Watchers for the 11-5-14 trading session


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 6.35) and holds. Avoid shorts, keep flat on true weakness. Nice move above 6. Needs to keep above the Tuesday close, or at least above 6 on pull backs to remain viable as a long, aside from any early noise. Early sustained prices over 6.33 are ideal for aggressive entry.


See my previous comments for this recent initial red session Supernovae. It closed above the open off a gap down, advancing 1% Tuesday on low volume. Still up a lot, might have more fade legs.


Red floater scan return. Idea is to play for more down side on day 2. Closed red almost 3% on Tuesday off a gap down open that ended below the debut. Stop just above the Tuesday session high (18.85) 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. Moderate sell volume on Tuesday means it may have unclear chances to work. An 18 fail may be ideal. Avoid big gaps/longs. Panic dump?


B/O scan. I like it long back over 3.13 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 3 on fails after trigger entry is possibly advisable. Early r/g buy?


Bullish Engulfing. I like this long over 27.11/holds. Low volume on the rise, which is a good sign for new buyers. Keep flat on real weakness aside from a typical red to green move, etc. Stops just under the low last time or the initial 30 minute one on Wednesday. More conservatively a stop placed under Tuesday's close, too. The low on that day is not too far away to use for stops. Ideally stays above 26.29 on pull backs to remain viable as a long if it triggers. No big gaps or shorts. 


In play both ways. As a long on continuation of momentum above 2.60/holds. Or as a scalp up at or near the gun for a scalp buy. Or, as a short on a fall fail of 2.25 and holds. Or as a scalp sell on a pop down at or near the bell. Avoid all big gaps. Be careful maintaining a short on a reversal back over 2.50. The fade is more likely given the price action on Tuesday, but keep an open mind.


Hammer scan long. The tail is not too long to use the low as a stop level unless the position is very large. Use the previous session close alternatively instead. Trigger is above the high of last time, here above 24.29/holds. Avoid all big gaps, especially up ones. If it gaps over the trigger or 24.13 let it test/hold/perk 1st before entering. No shorts, keep flat on redness. Modest sell volume, which could mean overt buy interest is still arriving, suggesting reversal upwards is soon but not yet here.
