Review of Triggered Trades from Sept 12 Set ups.


$VZ –  Broke out above $55.  I got long with a $54.50 stop


$BRKS –   I got short on the break of support at the open yesterday. Looking for a  $5 gap fill down to $30

$NOAH – Lost support at $40. I got short with a stop at $40.50

New Ideas – Pounding the Software Group

Post Earnings

$PVTL – OMG! They pulled the rug!

Pivotal Software reported earnings last night and it sold off hard. This morning it will open down around  $21-$22 after closing last night near $30. Nimble traders can use the premarket range to set upside / downside stops if a directional bias presents itself on the open.

Swing traders with a longer term perspective could let today play out before deciding if taking a position either long or short looks attractive. Stops could be set based on the closing range.

Long Ideas

Software appears to be firming up with several names making moves

$CRM – Daily Chart

Salesforce appears ready to make a leg higher. Traders can get long above $155. Place a stop below $155 wherever you feel comfortable.  $154.50 ish

$LXFT – Daily Chart

A $5 gap has yet to be filled above $147. Price has been consolidating under gap resistance for a week or so. Seems poised for a move. Alarm $147.50 for a heads up. THe stock has already filled one gap; maybe time for another

$MANH – Daily Chart

Broke out to new highs yesterday. There is still an opportunity to get long against $58 breakout level.

Short Ideas

$CC – From the Weekly Chart

Stock breaking down this week from the recent trading range. Obviously we did not catch the initial breakdown but given the long term look of the chart, to my eye this looks destined to test support at $36.  10% lower from here.  Aggressive traders could take a shot here.  Conservative traders can add it to their watch list. I’d definitely consider taking a downside shot if the stock rallies back to re-test that initial breakdown level.  Either way, I think this heads lower over time.

Hope these ideas help. Head into the trading day empowered and prepared.

Happy hunting and good trading!!
