A Few Stocks That Only Go Up

February 29, 2012 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: MCD , CMG , DLTR

With this market most stocks have only gone straight up over the past two months, but below I've put together a list of stocks who are shining brighter than all the others. And No - I did not include Apple (AAPL) - that goes without saying, and the trade is so crowded and parabolic, you just know the carpet is going to be pulled out from underneath them.   [more]

Breakout or Down: Here's Your Swing-Trades

February 27, 2012 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: CCL , BXP , GT

We open lower this morning, the bulls jump in dramatic fashion and pushes the market higher and higher...and higher, then it settles during the lunch hour and trades sideways. Now the question becomes, as we go into this afternoon, whether we rip higher like we saw last Thursday. I'm thinking we do, because that is the precedent that has been established at this point.   [more]

Swing Trades for QIHU, YGE, AAU & ABC

February 23, 2012 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: ABC , QIHU , YGE

Just by the dip.... that's really all that you really need to know for the past 2 months and counting. Ultimately it leads to complacency and then a lot of people, who thought the strategy would work forever, getting burned pretty darn good. Because when the market starts to drop (and trust me, it always does...eventually) people insist on buying the dip all the way down.   [more]

Four Rumored Swing Trade Setups

February 21, 2012 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: BRCM , NSC , BAX

The news today, beyond the faulty assumption that Greece banks is once and for all saved, and we no longer have to fret about their future, the other piece of news is Dow crossing 13,000, which defintely holds some psychological importance for the market - careful it could also be that level where the sell programs kick in - who knows.   [more]

Something To Ponder While The Market Is Closed

February 20, 2012 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: SPY , QQQ , DIA

I came across a Flash-Crash video on YouTube, and of course I couldn't help but watch it - (it's chicken-soup for the bear soul). In lieu of today's "Important" Greece "Agreement", I thought I'd post this video, not so much for the sake of watching the flash-crash unfold (though it never gets old), but to see what was at the forefront of that day (HINT: Starts with a "Gr" and ends with "eece").   [more]

Mid-Day Swing-Trade Setups

February 17, 2012 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: LLL , FTR , CHK

Since the open we've seen selling pressure come across the market, and logically speaking, I'd expect it to continue through the day with it being a 3-day weekend (markets closed on Monday for President's day) and a very important meeting (yes another one of those) on Monday while the markets are closed concerning the bailout agreement. The bulls have banked a lot of profit at this point, and it would seem silly to risk it over this weekend. But hey....what do I know!?!  [more]

8 Stocks The Street is Buying

February 16, 2012 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: TEVA , MAA , BTU

By far one of my best screens in determining who is buying what on the street! What you will find are those stocks that, among other variables that I use, 1) Gaining an increased amount of coverage by brokerage firms and analysts, and 2) Being upgraded on a regular basis. This is a good screen to show you where the smart money is putting their capital to work at, without you having to actually ask them.  [more]

DF, CELG, GT & MWW: My Long and Short Swing Trades

February 14, 2012 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: DF , GT , CELG

So far in the early morning trading the bears have managed to sell each of the rips the market has given them. That doesn't mean things can't change later on, but for now that is what we are seeing. I mentioned in this morning's trading plan that if the market could sell-off enough over a multi-day period (let's face it the bulls are not intimidated any more by a one-day sell-off) and shake enough bulls out of their long positions, it would actually be the perfect scenario for this market to rocket higher thereafter, because those same people who were shaken out will be jumping back in again to propel the market higher, and the existing shorts (if there are any more of those out there) will be forced to cover yet again.   [more]

SharePlanner Reversal Indicator

February 12, 2012 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: SPY , QQQ , IWM

It has taken the market, what seems like an eternity, to finally cross over and start moving down again. We had our first bit of sustained selling of the new year and that has finally led to a reversal in the SPRI. This typically means at the very least, we see stock  prices struggle for the next two weeks or so - very rarely do they start surging again once we get the reversal signal. Not only that, but I'm liking the doji candle, and the fact that the Daily SPRI that I also  track is showing a reversal at the same time as well.   [more]

First, let's take a look at market rallies dating back to 1963, nearly 50 years of market data using weekly chart data, to find out what rallies, on a consecutive positive week basis, were greater than what we are currently seeing.  [more]

Mid-Day Swing Trades To Take On

February 06, 2012 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: PG , AKS , EMR

I'm at a point with this rally, to where if it rallies much higher then I won't be surprised and if it drops from here, then I'd say it was long due. I thought it would have dropped at some point in the past two weeks and it has defied the odds, and has done nothing but push higher and higher, so what is to say that it won't continue to do so?  [more]
