to cross 100 MA, trade over 110 full day. Stoch RSI peaking, MACD up, SQMOM up.

$XME

March 27 – Price action has been poor since last report, the 200 MA is just below price now so we are going to see if the indicators line up for a bounce long position.

March 20 – MACD is pinching and about to turn up, also waiting for price above 20 MA. This is a great looking chart and an argument could be made that a long position before everything lines up as I noted is sound. It’s a great looking chart because MACD is bottom (for clarity), so when it turns if all other indicators look good there should be room for a decent trade. Caution should be noted that now after having gone through a number of charts this evening the market is at a decision so any swing trades should be considered at length and stops should be tight IMO.

$URRE

March 27 – Almost a replay from last week (the indicators), so we remain patient and watch.

March 20 – Like so many of the charts this week, there is indecision. However, if the indicators line up this has excellent upside potential. The MACD pinching at the bottom is key IMO.

$URRE Daily MACD pinching at bottom, Stoch RSI turn up, SQZMOM needs green, price needs 20 MA.

Others on watch but not ready to report charting:

$RIG

March 27 – It is holding its 200 MA like a trooper, but I want to see it at least be over 20 MA and other indicators to line up.

March 20 – MACD pinching, watching for it to turn up, Above 200 day but needs to trade above 20 MA for long.

$XLE

March 27 – The 50 has crossed the 100 and the 20 the 200 to downside – this is very bearish in the near term. Watching. It does qualify as a short and best when MACD at top turning down and Stoch RSI at top turning down with confirmation of price action and MA’s.

March 20 – MACD pinching, watching for it to turn up, Needs 200 day and to trade above 20 MA for long or it becomes a short.

$SLX

March 27 – As with $XLE above this also qualifies as a short (pending short term indicators lining up when you take the position). Price lost the 100 MA and the indicators are negative – very bearish. Watching.

March 20 – MACD is pinching on the turn back up – waiting for it to turn up and 45.50 to hold for one day to confirm break out. Or, on downdraft I would look at a 100 MA long entry also.

$X

March 27 – The $X trade is almost identical to $SLX above. Waiting.

March 20 – This one is riskier than most on this list, however, I am watching the MACD for a turn up for a possible long.

$AKS

March 27 – AKS is coming in on the 200 MA test. Watching.

March 20 – MACD is turning up now, watching for price to trade above 20, 50, 100 that are clustered together. It is well over 200 MA.

Good morning! 

Below are the new stock picks but keep in mind that the market is at an important point. So we have in addition to this prepared two other lists, one if the market goes in to corrective mode and one if the market gets overheated again. Both of which are not included below but would be released immediately following a market decision up or down. So watch for that as things progress.

The charts below are focused on indicators that swing traders can rely on when markets are indecisive and sentiment isn’t easy to trend and swing (early 2017 sentiment swing trading was easy for example). So a little more attention to indicators such as MACD should be considered. Hopefully a clear sentiment re-emerges so our swings can be less hands on.

Specific to our picks below, we have updated the most important information and will flesh this out more as we go. 

This weeks publication is in three parts:

You can consider this new document below Part 1 of this week’s picks and the previous picks Part 2, you can find the previous swing trading picks updates here.

$AKS – MACD is turning up now, watching for price to trade above 20, 50, 100 that are clustered together. It is well over 200 MA.

$VRX – This has been a great bottom play in recent days. However, I am going to wait for the MACD to turn up and then I will look at a long.

$CELG

Mar 12, 2017 – The Stoch RSI hasn’t cooled, in fact it has heated since last report. Also below is the MACD, it’s near pinching so it may be best to take a short position soon and flip to long when MACD turns to buy signal.

Feb 27, 2017 – Trading at 43.72 this beat up sector seems to be ripe for a bounce. If we execute a trade on Monday it will be to test the waters and watch the market sentiment day to day – this and price action will determine how long we are in it. An interim target however would be 46.80 and would likely change as the trade progresses.

Eagle Materials is a riskier play than most we will add to our swing portfolio, but our DD on this one has us excited and we likely will take a long position early this week with a target of minimum 10% upside in next 90 days. We will however keep our stop tight.

