Swing Trading Watch List – Feb 1, 2012

A small, but noteworthy wedge has developed on the broader indices’s. I zoomed into a 60-min chart of the SPY to help identify it clearly. Given that the daily trend for the past 2 months has been up we will anticipate a breakout to the upside, but take a more delta neutral approach to weigh in for a potential sharp sell off. Stocks to Watch on 2/1: Longs: FEIC, HMSY, INTU, KFT, ROST, TJX Shorts: BBG, CVD Grab the RSS…

Swing Trading Watch List – Jan 24, 2012

Today’s selling could spark some good intraday trading ranges, but we’ll confirm the ensuing sell off on a break of today’s low.  Sometimes when we become so ‘extended’ and the talking heads are all saying ‘a sell off is overdue’ the opposite occurs and we see a big rally. As always, plan for both scenarios. Stocks to Watch on 1/24: Longs: CGNX, CNC, CP, HD, LOW Shorts: IART, SA Grab the RSS Feed to have the daily watch list delivered…

Swing Trading Watch List – Jan 23, 2012

How I Create My Watch Lists I begin my watch list building by looking at the broader market before I begin. I ask myself “Where are we…
