Today's Swing Trade Ideas

GALT/Long  (Healthcare sector drug manufacturers)  GALT Looks poised for a run positioned in a Rounded Bottom Breakout (RBB) and a Doji continuation pattern or Doji sandwich.  $6.50 would make a good target which equals about 18 1/2%, then about $7.70 which is about 40% away.  At that point, we will then consider the 200-day simple moving average.

My entry plan idea:  Below $5.49 and above the T-Line would be my preference; buying above $5.49 would also work.   Just monitor the pullback.
My stop plan idea:    A close back below the T-Line

Today's Swing Trade Ideas

APT/Long (Healthcare Medical Devices) APT had a huge run a few weeks ago, it's now pulled back to the 50 day simple moving average and near a double bottom. It appears it's gapping this morning and $4.15 will be an important area to hold. APT has the potential of a swing trade of 20% to the 20 day simple moving average and another 37% to the crown.

My entry plan idea:  (Currently own @ 3.78) Buy on positive trading above $4.15
My stop plan idea:    A close below $4.14

Good Morning,

SPEX/Long (Industrial Sector Business Services) SPEX has been forming a fry pan bottom for the last four months and recently closed over the 50-day simple moving average on volume. It then consolidated for a few weeks and is now back over the 50-day simple moving average with the T-Line and the 20-day simple moving average following price. With the close of Friday, we have formed a rounded bottom breakout. With about 90% possible profit to the 200-day simple moving average, SPEX could be a profit maker. Back on September 30, I did buy and have continued to hold. As of Friday's close with a 12% profit, SPEX is now set up to grab a good piece of that 90% possible profit.

My entry plan idea:  (Already long) Buy or add more on an intraday pullback
My stop plan idea:   A close below the 50-day simple moving average for now

 

Good Morning,

SPY: I would suspect that all eyes will be watching what price does with the...

Good Morning,

ISNS/Long  (Technology Sector Software Application)  ISNS is setting up to possibly be one of our Rounded Bottom Breakouts (RBB).  It hasn't broken out over the 50-day moving average yet, but if it does, it could easily run to the 200- period moving average which is about 15% from the 50-period moving average.  ISNS has been trading in a bearish manner for a few weeks.  A few days ago, a Bullish Engulf was printed followed by a couple of Doji's and then another very small Bullish Engulf with a volume breakout, yesterday’s close over the T-Line and the 20-period  moving average.

My entry plan idea Below 3.33 and above the T-Line

My stop plan idea:   A close below the T-Line

Good Morning,

SPY:  Yesterday, a bearish dark cloud cover was printed on the SPY after reaching a new high into resistance.  A bearish dark cloud cover does not necessarily mean...

VHC/Long (Technology Software Infrastructure) VHC is set up as one of our Pinball strategies with a double bottom and what looks like a reverse cup and handle. The Pinball setup was actually three days ago, but yesterday the buyers painted a Bullish Engulf closing over the 20 SMA and the T-Line. Based on Pinball rules, we look at the 34 EMA as the target direction and with 39% possible, how can we pass up this trade. Last Tuesday night, the members’ e-learning was dedicated to the Pinball setup. You can find the video in the members’ area under “archived videos.”

My entry plan idea:   An inside day, buy below yesterday's high and above yesterday's low.
My stop plan idea:   A close below the T-Line

 

Yesterday in the trading room we exercised our right to be profit traders:

Closed SHLD for 28.97%,

SCOK currently up 8.25% on the profit trader list.
It helps to have over 100 friends in a trading room to talk and trade with. So why not make Hit & Run Candlesticks your "Cheers" Trading Room?
