Market Speculator Part-Time | Swing Trade Report

Quick Summary:

Still watching SPY 190 (long) and 195 (short).  Video on WYNN and dealing with gap downs, along with focus list analysis.  Breakout-pullbacks of interest include BIDU, EGHT, LPNT, UA, ISRG and BIDU. New additions ZU and PNRA.  Market leader stocks of interest include GOOGL, PCLN, Z and TSLA.

Video Analysis  (11 minutes):

Today I talk about the gap down in WYNN and how to handle an opening gap down when you are in a trade.  The rest of the discussion is around focus list stocks and a few new breakouts


Key SPY Pivot Levels: 199 : recent old high, 195.25: 50 dma, 190 gap fill and support level

SPY 8-6-14

Under the Hood and Trading Game Plan:

Little has changed in the SPY chart.  We continue to look to short around $195 and go long around $190, while placing close attention to the volume patterns that accompany price movement.

IWM again was a little stronger than SPY.  As with SPY, I am looking to short on a low volume bounce and enter on a down move to around $108.  Notice how the IWM has bounced in the past at this level (arrows on chart).

IWM 8-6-14

Current Trades

I am still holding DECK, TWTR and WYNN.  WYNN gapped down hard and is discussed in the video.

The Focus List

For now I only have the catalyst driven breakouts on the focus list.

EGHT, LPNT, UA, ISRG and BIDU are all near entry level on slight pullbacks.

New Additions:

ZU has been forming a bottoming range since the May gap down.  Volume has been good within this range and now we have a breakout over the 50dma.  Entry on pullback to $37-38.  Initial target $42.50.  Stop just under the 50 dma around $36.

PNRA is another bottoming formation showing signs of breakout out.  The stock broke out on strong volume and is now pulling back just under the 50dma.  Entry in the $145-146.50 range.  Initial target between $155-160.

I have Daddy/Daughter brunch at Panera once a week with my daughters, so I love that this stock is picking up.

PNRA 8-6-14

Market Leaders

These are stocks that I always watch, though they might not be in my tradeable watchlist, nor are they actually always leading the market.

TSLA breaking out.  Looking for pullback to $150.  FB pulling back to gapfill.  Z is entering buy area on pullback.  GOOGL nearing moving average support at $560.  PCLN pulling back nicely post breakout.
