SharePlanner Reversal Indicator: A Light at the End of the Tunnel

November 21, 2012 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: QQQ , IWM , DIA

Reversal Indicator technicals shows the potential for a sustained bounce

I've been skeptical of this week's bounce believing that much of it has to do with the historic bullishness of Thanksgiving week, amid a very oversold market desperate to bounce, but we are showing on the SharePlanner Reversal Indicator below, a glaring signal for a continued move to the upside.   [more]

My Short Watch-List - Only the Worst

November 15, 2012 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: KORS , TIF , SHW

Targeting stocks that will be ripe to short after the market bounce

At this point, when compiling my short watch-list, I'm not looking for setups that are good for "right-this-moment' though there are some in this list, instead, what I'm looking for is a post-market-bounce list of short setups. Most of the desirable short plays out there have already made their move - i.e. the easy money has been made.   [more]

Lazy Trade Long & Short: TDS & DKS

November 14, 2012 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: DKS , TDS , LULU

Portfolio update on existing long and short positions 

I've been active today primarily covering a couple of my short positions. The first was in Invensense (INVN) at $10.79 for a 4.6% gain. The other one (unfortunately) was in Lululemon at $68 when I was uncomfortable with the coiling price action occurring during the President's speech he was giving to the press.  [more]

Clean Energy Starting To Look a Bit Dirty: Shorting CLNE

November 14, 2012 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: CLNE

Clean Energy Fuels (CLNE) Offering a Favorable Risk/Reward Setup

I've taken a short trade in CLNE at $12.88. The stock has a higher level of risk from the stand point of holding it overnight, as it has had the tendency to gap some of late. However, this stock is running slap-dab right into resistance at around the $13 level as you can see below. My stop is at 13.45 which gives me about 4% for a stop-loss, which is about the max I'm willing to go.   [more]

Just When I Can't Find a Descent Looking Long Setup, MLNX Comes Along

November 13, 2012 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: MLNX

I won't talk to much here, but I did add Mellanox Technologies as a long play to the portfolio, bringing my portfolio total to 5 short plays and 1 long play. Mainly MLNX is used to hedge some against my existing long positions, in the case I am wrong about the market's direction going forward (which happens to be bearish).   [more]

9 Stocks Ready for the Bounce

November 13, 2012 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: DTE , WLP , PNW

Stocks Ready To Bounce: Namely Utilities  & Insurance

There's no doubt that this market is oversold on multiple time frames, namely the 30min, daily, and weekly charts. We've also tried to bounce the last two days, and have failed. Today, despite the lower open, the bulls ran out of the gate to fill the gap and march this market higher. So far it has rallied 17 points off of the SPX morning lows.   [more]

Lazy Trade Long and Short: GGC & SODA

November 07, 2012 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: AXLL , SODA

A difficult session to trade today

Today I have yet to make a single trade. Not because I'm not a willing to participate, but because when the market gaps down like it did today, from a swing-trading stand point, it makes it very difficult to get short the market without chasing the market, and with confirming bearish patterns on the SPX confirming at this point (who knows what the close will bring) I'm not really all that crazy about getting long on anything.   [more]

My Final Electoral Map Prediction for President

November 03, 2012 – Comments (13)

We are on the cusp of one of the closest Presidential elections in our lifetimes and throughout the course of this campaign I've provided a couple of electoral maps that have shown a slight Obama edge creep into a minor Romney lead. However, I believe that this election is breaking favorably now for Gov. Romney and the polling that we are seeing from early voting, including the extensive data that Gallup has provided has shown that what was a +16 point advantage for Obama in 2008 over McCain has turned into a +6 point edge for Romney in the swing states.   [more]
