Order flow Insights

The FlowAlgo algorithm flashed a buy signals on $NOK, $CWH, and $SIRI.   We are already long $CWH and it has been performing well.  Option traders are looking for more in the name.   I view SIRI and NOK as more or less speculative names.  I took a small position in NOK Feb 4.5 calls

Pressure to Perform as Mega-cap Tech is Set to report

Not a ton of commentary here but with market averages at the highs and bull sentiment off the charts, it will be important for mega-cap tech to knock it out of the park.  I think that these companies will do well, but as is always the case, its the reaction to earnings that matter.  If there is any wobbling or wavering in these reports you’ll probably see some sizable sell offs.  Let’s see how they do and reassess once we get more info.


In the companion video, I cover off the FATMAAN names using the daily timeframe. Some very interesting trade locations are on the horizon that will set up well for swing traders on the daily time frame.


A detailed walk-through of the levels and trading strategy for the indexes is given in the video ( link above) . The static charts are provided for reference. The FATMAAN names are also reviewed in the video.