Although we would never otherwise consider it and if we do enter today a long position it will be looked at as short term, we think there may be opportunity to swing trade it because it should be much lower considering its recent quarter… lower in that we expected a panic that did not occur. This seems bullish, or at minimum a likely “bargain” in our opinion.

Feb 22, 2017 – We entered a long position starter at 848.91 200 shares. Stops will be managed manually and will be held tight until trade is to upside of current range. Pensive about short term market range.

Feb 21, 2017 – Price is to the topside of the break-out and I will likely enter a long position over the next day or two. Bullish on this stock.

Feb 12, 2017 – We still like the $GOOGL stock / chart. Price recently broke to the upside of the triangle and didn’t hold but is threatening to trade above again at Friday close. We’re watching for an upside break that holds for an entry or a visit to the 200 MA (pink line) for an entry.

Feb 7, 2017 Member Update: We expect a signal from the Trump camp soon (late this week), and if positive, this will be a very strong play – watch close! This needs to be high on your radar going forward!

We like this chart. Watch for an upside break out of the triangle. The principles apply the same to $GOOG and $GOOGL charts fyi. Also, watch the MACD close, it looks primed for a move. Earnings are Thursday. If price breaks to downside I will update with levels to watch. Also, the is a chart below that shows upside target.

Feb 21, 2017 – Trading at 839.48 in premarket we’re on the right side of this swing so far. Depending on price action I will look to add at pull backs. Very bullish this stock.

Feb 12, 2017 – Trade Alert! We entered a trade long at a cost average 822.72 for 100 shares as soon as price was upside the 20 MA. This is an aggressive trade (being that we didn’t wait for a pull-back to 50, 100 or 200). We have a tight stop on the trade at 804.00 (just below its recent low (this would be a broken trade in our opinion at that point). So we are hoping this week is a strong week for Amazon. If not our aggressive move will cost us.

$AMZN Amazon Swing Trading Member Chart – Compound Trading

Feb 7, 2017 Member Alert! We haven’t got a pull back to the 200 day and depending on how tech does with Trump we may or may not, however, in overnight trade (premarket) price is close to the 100 day and I may take a test long position. This is one of our favorite picks so we will be quite aggressive with our attempts to get in at an inflection – so we are thinking sometime in the next few days looks decent.

My fourth priority is Amazon. I don’t want to over simplify this trade – but the bottom line is I’m looking for a pull-back and an entry as close to that 200 day (pink line with green arrow) as possible. I don’t think this stock will stop anytime soon. DD to follow soon.

Feb 12, 2017 – This stock hasn’t slowed down since our entry at 2.59 (10000 shares) and doesn’t seem to want to return to the trendline support so our swing trade members can get in. It is trading perfectly in our prescribed range (albeit at the top) and closed at 3.90 on Friday – we have a 5.57 PT on it so I don’t if it is best to enter now – I wouldn’t unless it returns to the support line but some of the more aggressive swing trading members may want to consider it. Also, we will be ratcheting stops before earnings and even though earnings are expected to be strong we likely will not hold through earnings (or if we do it will be with tight stops).

My second priority is $CBMX. I am already in this swing and plan to enter in dips at the diagonal trend line (blue). Initial target area is around 5.57 with much greater potential upside. The Trump factor may cause this to come off a bit so my bias is toward late spring for first price target.

Feb 21, 2017 – We closed our position last week at 46.04 because sentiment in this sector started to turn. We may look at a re-entry, however, we are waiting for the crude oil resistance test to play out and would like to monitor sentiment.

Feb 12, 2017 – This has been a fantastic swing trade and many of our members have profited from it. We are holding and have moved up stops to a 5% drop.

It is currently trading at 45.70 and is up considerably for our members – our 2017 price target was 49.58 and our short term price targets were easily met.

It is also currently trading just above its 200 MA so we are watching close – if it loses the 200 MA we will exit likely. So if you are thinking of adding or a long trade here you want to watch the 200 MA.

