Watchers for the 11-20-13 trading session


Treat this as still an initial red session Supernovae. See my previous comments for more details. Finished down a bit over 1% with daily doji print. Up a bit A/H. Potential short.


Another still maturing Supernovae. Still looking to fade this on weakness. Rose almost 3% but closed under the open. Down A/H a bit over 0.50%. See my previous comments for strategies.


First red day Supernovae. Finished down over 7% last time, so more down side might be in the cards. If it had fallen much more than 10% then less could be expected as plausible. Always watch day 2 of a busted one. The plan is to play for more reddening on day 2. Conditional entry. A flat, nominally green or red open that immediately sells off on heavy volume or sports traditional confirmed weakness cues is a fade entry. Keep flat on high volume greening or strength, especially early. This is somewhat likely given the fairly red result of Tuesday. Avoid entries as a short on big gaps up or down, but down is probably worse. Keep flat on consistently strong price action, like trading above the opening price level after the noise candle. Avoid spike up long scalps, too. Selling volume was medium, range bigger. Weak short signals, but gravy possible.


New Supernovae scan return. A 4 day move up which closed below the highs and above the open. Volume small most days, peak Tuesday. Eventually this can be shorted since it is up so absurdly. I suspect like many such plays it can go further than anyone expects, though. Conditional entry. On a higher open, it might yield a rapid green to red on Wednesday and spike down for a short scalp. This might even be a gap and crap. A fade on confirmed weakness cues anytime or heavy dumping on volume from or near the bell. Ideal is a flat or barely green or red open, followed by a big move down on volume to short into. Avoid big gaps, especially downward ones. Do not short into initial strength or greening. Box and drop to wait for the distribution print, if desired and avoid top fish timing fades. Keep flat on positive price action, no scalps.


New 52's. Short term, these yearly high stocks often go higher. Consistently strong price action, like trading above the opening price level after the first 5 minutes, is a long. Or, if it gaps down a bit to debut or opens flat and falls briefly, a red to green and hold with strong volume. Also long on spiking up at or near the gun as a scalp. This might be an EOD exit, depending on how it holds up. Also long on a break above to new yearly highs (over 5.50) and holds. Avoid shorts, keep flat on true weakness. Nice move above 4. Needs to keep above the Tuesday close, or at least above 5 on pull backs to remain viable as a long, aside from any early noise. Early sustained prices over 5.50 are ideal for aggressive entry. Up A/H almost 17% so wait up.


Red floater scan return. Idea is to play for more down side on day 2. Closed red by almost 6% on Tuesday off a flat open that ended below the debut. Stop just above the Tuesday session high (3.30) to cap losses on head fake fade entries. I'm only into the shorting possibility if it surfaces, keeping flat on strength. Also a short on heavy volume dumps/confirmed weakness cues. Modest sell volume on Tuesday means it may have some chances to work. A 3 fail may be ideal. Avoid big gaps/longs. Panic dump? Up A/H over 4.5% so wait up.


B/O scan. I like it long back over 2.98 and holds. Ideal to stay over that on tests aside from early noise if it triggers. Stops also possible just under the close on Tuesday or the 1st 30 minute low of Wednesday. Avoid all shorts and all big gaps. The low on Tuesday is too far away to use for risk managing stops. Also a long on spiking up at or near the gun as a scalp. Moderate volume on the rise, a tepid sign for new buys. Exiting below 2.80 on fails after trigger entry is possibly advisable. Early r/g buy?
