FREE (Industrial Sector Shipping and Ports) Be very careful here; this trade is not for everybody and is meant to have a little fun with. It's a cheapie that can be wild and crazy. FREE has started to construct a bottom starting July 23, laid some foundation and then started to rise Wednesday closing over the 50-day simple moving average yesterday. This has made FREE a rounded bottom breakout candidate with about 30% short-term profit potential. As mentioned above, be careful with this one as it can turn and be painful. This type of trade is not for everybody.

SPEX (Industrial Sector Business Services) There is 160% of profits to be had to the 200-day moving average and forming a rounded-bottom breakout, which, FYI, is my favorite chart pattern of all!

AAPL (Technology Sector Consumer-Electronics) AAPL was featured as our trade idea on July 8, and after a rough start for a couple of days, it did pull out a nice 4% profit. APPL has now pulled back to the 50-day simple moving average and painted a little hammer.

TVIX Long (Daily 2x VIX Short Term) We can draw a buy box around the last three bars of TVIX and with the directional target about 65% away, it's perfectly logical that we could capture a piece of that profit, if not all. TVIX has formed a Hit-And-Run Candlestick Rounded-Bottom Breakout.