Our traders will be watching earnings (much like we did with Google last week and we will be doing with Amazon this week). Pending earnings and price action this will be when we enter a trade. Some of our swing traders have obviously seen decent gains since we first put this on our swing trading list a number of weeks back (good timing actually), but our traders have not taken a position yet.

$ASM.

Mar 7, 2017 –  Holding our small position.

Feb 21, 2017 – Holding, watching 200 MA.

Feb 6, 2017 $ASM comes to us by reference of HedgeHog trader who has spent some time in our trading room lately and is a close friend of ours. His due diligence on this one is solid in our opinion and the chart is about to break out – it is just shy of the 200 day! Here’s the transcript of his attendance in our trading room yesterday if you wish to view. He also mentions in that transcript other picks he likes (such as $NG, $THM, $NAK, $CPO.V).

$VIX 

Mar 12, 2017 – Waiting for MACD to turn up for long position and even that has only moderate success – caution warranted.

https://www.tradingview.com/chart/VIX/G9J4sts6-Swing-Trading-VIX-Keep-it-Simple-MACD-Only-Moderate-Success/

Feb 12 – $VIX has done nothing. Watching.

My seventh priority is the VIX. I see a pull-back in the market coming and a lift in VIX. The primary trade I am looking for is actually a short in the VIX when it gets upside it’s bolllinger band (it’s a little more complicated than that – specifically with timing and I will be putting an alert out when I do it anyway) – I’ll also play some short term longs in $TVIX or $UVXY.

Mar 7, 2017 – We closed the last 25% on Feb 27 23.80. Nice trade.

Feb 21 – Friday we trimmed 75% at 25.18. Watching.

Feb 14, 2017 $GDX trade went exactly as planned. Waiting for trading this week for further trade decisions.

$GDX Swing Trade Member Stock Pick went exactly as planned – a 13% gain. Waiting for trading this week for further trade decisions.

Feb 7, 2017 $GDX Alert – Members, this trade went exactly as planned and is now beyond our call so caution please!

My third priority on this list are the miner’s – $GDX and leveraged friends. This one is risky but comes with large gains if miner’s get moving and price breaks in to next quadrant above the yellow one outlined on the chart below. And for the risk taker it can be traded with leveraged ETN’s. There are inherent risks however; one is that price is not at bottom of the trading quadrant so an entry here is not ideal and the obvious issue is the Trump factor.

$USOIL / $WTI

Mar 12, 2017 – Waiting for MACD to turn up before considering a trade.

https://www.tradingview.com/chart/USOIL/QbYJt8yv-Crude-Oil-Swing-Trading-KISS-Keep-it-Simple-MACD-Wins-FX-USOIL/

Feb 21, 2017 – On the daytrading side I have been adding to a long that I though would be only days and turned in to a bit of a swing but did not alert it on the swing side because of the risk element. However, crude oil is over the resistance in overnight trade as I write and getting very close to the most significant resistance it has encountered in years. Stay tuned to updates this week, I expect to be putting out a number of updates this week because of this specific scenario. If crude does not handle resistance well I will short it heavily and will post a number of picks surrounding that play. If crude oil gets up over this significant resistance then I will go long and will post an alternate list of stock pics surrounding that play.

Feb 12 – Crude oil traded at resistance on Friday, some may opt to short here but we are waiting to see if price breaks to upside. Will advise.

Feb 7, 2017 Update: In overnight trade $USOIL is trading at 52.19 and there is a diagonal support trendline intra-day below at approximately 52.28 – we will be looking at taking a long position in that area if we can get it – with a tight 1% stop.

In overnight lab work our developers established a diagonal trendline (blue line in chart that has a blue arrow pointing at it) that has established itself as strong support. If you take a swing trade against that support (as as close to it as possible) then look to the upside of that white dotted arrow line as your target long. Ratchet up stops there.

So that’s it for today, however, when the crude trade plays out in the short term I will be posting an updated list either way (for upside or downside scenario crude oil). Again, I apologize for the unexpected pivot but I have no choice but to see how this crude break-out plays and that won’t take more than two days. So expect all the new plays sometime between now and Thursday.

Email or DM me on Twitter anytime with thoughts or questions!

Cheers!
