Watchers for the 4-21-15 trading session


Again see my previous comments. Supernovae still advancing. Up over 19.5% on larger volume than last time. Possible fade. A stubborn stock that should pop soon given all the up days.


Watch again. A recent initial red session Supernovae that rose over 10% today on less volume. Fade option.


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 11.77) and holds. Avoid shorts, keep flat on true weakness. Nice move above 11. Needs to keep above the Monday close, or at least above 12 on pull backs to remain viable as a long, aside from any early noise. Early sustained prices over 12.63 are ideal for aggressive entry.


In play both ways. As a long on continuation of momentum above 1.73/holds. Or as a scalp up at or near the gun for a scalp buy. Or, as a short on a fall fail of 1.50/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 1.50. The fade is more likely given the price action on Monday, but keep an open mind.


B/O scan. I like it long back over 2.40 and holds. Ideal to stay over that on tests aside from early noise if it triggers. Stops also possible just under the close on Monday or the 1st 30 minute low of Tuesday. Avoid all shorts and all big gaps. The low on Monday is too far away to use for risk managing stops. Also a long on spiking up at or near the gun as a scalp. Modest volume on the rise, a fair sign for new buys. Exiting below 2.20 on fails after trigger entry is possibly advisable. Early r/g buy?


Bullish Engulfing. I like this long over 5.99/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 Tuesday. More conservatively a stop placed under Monday's close, too. The low on that day is arguably not too far away to use for stops. Ideally stays above 5.80 on pull backs to remain viable as a long if it triggers. No big gaps or shorts.


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 5.29/holds. Avoid all big gaps, especially down ones. If it gaps over the trigger or 5.27 let it test/hold/perk 1st before entering. No shorts, keep flat on redness. Low sell volume, which may mean overt buy interest has not yet arrived, suggesting reversal upwards is still developing.
