Today's Swing Trade Ideas

UBNT/Long  (Communication Equipment) UBNT has formed a double bottom with a Doji Bullish Engulf in early December and a Doji continuation pattern in the last three bars.  A close over the 50-day simple moving average yesterday has set up the rounded bottom breakout pattern.

My entry plan idea:  Ideally buy above $30.74 and below $32.77 or buy on positive trading above yesterday's high.
My stop plan idea:    On a bearish candlestick signal below 30.74.

Good Morning, 

SPY:   Yesterday was another day where the SPY closed below the T-Line after attempting a monster one-day rally but gave it all back before the close.  I don't believe the SPY has reached its low; Continue Reading

GMCR/Short (Defensive sector packaged foods) GMCR is forming a dreaded “H” pattern after a lower high failing the 50-day simple moving average. The 20- period moving average has now crossed below the 50-period moving average. I’m looking for GMCR to drop close to another 10%.

My entry plan idea:  On an intraday bounce inside yesterday's candle or on weakness below yesterday’s close but with caution not to chase.
My stop plan idea:    $136.80

Good Morning, 

SPY:   The overall market remains controlled by sellers in the SPY below the 50-day simple moving average yesterday showing no signs of a true bullish reversal and only possibilities of an Continue Reading

CURT/Long  (Technology Sector Communication Equipment)  CURT Is currently a featured trade idea, thought I would post it again because of the chart formation.  The rounded bottom is still intact, the close over the T-Line in the 20 simple moving average are holding nicely.  With a 2 bar consolidation still holding in the bar that got our attention and Friday closing with a near-perfect Doji sets this chart up For a Nice Pinball Play

My entry plan idea: Below 1.16 and above 1.07
My stop plan idea:  Pinball rules = a close below the T-Line

Good Morning, 

SPY:   If the SPY manages to put in an oversold bounce today because it got there a little too quickly, it is possible we do see an oversold bounce.  The end-of-the-day close is what counts, and the end-of-the-day Continue Reading

SPXS/Long  (S&P 500 Bear 3X ETF)  SPXS is an inverse ETF play that is forming a Doji continuation pattern or you may know it as a Doji sandwich.  For the past three months, SPXS has been forming a rounded bottom and has now started a bullish “W” pattern from late November and early December and has led to price closing over the T-Line and the 20-day simple moving average with a Doji continuation pattern formed by the last four bars, and today may be the continuation bar.

My entry plan idea: Buy on positive trading above the T-Line and/or on trading above 21.77
My stop plan idea:  A close below 21.61

CRNT/Long  (Technology Sector Communication Equipment)  CRNT has formed a Pinball formation with the first target about $1.29 and the second about $1.55. The Pinball formation is a terrific chart pattern to understand.  Many times I refer to it as my ATM machine.  CRNT is now starting to form the left side and center of the bottom with a double bottom and a close over the T-Line, and in this case, a close over the 20-day simple moving average as well.  I'll talk about the intraday charts in the trading this morning at 9:10 AM Eastern.

  • There are a few inverse ETFs on the members’ watchlist that we will also be following very closely today.  Any one of them could have easily been the featured trade idea.

My entry plan idea:  Ideally an inside day above $1.05 and below $1.13, but I will also look to buy on positive trading above yesterday's high.  Be careful not to chase.
My stop plan idea:  Pinball rules - a close below the T-Line
