Today's Swing Trade Ideas

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
