Swing Trade Position Review & Set Up Ideas

$NTR –  Move stops to B/E

We are long NTR as a resurce play in the commodity sector.  Holding up well during this sell off.  Lets move our stop to breakeven.

$SCPL – Staying long

We followed unusual option activity and a nice chart pattern and are in Nov 15 calls.  Stay long.  Chart looks great and is bucking the tide.

$PDD – Stay Short

We shorted PDD via Puts on Friday. A bit of a front run, but I think chances are good that price breaks into the massive air pocket below and finds the 200ema as T1.  Measured move on a breakdown implies a target of $57.

$TWTR – Long Idea / Watching

Twitter has held up remarkably well and is looking bullish as price forms a base at $39. Not sure I want a tech long into the teeth of a tech sell off but from a chart perspective, looks very good.
