Watchers for the 1-14-15 trading session


First red day Supernovae. Finished red over 8% 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 fairly likely given the sizable 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 low, range a lot wider. Mixed short signals at best on those counts, but watch it.


See my comments for OVIT above. Another initial red session Supernovae. Ended down over 10% though here on small volume, so the odds should be weaker for more downside, but watch it.


Same as for the above 2 plays. Small volume least favorable odds since it fell almost 37% today.


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 14.03) and holds. Avoid shorts, keep flat on true weakness. Nice move above 13. Needs to keep above the Tuesday close, or at least above 13 on pull backs to remain viable as a long, aside from any early noise. Early sustained prices over 13.63 are ideal for aggressive entry.


In play both ways. As a long on continuation of momentum above 7.`3/holds. Or as a scalp up at or near the gun for a scalp buy. Or, as a short on a fall fail of 7/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 7. The fade is more likely given the price action on Tuesday, but keep an open mind.


B/O scan. I like it long back over 6 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 a bit too far away to use for risk managing stops. Also a long on spiking up at or near the gun as a scalp. Medium volume on the rise, a tepid sign for new buys. Exiting below 5.75 on fails after trigger entry is possibly advisable. Early r/g buy?


Bullish Engulfing. I like this long over 1.88/holds. Low volume on the rise, which is a fair 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 too far away to use for stops. Ideally stays above 1.70 on pull backs to remain viable as a long if it triggers. No big gaps or shorts.
