Market Speculator Part-Time | Swing Trade Report

Quick Summary:

SPY analysis has not changed.  Some focus list stocks look ready to pullback.  Today’s entry TOUR.  Still holding SPXU.

Video Analysis:

I am trading and writing remotely today, so no video.  The regular intra-day video will be back tomorrow. In the meantime, you can view a blog post about the breakout-remount setup, with a video illustration.

Key SPY Pivot Levels: Old high 199,  50 dam 196.41, 197.50 gap fill and support level

SPY 8-27-14

Under the Hood and Trading Game Plan:

Uneventful day today, though it was the first day there was not a gain.  Our analysis still applies.  Key levels to watch if the old high at $199 is violated are $197.50 and $196.28.  This second moving average support would provide good entry for individual stocks we are watching.

The current game plan is to manage the SPY short position.  I continue to look for long setups on momo stocks, but will not chase.

Current Trades

I am still holding SPXU as a way to short SPY.

I entered TOUR today at $19.75.  It has pulled back from the 50 dma and could bounce here.  Stop is at $18.90 and initial target is near highs around $24.  This gives us a 4:1 reward to risk ratio.

I only took half my normal position size due to overbought market conditions.  If we get a pullback, stops on this trade will likely be hit.
